Recently, I was thinking about my business and how best I should deal with the many competitions around me and the things that I need to understand and take along with me on this journey of making my business a success. The points below are what I came up with which I think will help me in months and years to come in having a successful business. So, I thought to share these with anyone who may be dealing with competition in an industry or workplace.
God’s ways are never our ways and His thoughts not our thoughts. When we think we can own the reins of our lives we quickly become weary and tired when things don’t go our way. Well, that may be because that is not God’s plan for our lives.
We must learn at all times to trust God’s process no matter how slow it may be. It’s better to be slow and long-lasting than quick but short-lived.
Love this song. Hope it ministers to you as it did me.
One thing I have learned over time as a Christian is never to look back and regret where I am now based on where I’m coming from. This feeling of regret often set in when we believe we should have achieved more than we have already accomplished.
This song has for many years have a way of helping me to remember why I gave my life to Christ in the first place. Why you may ask? Because I love God and everything about Him. His love has changed me and has made me who I am today and even more, His love brings out the best of me and helps me look at life from a great perspective. Most of the things we offer Him are not what He requires. All He wants is for our hearts to worship Him. My heart. Your heart!
Very lately, I have been so busy with juggling my job with maternal and wifely duties topped with building a business that I believe that my relationship with God has not been at a place where I would want it to be. Prayer time has become rushed, taking the time to study God’s Word has become a rarity and please don’t even mention a nice quiet time with my loving Father. Our everyday lives are so boxed with too many things on our ‘to-do’ list, many errands to run, many meetings to attend, many goals to accomplish, kids to take care of, business that requires your attention to grow, career that needs you to fly, family that needs you to be an active and not a passive part of their lives and the list is inevitably endless. Now, most of these things are not in themselves bad or sinful, in fact, most if not all of the things we do or pursue to achieve are all good things.
I recently came across the photo below where someone was using a pair of trainers to perform ballet in the midst of other ballerinas using ballet pumps. I literally fell in love with this photo and just wondered who this genius could be. What really got me intrigued is the fact that someone dared to be different. This person did not allow what she didn’t have to stop her from becoming what she wants to be or do what she wants to do. Even more importantly, she didn’t allow people’s criticisms to stop her from being who she is.
