As a business owner I’ve learned the importance of diligence and what it truly means to be consistent.
When I worked in corporate America I was faithful in getting up and going to work every single day, five, sometimes six, days a week depending on the season. I had to get up every day at 6 o’clock to leave my home by 6:45 am to get to work by 7. I dreaded leaving my children each morning but I knew if I wanted to keep all four of them in private I had to go to work. I enjoyed the work but I didn’t like my hours. I had a great boss. He and I had an excellent rapport.
For twelve consecutive years I traveled to work working on a job that prevented me from taping into my great potential and discovering my gifts and talents. Oftentimes when we are forced into a situation we don’t want to be in we miss out on such much because it seems like our hands are tied, and our brain is not being fully utilized if that makes any sense at all. Even though the place that employed me taught me some of the most amazing lessons in my life through the people I encountered, connected and interacted with on a daily basis I was still missing something in my life as well as in my career because I was super unhappy working for someone else and right before I walked away from that 9-5 as program coordinator I began to discover that I was this phenomenal creative being who wanted so much more for my family and myself.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for. The evidence of things not seen.
God’s word is truly phenomenal and awesome.
Growing up in a loving and nurturing home with my mother, father and four siblings, I attended Sunday School and church just about every Sunday. I always enjoyed walking to Sunday School with my neighbors. We had such a good time and I looked forward to going to the candy store before our feet ever entered into the church doors.
I began learning about faith through the reading of God’s word and from a friend who had written an extensive article on “Believe and Receive.” Her article was just what I needed to help me to grow my typing and now, design business all because my faith in God has deepened. I now know what it means to simply trust in God!
I Began my Journey with Faith in Tow and Soared to my Destination!
My faith has:
- Given me confidence I never knew I could have
- It has taught me to be bold
- It has taught me to be courageous
- It has taught me to not be afraid to do things
- It has taught me to be obedient to do God.
- It has taught me to do whatever it is God tells me to do because I know He’s going to equip me with the tools I need.
- It has taught me that I don’t have to do things I don’t want to do just because others expect me to.
My faith has blessed me and my business abundantly and now I live a prosperous life; not because I am financially wealthy, but because I am spiritually rich!
