What if success has nothing to do with dollars, prestige, accomplishments, attainments & accumulations ... and everything to do with going to sleep each night, knowing that our talents and abilities were used in a way that served and blessed others ...?
What if our careers are a "secret deployment" into the unawakened world, all about learning how to put love first ...?
What if the pertinent career-question is *not* "what should I do?" but "when I do anything, how should I do it...?"
What if we each have a specific role to play in God's plan for humanity ... and what if it's not our job to *make* it happen ... but to respond to what's revealed, trusting that if we have certain gifts/longings/desires, God put them IN us, and is able to provide us the means to accomplish it ..?
What if sharing our gifts is what makes us happy? What if this is not only OK with God, but what He put us here to do ...?
What if we prayed this:
Dear God, please reveal my life's purpose ... please use me as an instrument of Your peace. Thank You for my talents and abilities -- show me how to use them to spread love. I surrender my job, my career, my gifts, to YOU. Help me to remember that my REAL job is to love the world into awakenedness and healing. Thank You that You ARE unfolding this, in and through me."
Anyone want to join me in that prayer...?
