Whatever my business, God’s gifts enable me to work for the common good, to find more contentment in my work, and/or to overcome or endure the negative aspects of my business situation.
Paying too much attention to the gifts you already have can keep you from receiving the gifts God wants to give you. This is one reason why people get stuck and don't launch their business: feeling unfit to be an entrepreneur.
Our calling is primarily about our identity. And that is not usually the answer people are looking for when they ask, “What is my calling?” Usually, people want to know, “What business should I do? What product or service should I offer? What skill, what capacity, what gift might be distinctly mine?”
My secret to finally making the decision to stop doing business my way and start doing the business I was born to do was discovering what I really LOVED about my business, and focusing in on that.
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 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.
