What Works....

I have been told that I say and do a  lot. I do so much that people just don't pay attention to what I do because it IS SO MUCH.

I really want to tell you: THATS A COP OUT.

I mean if you really want to support someone in what they do, even if not all they do, you will do it. Who cares if they run 8 part time businesses and are good at them all. Do you feel better saying it's too much to keep up with so I don't support any of it? Or, if you put yourself aside, can you say there is one thing in this rat race my friend calls business that I find useful for me?

My point is (not going back to being a victim) is that what works for you may not be what works for someone else. What God wants YOU to do may not be what God wants someone else to do. NO, God isn't saying run a rat race;don't be judge or jury for God.

The part about life that some people forget is that YOU are not the dreamer in someone else's bed. You are the dreamer AND visionary in your own. God gave you a certain vision that takes place in your life; what works for YOU. With that the ministry that you have in YOUR business will help others and give God all the glory. There is something called obedience that takes you further and helps you make it. OBEDIENCE...not time..not frustration (shouldn't be any frustration in obedience)

I support a lot of people, as long as it doesn't take me away from my spiritual self. I want that same support in return, but if it doesn't happen, it doesn't change me. Live the life; do the business/ministry; be obedient and give God the glory....

What works for you won't work for others, but the prayers, results and obedience are going to the same GOD!

Dana, you are so right. We are all individuals and the philosophy's of one do not necessarily apply to all. We each have to look within ourselves and ask the question, is this a fit for me or am I being a follower rather than a leader?
Make it an awesome day!
