A silhouette of a young Christian woman is bowing her head in prayer, and desperation outside during sunset.

I read a lot of motivational books, attend personal development seminars, and watch successful entrepreneurship videos.  Can’t I admit….its all a bit frustrating sometimes.  I know what I need to do, I’m pumped when I learn something new, but if I only had the TIME to implement it all.

Wanting to implement everything I learn leaves me more frustrated because I know it takes time…time that I’ve convinced myself I don’t have.

We can take the lessons from the last 4 posts on Overcoming Busyness in Business and get the same feeling.  Yeah, this all sounds awesome Alex, but its another thing on my ‘to do to be perfect’ list.

Can I share something deeply impacting that I’ve learned over the last year:  God didn’t intend for us to be a ‘solopreneurs’.  He never wanted us to walk this journey on our own.  Instead, its made difficult on purpose – so we always rely on His help

Philippians 4:6-7 says

Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.

God wants us to
1) Not worry, and instead
2) Pray and ask God for help
3) Praise God for all he is, has done, is doing, and will do in your life.

When God is our CEO, its not just to bark down commands to you.  CEO’s help their people grow, find solutions, work in the background to get things done.  That’s the ‘boss’ you work for!  He wants to partner with your success.

When we develop our prayer life to God and lay down our wants and desires to grow into better Godpreneurs, God honors that and see our hearts are in the right place.  Your big growth is coming, in Jesus name!

Let me pray for you:
Dear God I thank you for the gift of entrepreneurship you’ve given us.  You’re the best boss we’ve ever had and we just want to please you.  Help us to overcome the lies of Busyness that can hurt our families, our bodies and our businesses.  We know we have a lot of work to do, so at this time we bring that to you, lay it at your feet, and trust that you will inspire us to bring the change you so desire for our hearts and minds to be the best Godpreneurs we can be.  In Jesus name!
