I am having repairs done to my house due to water damage. A lot of new people in and out of my house. Recently a contractor asked me what I did for work, I told him I am a hospice nurse. He caught my gaze and said, “Oh you do God’s work!” It was sweet to be validated, but it made me think-don’t we all do God’s work? I believe we are all children of God, the Divine, the Source or whatever you choose to call the mystery of our being.
I truly believe we all do God’s work, and that’s why we are here. Whenever we are kind, loving, compassionate, we are doing God’s work. Whenever we stop to listen to someone who feels forgotten, give a hug to someone who longs for touch, or show up on a Sunday to stop a burst pipe, we are doing God’s work. The plumber who arrived to help me was an angel in my eyes.
We often don’t give ourselves credit for the Divine Beings we are, a Light Body Spirit wrapped in a Biological Body of miraculous complications. Life is messy, very messy. When we stop and help others, we are doing God’s work whether it is our paid job or not. God gave life to everyone of us because he believed in us. He believed that we are worthy of this gift. He gifted us freewill to explore and create and expand the Divine Love he sent us here with. There are endless ways to express this, all are equally important, all are God’s work.
So, I am so grateful for all the people who have showed up to help me, because without them I would not be able to do the work God asks of me. We lift each other up into the Light. We care for each other. Kindness has no downside; it is the song of a compassionate heart. It is a song we can all sing while doing God’s work.
