This a reflection from a book entitled “God is Always Hiring: 50 Lessons for Finding Fulfilling Work” by Regina Brett.
Lesson #1 — “When you don’t get what you want, you get something better–Experience.
This chapter was a reminder to me that it is completely okay to want more than just a job. Because I only have one life and can’t redeem the time, I should be looking to do what I love to do rather than doing something just pays the bills.
“In God’s economy, nothing is ever wasted. The dots all connect in time,” Brett writes. That’s such a refreshing reminder. There are no bad experiences. All experiences count. Thank you, Lord!
Today, I’m making a list of all the lessons I’ve learned in all the places I’ve had the privilege of working. ALL experiences count.
