So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his. Hebrews 4:9-11
Let us therefore strive to enter that rest…
It’s Workers Day!
A Sabbath for every worker. Not only because the government thought it so, but because the Almighty God practised and commanded it. Just think about it, if the Almighty God sees a need for rest, how much more mere mortals? Severally, I have tried to sample the general workforce idea about this essential day, it is either to just be at home, hangout, attend secular and spiritual events or just stay indoors with no specific idea of what the day could be used for. So, I asked what’s your idea of this auspicious day? Workers’ day!!
Imagine a free cheque of 24 hours that you can use to achieve a number of tangible results, but you must come to terms with the fact that you need REST. Rest for higher level of productivity, impact, relevance, you need to Retreat to SOAR!
Workers’ day is a special day for you, to rest and re-strategise.
However, for the day to be fruitful and useful, you must have a plan for it.
What is the most pressing thing you need to do for YOURSELF?
Is it a medical checkup?
A retreat to evaluate your life and career?
Is it a need for an intelligence upgrade to meet up with your work demand?
Do you need a bonding moment with YOU?
You cannot give what you don’t have, so your total wellbeing must be paramount to you. You cannot afford to be an empty worker.
So, put stuff into you that your world needs, build up yourself by investing maximally in you!
Read that book, take stock of your work in relation to your capacity, vision and life goal, is there synergy?
What and where do you need to improve or reinvent in your chosen field?
For those of us currently unemployed, or those whose business is not doing so well, or those of us that are still out there job hunting, today is also for you to know that there’s hope and rest for you, your time will come and the God of eleventh hour miracle will be on your case.
Just rest in the truth that He is a good good Father! He will yet glorify you! But before He appears and brings your answer, don’t lose yourself, keep your sanity, be faithful where you are and make the best of every opportunity. Your miracle will happen!
For the entrepreneur, trader, artisans, social worker, private or public worker, it is highly essential that you evaluate your work.
What are you investing your life in, is this the best you can do?
Is it worth it?
Do you need to change your job, increase your capacity, and have an additional means of income?
Always know that you can achieve the best when you REST from all stress!
