Can you be a Christian AND career-driven woman?

Philippians 4:19:

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.


We gathered and heard amazing words from our guest speaker. A few things she mentioned puts so much in perspective and makes us realise something important:

Being a Christian in the work place doesn’t always get the right response. They’re watching you and waiting for you to mess up. Being a Christian means that you are a human being, and you are not perfect. You have a relationship with Jesus, and you understand that you will be forgiven once you realise your mistakes by asking for forgiveness. Because people work with you and spend a lot of time with you they will see your flaws – and that’s okay.

 


Ephesians 2:10:

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

ALWAYS KNOW YOUR WHY.

Find your purpose through focusing and not getting so caught up by everything happening around you.

Apologies for shortage of notes, we were just so DEEP into the word!! 

To finish the meeting after an amazing message from our guest speaker, we broke up into little groups and discussed a scenario-based exercise which are below. Talk through it with your girls and see what Godly advice they would also give!

 

  1. Mary has upcoming law exams and chooses to miss church on Sundays for revision. Is this restricting her spiritual growth?

2. Susan works with atheists and feels guilty for not ever being able to evangelise. She spends 80 hours a week at work. With what little time she has with herself and family, what can she do to spread the word of God?

3. Jessica is on a six figure salary and is extremely hard-working in her job as a banker. She meets a wonderful gentleman – also a Christian, and later finds out he is a road sweeper and happy to remain as one. She is immediately shocked and worried. What would you advise her?

4. Sophie feels her marriage falling apart due to always choosing work over social life and family time. She finds it hard to find balance. How can she better manage her time and save her marriage?
