In my business I use this CRM (customer relationship manager) called Infusionsoft. It’s a contact manager, pipeline manager, e-commerce store manager, AND email marketing manager. Oh, and did I mention that it does automated drip marketing and fulfillment too?
COMPLICATED is an understatement. I still get overwhelmed when they come out with new stuff. Just purchasing this system took months of deliberating and planning because it was so highly complex.
The more complex the thing seems, the more resistance we have to getting started. Even though the packaging promises that it’s going to save you thousands of hours (and thus dollars) if we implement it, we still have trouble making the decision and diving in.
And once we’ve purchased it, sometimes we get overwhelmed that was just quit….another waste of money on a product or service I just couldn’t commit to getting to know and trust.
If we can be honest with each other, we do the same thing with God.
We know He’s good for business, for our life, for everything! But sometimes it can seem so complicated, such a commitment, so much to learn and know and do!
We quit, we stop daily reading, we don’t pray every meal, we stop trusting, and next thing we know, we’re off track.
Here’s God’s promise in Psalm 91:14-16
“If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God , “I’ll get you out of any trouble. I’ll give you the best of care if you’ll only get to know and trust me [my emphasis]. Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times; I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party. I’ll give you a long life, give you a long drink of salvation!”
This Infusionsoft program I use is a MIRACLE MAKER for my sales and marketing. It does deliver on everything it promises, but only if I commit to getting to know it, use it, and apply it in my business. I’ve had it for 6 years now and I wouldn’t be able to operate with out.
That’s the same with God and bringing Him into my business. He has worked wonders beyond my imagination!
It was all because I got to know and trust God. This commitment of building a relationship with Him daily and applying biblical principles in my business has made all the difference in my ability to REST in His presence, during good times and bad.
Godpreneurs, if you’ll see God the same way you see a big investment in machinery or software in your business, you’ll be able to reap amazing benefits from the promises God has in store for you.
Imagine if we all committed to getting to know God better and pulling the trigger of letting Him fully into every fabric of our businesses?!
