Effort Has Purpose

A few thoughts from Chuck Proudfit with the Marketplace Minute™ . . .I’ve had times at work when it seemed like I was using my talents for nothing.  I’d put out my best effort, but few results seemed to come back.  It was discouraging, and I’d wonder if something was out of sorts with me. How comforting it was to read this scripture from the famous prophet Isaiah, Isaiah 49:4, when he struggled with it, saying . . . “I have labored to no purpose; I have spent my strength in vain and for…See More

Desire in the Desert

A few thoughts from Chuck Proudfit with the Marketplace Minute™ . . .God sometimes uses the desert experience to get our undivided attention.  It’s a good thing, too, because most of us have a lot of trouble paying attention.We don’t need sand and camels to find ourselves in a desert season at work.  It could be a time when we find ourselves unemployed, or seemingly trapped in a dead-end job.Hosea 2:14 says “I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her” . . . it alludes to the idea…See More

Courage to Come Close

A few thoughts from Chuck Proudfit with the Marketplace Minute™ . . .“The people remained at a distance, while Moses approached the thick darkness where God was.”  This scripture in Exodus 20:21 paints a powerful picture of the hunger Moses had to know God personally, even when it meant overcoming the fear of the unknown. How many times have you held back from a divine encounter?  It can seem unbelievable that God would want to spend time with each one of us, but that’s the way it is.  God…See More

Defining Purpose: DISCERN God’s will for our work

A few thoughts from Chuck Proudfit with the Marketplace Minute™ . . .It’s hard to discern God’s will for our work when we aren’t tuned in to his direction.  When we get discouraged or distracted, we can tune God out.  This is the absolute worst thing to do! God’s voice is never more important to hear than when we have a pressing need to hear it.  We’re limited in our ability to communicate, but God isn’t.  As scripture reminds us in John 8:47 . . . “He who belongs to God hears what God says. …See More

The Focus Factor

A few thoughts from Chuck Proudfit with the Marketplace Minute™ . . .Does work life sometimes seem like a spiritual maze, where you’re looking for purposeful direction but consistently coming up with blind alleys and dead ends?  This isn’t God’s design – it’s our typical “trial and error” approach to understanding His will. When we journey with God, we can’t stay where we are.  God always wants to develop us.  He desires a deep relationship with us.  He wants an ongoing dialogue with us about…See More

Adversity for Advantage

A few thoughts from Chuck Proudfit with the Marketplace Minute™ . . .There have been many times in my work life where everything seemed to be going wrong, and I couldn’t understand God’s purpose in it.  Not only that, the harder I tried to “fix” things, the worse they seemed to get.  Yet, I would look back months or years later, discovering retrospectively that those painful work experiences were actually helpful! Scripture speaks to this in 2 Corinthians 1:6 . . . “If we are distressed, it is…See More

Defining Purpose: ASK for God’s guidance

Relationship Comes FirstA few thoughts from Chuck Proudfit with the Marketplace Minute™ . . . You know, sometimes we can be so frustrated with our work, everything from surviving relentless demands to finding the perfect position, that we can forget to put work into context. My friend, God didn’t create us to live for work.  He created us to live with Him, in a close and candid relationship. If you’ve lost motivation in a job, or perhaps even lost your job entirely, that doesn’t mean you’ve…See More

Defining Purpose: Finding God’s Will for Our Work

Calling versus CareerA few thoughts from Chuck Proudfit with the Marketplace Minute™ . . . Have you ever felt like your work doesn’t matter to God?  That the only way to do real ministry is to leave the marketplace and find employment at a local church or charity? We can forget that ALL work is a form of worship and a path to ministry.  In the Book of Genesis, the first thing God did for Adam, before the Fall, was to give him a job. Fulfilling God’s purpose for our work is an important part of…See More
