This whole year as been such a different mind shift for me. A shift in my thinking, how I do things, even how I’m going into 2016 as an entrepreneur. Being an entrepreneur is more than doing whatever I want to do in my business, waking up whenever I want to, taking vacations and playing with my kids whenever I want.
When I wrote my book S.M.A.R.T. Goals for the Christian Entrepreneur, I talked about the process God took me through to get to where I am now. Turley experiencing what it means to live FREE as an entrepreneur. I finished writing about completing my goals for 2015 and getting ready to prepare for 2016.
For re-defining freedom as an entrepreneur is really trusting God in my business. Allowing Him to be God in my life, getting into His presence and experiencing His peace, love and wisdom in my life and business.
I’m walking in total FREEDOM. His word says in Psalm 119:45-“I walk about in FREEDOM because I have sought out your word.” the word also says in 2 Corinthians 3:17-“…Where the spirit of the Lord is there’s FREEDOM.” When you truly walk in His ways, seek Him First (Matthew 6:33) and Allow God to be God in your life and business, you will to walk in freedom.
Like, I stated in the previous paragraphs you can do whatever you want, come and go as you please but in building a business, when there is still work to be done. Doing the work, Stressing about money or feeling like a failure is the stress that comes with working a business, but when you do it God’s way, when you allow God to be God in your business, the responsiblity is on God to what His word says. Your responsibility to find out what His word says concerning you and the business He’s called you to.
The beginning of this year, I wrote about the Weariness of being an entrepreneur and Surviving the dark nights as an entrepreneur and how it can sometimes be depressing. What I’m trying to share with you guys is that you don’t have to have EVERYTHING figured out in your business, or your 3 to 5 year plan for your business, It’s all about what Is God doing in this season of your life and business and walk THAT out instead of what is the typical thing to do in your business industry. I also wrote a blog post called: Shall I pursue? and it’s about the story of David seeking God first before going based on his feelings, strengths and abilities. I share what happens when he gets instructions from God on what to do next, David was blessed!
In Conclusion, I’m walking in Freedom, because I know, I don’t have to have everything planned when God is the CEO of my business, I’m following His orders and strategies and not looking to what everyone else is doing.
What Is God doing in this season of your life and business?
