When I offer my struggles in business to God, it removes it from contaminating my mind and opens me up to receive the solution. In the torment of pain, I choose to spend my emotional energy and mental capacity on thinking logically. I need to pass this off in order of move on.
I used to see logos and websites as a transaction I made with my clients. Now it takes on a whole different meaning and beauty because of my purpose.
We Godpreneurs have the amazing privilege to be used by God to impact our clients and employees in a way that many of them need to be impacted...By a God that wants a relationship with them too so they can, in turn, do the same.
Maybe you feel that way about certain employees or clients that have done something wrong in your book. Despite the circumstances, you must choose to keep trusting and loving the people around you because you never know when and where you will meet and need each other.
Imagine if Godpreneurs looked at their suffering as the exact tool God is using to shape our identity. Our suggesting will light fires in our business lives, and that fire could either burn us to the ground or be contained within a lamp and put out to display for the whole world to see and use.
Imagine if we all were living out our gifts the way God designed it for each of us. Imagine the picture of a perfect body working in unison. That's when great partnerships can form, joint ventures can thrive, and God's full glory of gifting can be revealed.
As we set out to rewrite our eulogies, I want to invite you on a journey of discovering what you were born to do, and bringing that vision to life.
You won't know God's full reasoning immediately, and you may never know it until you're face to face with Him. Until then, we are called to know and understand that suffering is a path we must walk in the marketplace to get to the place God needs us for His will.
We all have the same choice: we can keep looking at the service or product we offer as a means to an end (money in the bank) or we can see the same offerings through God's bigger purpose and let that drive us to continue to innovate and offer the best solutions that God (through you) has to offer.
We Godpreneurs can't let fear distract us from living a life in God's full will. He needs us in order to impact the business world. He needs our minds and hearts in the right places: focused on the marketplace mission field he has you on right now, no matter how insignificant we may think it is.
