#058 – Doing the Job

#058 – Doing the Job

My grandmother believed in “doing the job”.

But not just any job…

She believed in doing the job that God had given her to do… and doing it well.


God has given each of us something to do.  It may be one thing or even maybe a few.

Are you taking your assignment seriously? Are you working diligently with what you have? How are you balancing the responsibilities that have been given to you?


Balance is hard I know.

But we will be held accountable for what we do with what God has given. Today I encourage you to be careful not to waste what He has gifted to you. You don’t need more to do more.

Use what you have because God is fully aware of what you have and it is enough.

Today I share a little encouragement to you from “Grandma”.  She did a job and did it well and left a wonderful picture in my mind of what it looks like to do what God has asked and to do the job well with discipline and diligence.

In this podcast, I share that picture and the message of her life with you.



Highlights from Today’s Episode:

“Doing the Job” 

  • Don’t waste your talent.
  • Judgement day is coming: God is going to ask us what we did with what He gave.
  • Be diligent to do whatever God has asked you to do.

    Authenticity is unforgettable. Thank you for that.
    1) Where I’ve ended up so far with prophecy…
    (Gen. 3)…”the battle of the two seeds”
    (Rev. 19)…”the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy…” My job: Fill in the blanks between them as these two bookends connect.
    2) Where I’ve ended up with balance…
    Balance is just something I see while swinging past it from one extreme to the other. Jesus just slowed me down to not be so “extreme.” That’s what it took before “doing the job” became a realistic possibility.
    3) When my father’s mother passed away last February, I left the family a tribute video because they’re all near Boston, MA, which was impassable due to inclement weather. Just one poor man’s salute to a soldier with a long standing appointment in her war room…that, and least people would know that not all truck drivers are bullies.

    Thank you for sharing, as always.
    Authenticity is unforgettable.

    Thank you Chrystal for sharing what God laid on your heart!! I had prayed this morning asking God for His direction for this season of my life. I couldn’t wait to listen to your podcast!! God used you to help me see that I need to be cultivating what I have at home first!! I had gotten it in my head that to be “doing something important”, I needed to “doing something big”! And I was convicted that my first mission field is at home!! I am so regretful that it took me so long to realize that!! I had bought into the lies over the years that “women could do it all” but according to God’s plan, we don’t “have to do it all.” Thank you for helping me see that!! Thank you for following the Holy Spirit’s prompting!! He used you to reach me today!! Much love and prayers to you!!

    “You only yield a harvest into the things you cultivate.” I absolutely loved this message. I listened to this message while grading history work from my older son. Thank you for speaking this truth. I needed to hear this message and be encouraged in using my talent in this season of life where I’m homeschooling these rambunctious boys of mine :).
