We learn a great deal about discovering our callings and making an impact from Caleb in the Old Testament. He was an extraordinary man. Five times it is said that Caleb “served the LORD wholeheartedly” and that he had a “different spirit.”
Jesus said 'I have come that you might have life', he wants us to live out this life in everything we do; both at home and at work. We’re probably going to spend half of our life working and yet do we really understand our motives for doing what we do. Pastor Rick Warren interviews Ken Costa on our motivations, calling, purpose, our character and failures. Watch and be inspired.
God calls us to a courageous life. We need to take up the call of faith over fear. I know personally how disappointments of yesterday can drain us of energy for today and tomorrow, how dashed hopes can make us start to doubt our own abilities and judgements at work. I hope, can be a turning point, a flipping point, in your life. I want to inspire you to make bold steps forward in what you do, to punch through the paralysis of fear and leap out the comfort zone.
The buffering circle on a webpage, or the ‘3-5 working days’ delivery date, frustrates an ‘instant’ generation. We want high quality and we want it now. This attitude makes us want a fibre-optic-Amazon-Now version of prayer too, as we wait, often impatiently, for God to move and show us His guidance.
But, the Bible offers a radically different attitude to waiting. God calls us to an intimate relationship with him, one where we are called to embrace time in the Waiting Room.
I’ve found there are seven w’s which shift our attitude as we wait.
Questions about purpose and identity have never been more important than to a generation grappling with unprecedented change. New distractions and pressures appear round every corner, and it can be difficult for Christians to hear God’s voice through the noise of the world. But whether you’re seasoned in the faith or just starting out, nothing could be more important than taking hold of God’s call for your life and living every day with his purposes at heart.
Have you ever asked Why?! Do you wonder where you’re going, or why you're doing what you’re doing. Know Your Why is intended to enable you to hear God’s call in a noisy world.

What is missing most in the workplace today? I have no doubt that it's freedom to live, aliveness. As the workplace has become more stressful, the pressure has caused people to shrivel as human beings. But we are able to reflect life in all it's fullness, this is a distinguishing feature of the Christian at Work.
