The Worker is Worthy of Their Hire

employmentDr Luke in his book that bears his name, mentions a time when Jesus was sending out His disciples to do the work of the ministry.  He was explaining what not to take with them and how to rely on God’s provision for them via those they would stay with in each village they would pass through.  At one point he shares the famous phrase, “. . . for the labourer is worthy of his hire.”  In Proverbs, the farmer is urged not to muzzle the ox, but to let it nibble at the corn it threshes.

In the same way today, singers, pastors, teachers, authors, musicians, actors, and artists all work hard to get the message out that God gives them and earn enough to pay the bills while they are at it.

For myself, God has gifted me with the ability to troubleshoot and fix computers, write, sing, coordinate, organize  and teach.  The last two entries in that list are motivational giftings as I seek to go about life in an organized manner and find joy in helping others learn something new.  This comes out in how I organized the content of my series, “Becoming the Bride of Christ: A Personal Journey”, the kinds of advice tidbits that made it into my grad gift, “Mom’s Little Black Book: Godly Advice for the Highschool Graduate”, and in how I present the content in my latest book, “Dressed for Eternity”.  Even my tiny ebook, “Practical Thoughts on Becoming an Author” is laid out in a manner aiming to help the aspiring author get into print.

For the past few months while I have been keeping life at a low-key level to heal up from adrenal fatigue, I’ve been working part-time at a realtor’s office as an unlicensed realtor’s assistant.  I am not trained as a realtor’s assistant in any way, and it’s been a challenge to apply what I know of basic secretarial/receptionist and even my tech skills to his particular needs.  As of this afternoon, (Friday Feb 14th), I have been laid off and am looking to dig up work again while seeking to increase sales of my books.  The following list is a shortened list of where you can find my books in both paperback and digital form.  The stores in this list all pay either immediately, or monthly regardless of balance.  So any purchases from this particular list will help me out more immediately than other locations that didn’t make it on this list.  In addition, my latest book, “Dressed for Eternity” is cheaper at these locations than the others as well, which helps us both out.  You get my latest book at a savings of roughly $20 – $30, and you help me out in the process.

https://play.google.com/store/search?q=Ms.%20Marilynn%20Dawson&c=books – minus “A Guide to English Grammar” which I didn’t write, so why it comes up under a search for me, I’m not sure.

I mentioned earlier that I am also a computer tech.  That website is http://fa-ct.com, and the remote support button will be going live Monday to Friday between the time frames of 9am and 4pm Pacific Standard Time.  Any time the button is NOT live during those hours will be due to me being out on a call in my local area.  If my writing and my tech support services begin to earn enough to pay March’s rent, then I will continue to work for myself.  However if I can’t pay March’s rent, I’ll be scrambling for employment for someone else again.  You can guess which form of employment I’d prefer.

Across the top of this website, you’ll see a link that says “Other Services”.  Clicking that will show you what writing services I also offer, and a link to my tech website for writing services related to my own business.

So if you’d like to help me out, you can do so by: a) purchasing my books, b) sending tech support calls my way, c) making use of my writing services, and d) telling others about these things as well so they can make use of them.  God bless you as you use your purchasing power to support your brothers and sisters in Christ.
