"Unless the Lord builds the house,
its builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the watchmen stand guard in vain.
In vain you rise early and stay up late,
toiling for food to eat--
for He grants sleep to those He loves.
Blessed are all who fear the Lord,
who walk in His ways.
You will eat the fruit of your labor;
blessings and prosperity will be yours."
Psalm 127:1-2 & Psalm 128:1-2
I just recently had a modification in my job...I am now working full time as a realtor. Well, we all know how the real estate market has been going recently.
I was working as a pend-to-close agent for our real estate team and received salary plus bonus' for the past year to weather out this storm.
I remember before the pend-to-close agent position how I strived to work beyond the normal hours, working feverishly to make-up for the slowdown in the market...pay is commission only.
This time...I will not work in my own strength.
I have learned the above passage and have learned it well. :)
His strength, not mine.
His hours, not mine.
His provisions, not mine.
Praise Him that I have learned this lesson and have a renewed trust!
Today I am linking with Words to Live By with Tracey
Spiritual Sundays with Charlotte & Ginger!
Have a blessed Sunday!
