Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Colossians 3:23Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version
Have you ever worked for the nit pickers before?
Nit picker are those that no matter how good your work is they can always find something wrong with it. They take all the steam out of your desire to excel at what you are doing. This is a real tragedy when the nit pickers are parents.

Teachers can have the same short term affect.
When I do work I like to step back and ask my Heavenly Father if He is pleased with what has been done.
Most times He is and there is a warm feeling of satisfaction flowing through me.
When He isn’t there is no scolding. He just redirects my effort and then I step back and marvel at what we have accomplished and gratefully thank Him. There has been numerous times when He guides me to do something that I have no desire to do but do it with great gusto to please Him, which gives immeasurable pleasure to me.
Most times when the project is completed I see what He was doing and the finished project looks fantastic even though it looked stupid and was laughed at by others or looked ugly but was beautiful when completed.
Sometimes we will not see the purpose of His task until we enter our Heavenly home. That is okay though because we take satisfaction in knowing what we did pleased our Heavenly King in the here and now.
Work for Jehovah, not man. It is appreciated so much more. Joseph a son of Jehovah
