I hear you, Michael. Sometimes we get lost in the pursuit of our purpose. God’s first priority for us is to love him most, and then love each other sacrificially. In the midst of this, we find who we are and what brings us joy. And no worries about the “men’s discussion”. You are in the right place. We are men... who are trying to do life well... which includes all of the people around us and the things we deal with. I pray for your marriage.

Been strugling with this exact thing recently. my wife and I are likely separating because she never followed her heart in a career path. It has put a strain on our marriage, I am praying that separation and divorce is not the outcome. praying that she finds what God has put her on the path we are on and for what reason we are at this point. I know this is a men's discussion but this seemed to be our struggle right now.

Amen..God always instructs me to give it my best and then he will take care of the rest.

Awesome passage once again for today! Do my best in any given situation is always better when the LORD is kept as the focal point. "Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men!" Col. 3:23 So it is my prayer, that when we men do such, that we leave all the results up to GOD. Then the worry of if we displayed the life of Christ will be no factor.

DAY 268: Doing What Matters Most

This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them—for this is their lot.   ~Ecclesiastes 5:18

Men become wise in spirit when they stop focusing on what they do for a living and start focusing on why they do anything. 

Worry less about whether you have the right or wrong career path. Instead, keep your eyes on serving God no matter what you do.  This is how you find that elusive contentment and happiness that every man seeks.  

Finding God's purpose for your life makes whatever you do... matter.
