Structure and Work Days
Good morning, World!
I woke up at 2 AM this morning. I have bathed, taken the dogs out and am now eating leftover vegetarian hamburger helper (I am out of hamburger meat, so am using beans instead). I have also started washing clothes.
I thought about taking them to mom's to do later today, but why put it off when I have the opportunity to do it right now?
I don't know whether to sweat or be cold in this weather! I'm just glad that, even running everything a lot, my electric bill is half what it used to be.
Today is the sabbath, so I am not going to work. But, my alarm clock is set now to 8 PM and 4 AM. 8 is to remind me that it is time to go to bed. 4 is to wake me up. I plan on being more structured from here on out. It will be an adjustment.
The Bible refers to work as being done in the day, when there is light. I don't think this means that we can't work during the night, but the blessings are more bountiful during daylight hours.
The Bible also hints that a man's work day is from sun-up until sun-down, and that there are 12 daylight hours in the day - which means a biblical work day is 12 hours, not 8. And, work is much more than standing on your feet doing something hard.
I plan on doing a study about this later. Right now we are studying "The Laws of God".
I also plan to do a study on investing, according to a Christian world-view.
I realize that the way I do things may not be entirely biblical as a Christian, but I am doing the best I can to do it right with what I know. That simply means that I am still learning, and I am eager to learn whether or not I am doing it right so that I can change or continue as I am. By studying the Word of God on a daily basis, I slowly become who He wants me to be. With knowledge is power and success.
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
Well, time to get this day started.
Have a blessed Sabbath! (Mine ALWAYS is!)
