Being Clueless Salt.



This past week was truly rewarding. As I packed up my laptop yesterday at work I felt fulfilled. Tired beyond belief but feeling blessed to be able to go to work each day and do stuff that just made my heart smile.

 Funny, that's not how I felt most of the five days that had just gone by. I had so much to do as a wife, mom, relative and employee that I woke up feeling overwhelmed by it all. I mean I had things to do I didn't even know how to start! I was clueless. 

Sitting here now, I can tell you this: being clueless and accepting that I was clueless was the best thing that happened to me this past week. But back then, each of those days? It was not a comfortable feeling.  It's one thing having too many things to close out but when you have too many things to do and don't have a clue how to even begin half of them? That is not a good place to be! 

So how did I flip it? How did my nasty week morph into my oh-so-fulfilling one?
I confessed my cluelessness. 

Yes, I went to the One person who wouldn't preach at me. The One person who I knew was always able and always willing to help me. I went to my PapaGod. I didn't blow too much grammar. I just said: I can't. Help!. Finish. And He did.

How do I know? See first paragraph. 

What am I saying? 

Lean on Christ alone. No matter how great you think you are at your craft.
Be confident. But don't ever fall into the error of feeling self sufficient. That could cost you you your better than best performance....It's good to be confident about one's abilities but it's great to know that God's abilities working through and for us puts us over and beyond. We go from best and excellent work to meaningful and rewarding work. 

I don't know about you but I feel that fame, acclaim, promotions, awards, etc. are good but to be honest  I just want to go home every day feeling fulfilled and knowing that I'm not owing my employer change. 

Final word?  See poster below. 


That's right! 

So, got the God Factor?
