Matthew 11: 28-30 (MSG)
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on (business)? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Life can literally take so much out of you, you have nothing left for even yourself. Being a military spouse, mom of 3 AND entrepreneur, REST almost seems like it NEVER HAPPENS or I don’t get ENOUGH of it, because of feeling burnt out, I’ve learned along the way that God has a certain way of doing things and following HIS ways are easy and light. On the flip side of that it’s different. The world is saying you have to work 24 hours in the first couple of years in business to get your business up and running, you have to hustle to get those customers, clients, etc.
In God’s kingdom, you don’t have to do that, it’s really spending time in HIS presence, HIS word and HIS direction on what HE wants you to do in your business. I’ve learned that I HAVE to have my time with HIM before the day starts, from there, is when I get direction on what HE wants me to do. He may tell me, JUST spend time with your daughter, or clean up your work area, or clean up the garage, OR go to that network meeting that meets in the afternoon. The main idea here is that God is leading me, I’m not controlling it myself, God is, that lesson right there for me, took a HUGE LOAD off my shoulders, back AND hips.
I applied this scripture in my life and business and it has led me to some AMAZING opportunities for my business that I’m looking forward to seeing bigger and better things in 2015!
