23Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward.You are serving the Lord Christ. (Colossians 3:23-24)

This is a verse that has been hitting very close to home lately as I have not been feeling very invested in my job.  After the merger there were rumors that some of us might not have jobs much longer.  I continued to work hard and to try not to let the rumors affect me.  Plus I figured they were out of my control anyway.  The dust did eventually settle and we were all safe.

Unfortunately reviews were recently done and many of us were not happy with our raises.  I feel like my company is not that invested me.  It’s definitely a hard environment to be motivated at as people are quitting left and right complaints are continually in the air.  I have my resume out there and have begun applying for more jobs.

I just have to remember that I even though ProQuest provides my paycheck, the one that I am working for and accountable to is God.  I am working for Him and not my boss.  It is not how much I make at the end of the day, but how I glorify God with what I have been called to.

Heavenly Father, help me to die to my selfishness.  Give me an attitude that does not look at my circumstances or my desires.  Aid me in diligence.  Guide me in my pursuit of excellence.  Not for my gain, but for your name and for you to be known, by others seeing me stewarding my time and talents for you.
