Busy Work v. Life’s Work

Did you know that your time is one of your most valuable assets?  During our lifetime we will spend a large percentage of our time working on our jobs.  In fact, it is estimated that the average person will spend 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime.

So considering this, it would make sense that we choose a job or career that we find enjoyable and impactful.  However, many people work in jobs or even careers that they don’t even enjoy for months or even years!

It’s so easy to get stuck in a cycle of doing work that we don’t enjoy if we think of a job as a way to make money to pay bills, but I believe strongly that God did not put us on the earth to pay bills and die!  He has given each of us a bigger purpose and He desires us to use our talents, abilities, gifts, and skills (I like to call our T.A.G.S.) to do purpose-driven work which is our life’s work.

A couple of years ago, I was on an interview and I was asked, “What do you think is the difference between a good idea and God’s idea?”  The interviewer felt like all good things come from God so if it’s a good idea then move forward with it. 

At the time, I didn’t have a clear point of view of a good idea versus a God idea, but several months later it became crystal clear what the difference was. So in this blog post, I will share the revelation that I received regarding a good idea v. God idea.

As entrepreneurs and business owners, we usually have more ideas than the average person, and many ideas could be considered good ideas. The question then is, as a believer how do we determine whether to move forward with a good idea and if the idea is what God desires for you to do?  

The biggest way to know the difference is to recognize the difference between a good idea and a God idea:

S2-E12- When God Calls You to do More with Chari Twitty-Hawkins

About This Episode:

When God calls us into to the game we tend to act as if we don’t know who He is talking to. Although we hear Him clearly our response is ‘are you talking to me?’ We allow resistance to rise up stronger than we believe our faith to be. Chari Twitty-Hawkins shares that knowing and understanding when you’ve already asked for something, you don’t need to continuously pray for it. You need to just step up and do it.
