Career Manifesto:

His Work / My motive at work will be: I will focus on having a God-centered workday. I will do this by surrendering the day to Him as well as starting the morning off by spending time in God's word, praying and listening to Him. My motive to surrender daily to God is to obtain success in Christ with fulfillment and balance in doing the best I can and having the joy of being rightly connected to God. I will perform my work as 'Christ-like' by focusing on Him and by gratifying Jesus Christ moment by moment. I must yield to Him by doing my job and His will from the heart. 'Whatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord.' Ephesians 6:5-8

His way / your work style:

God would have me demonstrate servant leadership in my office / work place through the mindset, lifestyle and confidence. Servant leadership would also be demonstrated through integrity: a progressive yielding of my will to God's in the areas of attitude, action, and relationships. I will avoid compromise by deciding ahead of time to commit to do the right thing. 'Oh Lord, who may abide in Your tent? Who may dwell on your holy hill? He who walks with integrity, and works righteously, and speaks with truth in his heart..' Psalms 15:1-5

His results / Your outlook:

God is the one in control. He is the one who deserves the praise. Praise is given when you have an attitude of gratitude. God's plan for us is a Christ-like character. As a sincere learner, I will ask what I can learn from any given situation by asking questions and praying over difficult circumstances. Expect that every element in our day will provide an opportunity to honor Him. His results are accomplished by having an attitude of expectancy. 'For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.' Ephesians 2:10

'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and future. Then you call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.' Jeremiah 29:11-13
