God’s Faithfulness While Building Your Family Empire
A 3-Day Devotional For Married Entrepreneurs
The Pivot Point
O.L.: About three years into our journey as full-time married entrepreneurs, God called us out of our comfort zones into deeper waters of trusting Him. He instructed us to move out of our home in 7 days, rented to a new tenant and flew to the East Coast as instructed to live with family… now what? LOL
Sway: To give context, when God told us to move, we initially did not know where we were supposed to go but we were willing. We would end up flying back and forth from Dallas to the NY area every few months or so for business for a little over two years. Finally, we settled in New Jersey and listened for next steps. Little did we know God positioned us to begin pastoring in a local church while still building ‘tents’.
O.L. He explained that because of our radical obedience, He would show His radical goodness towards us. He opened massive doors for my Real Estate and our Consulting companies shortly after.
Here’s the lesson we want to share with you today:
Lean not to your own understanding but in ALL your ways acknowledge Him and He will ALWAYS make your path straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
This journey is far from over, but it is our duty and responsibility to encourage, edify and strengthen others on this faith journey. We don’t HAVE to have all of the answers, but we DO need to trust His Word and promises for our lives and work.
Lord, I thank you for your grace and the entrepreneurial vision you have given our family. Help us to steward the vision well by honoring You through obedience and always acknowledging You first. Help us to discern when a season is changing and when it’s time shift to what You have next. Our trust is solely in You and Your unfailing love for me.
