Now that I’ve found my calling in business, there are a couple of things I do to continue to fine tune and cultivate it.
Living within my calling is now a lifestyle for me. I’ve changed habits and adopted new ones in order to continue to hear from God. The visions of where God wants me to go are constantly flowing, the spirit is always guiding, and I need to stay alert.
As I continue my journey, here are the two major ways I continue to seek God’s will for my business.
Draw Closer to God
I have practices that I follow in order to stay connected to God. It’s one thing to discover what you’re born to do, it’s another thing to walk down that journey towards the finish line. God gave me the vision and will also be the lamp at my feet to guide me.
The bible says
The Sovereign Lord has opened my ears; I have not been rebellious, I have not turned away.
Isaiah 50:5 NIV
Reading my bible every morning and blogging to you is one great way I stay connected. I’m also trying to get better at praying, resting, teaching bible studies and going on short term missions each year.
There are tons of ways for us to draw closer to God, these are personal to me. People connect with God in a wide variety of ways; so don’t be discouraged if your primary mode isn’t listed here, or if you haven’t yet discovered how you best connect with God.
A Community of Entrepreneurs
I’m also in the habit of meeting with a community of Entrepreneurs. I have a close group of friends that meet several times a year at Panera bread to check up on goals. I also participate in Mastermind groups. I’m also attending monthly entreprenurial workshops to refine my skills.
The bible says
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hebrews 10:24-25 NIV
Church is also a great place to meet with other Christian Entrepreneurs. God will use anyone you’re in community with to speak and guide. My calling is best nourished in the body of Christ, not in isolation.
Invest in Resources
I continue to invest time and money into growing as a business owner.
I love a new app called Blinking. I get to have a 15 minute snapshot of the top business books out there. I’m also an avid Audible book listener. I find listening to books the best for me to digest massive amounts of content.
- have a prepared heart to hear from God and follow his leading
- invite God to speak in our lives
- connect with fellow Godpreneurs to build each other up
