A few weeks ago, I was out in my front yard doing some yard work, when I happened to get into a brief conversation with my neighbor across the street. My neighbor runs a small distribution company out of his house - he sells and delivers for a popular snack cake company, and I would venture a guess that he is financially successful in his business.
My neighbor recently purchased a rather large RV/motor home and I was helping him back it out of his driveway. Before he pulled away to go camping for the weekend, he said to me, "This is why I work so hard during the week so I can get away for the weekend."
After my neighbor made that statement, it made me feel sad for him and the work he does. I am thankful that the Lord has provided numerous work and career opportunities for me that are mentally stimulating, meaningful, and have eternal rewards!
I don't know what you do for living, but I sure never want to be in a job/career situation where I don't enjoy what I do on a day-to-day basis. Are there going to be difficult days, days in which you want to get away for a weekend? Sure there are always going to be those kind of days, but I would encourage you to pursue work that aligns with your life purpose and goals. Seek God's direction and will for your vocation, career, and life's calling.
