Reflection #2: God is Always Hiring by Regina Brett

Career, Good Thoughts

Today’s lesson from Regina Brett’s “God is Always Hiring” is EVERYTHING changes when you change!

Yes, everything changes when you do. The chapter outlines Ms. Brett’s experience with love and relationships and ends with this truth… “I didn’t need to find the right person. I needed to become the right person.”

We have experiences that lead us to change and to think differently. For the writer, it was the anger associated with failed relationships. It may be something else for you! Whatever it may be, you CAN change. You may not be able to change others but you can make the decision to change yourself. So, the affirmation for today is simply “Thank God for the people, places and things that led me to change!

Reflection #1: God is Always Hiring

Career

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.
