Eternal Principles:

  • Put God first by keeping worship central
  • Create time to review your life before it is forced on you by circumstance
  • Work is primarily about worship, not promotion, profile, product or reward
  • Place your hope in God – he does not change
  • Keep a short account of sin
  • GOD blesses obedience and availability
  • God keeps his promises
  • God doesn’t always do things the way we expect



  • What might you need to review in your life at the moment?
  • How might you create space and time for that review?
  • Who might help you in that review process?
  • How might your working life be changed if you were more aware that it is an act of worship?
  • What promises are you carrying from God?
  • Where are you carrying disappointment about those promises?
  • Be open and honest about disappointment, how do we keep hold of faith whilst also being real about our disappointments?
