Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.”    John 6:29


We often wonder what we should do with our lives.  Figuring out what we want to do when we “grow up” is a lifelong process for most.  Here I am in the twilight of my career, and I still am trying to figure out what to do next.

The best career is believing in God and His Son, Jesus.  That’s pretty much it.  Everything else is just supporting that.

St. Paul was a tentmaker by trade.  That’s how he supported himself on his missionary journeys so as not to be a burden perceived as a leech by those he preached to.

My life has been filled with work I never aspired to.  I had but a few years doing anything that I felt called to.  Most of it has been work that paid well however frustrating it has been.  Through it all, I have done what I can to keep my faith in God and to serve Him in His kingdom, like writing this blog.

Whatever your career has become, just remember that your true vocation is to believe in God and Jesus!

  1. This really resonates with me, Jeff. I’m currently serving in my third career. Yet I’ve learned that God is still God, wherever you are! If we stay under His wings, His purpose for us cannot be hindered—no matter what happens.

    Thanks for the encouragement, brother! I read all your posts, but this one really struck a chord with my life experiences. Blessings!

Your ideas are important too!
