God First!

God First!

Starting the day with God comes with a lot of stillness and calm. It helps us focus and redirect our thoughts to the right things. Putting God first grounds our thoughts and helps us set the day with intentionality and purpose.

Rachael McCants of R.Lindsay Unlimited says that as entrepreneurs, many times we are not under any pressure to go about our daily operations using schedules but starting the day with God is one way we can focus and align ourselves with the right things during the day.

It is not every day that our usual activities go according to plan.  However, finding God’s voice in the midst of unpleasant situations is what grounds us. God uses all our experiences to help and direct us toward finding our purpose. No matter what we go through we should always remember to start our days with God because it is during the toughest of times that He shines the brightest.

We may not be too thrilled or excited with the process of finding our purpose but stopping every morning to listen to God’s voice helps us work towards the purpose God set for us. It is during the times when we feel like we are going through tough times that we need to take time and rest in God’s peace. We need not be too occupied with what is happening around us but redirect our attention toward God.

Starting the day by committing it to God helps us realize that with every task that is ahead of us, He is already working for our good. It helps us see that He is in control of every situation and we need not worry about anything. God is the source of everything. Everything else is a resource.

We are not too busy to start our days with God. We should form a habit of always taking time to listen to God’s voice and everything else will fall into place without struggle.

The Modern Proverbs 31 Women

The Modern Proverbs 31 Women

We live in an age where we compare ourselves to the Proverbs 31 superwoman. This, however, can somewhat make us feel inadequate.

When we read about the Proverbs 31 woman, we are told about how hardworking and diligent she was. An image of perfection, working to take care of her family and running a business all with a smile on her face.  We all want to be this woman so we keep comparing ourselves to her without realizing that we live in different times. Instead of focusing on how overwhelming it is to measure up to her, we should look at her as an excellent biblical description of what women can do.

Modern Women need to understand that we have separate tasks given by God, but still equal and certainly just as important. For some reason, our society has told us that taking care of a family is not good enough. That we need to make lots of money or manage people to be successful.

But as Christians, we need not listen to those telling us that serving our families is beneath us. We all serve in different capacities and we should always appreciate ourselves for that. It is true to say that the Proverbs 31 Woman does not only apply to married women but to single women as well. One does not have to be married to emulate her. You can still be generous, kind, and work hard no matter the stages you are in life.

As we strive to become Modern Proverbs 31 Women, we should always remember that life is not going to be free of challenges, there are going to be bad days. There are seasons where working or taking care of the family will be exhausting and overwhelming but knowing our purpose as modern women will help us live fulfilling lives just how God wants us to.

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. 1 Chronicles 16:11

Do you REALLY forgive and forget!

Do you REALLY forgive and forget?

Forgive others not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.

As human beings, we are brought up in different backgrounds and we are set on different beliefs from what we are used to. This can make us collide at some point in our day-to-day interactions knowingly or unknowingly.  When misunderstandings occur amongst us, how do we deal with them? What approaches do we use to communicate that our feelings have been hurt or that we don’t agree with the other person’s actions?

Disagreements come with a lot of emotions and assumptions. How we perceive and react to our feelings is largely affected by our levels of stress. Low-stress levels allow us to resonate well with situations but high-stress levels make us react on impulse.  We need to understand that no matter how much we think we are trying, there are people who will always try to find faults in us some of which may or may not be true and this may make us develop grudges and resentment towards them. Even after sorting out the issues at hand, we find ourselves still recalling the hurt. Why is it so difficult to forget after forgiving? This does not only apply to others but ourselves as well.

When we don’t forgive those who hurt us, we end up carrying the pain and hurting others who don’t deserve to be at the receiving end. And also when we don’t forget, we carry what we perceived in the beginning and make a false truth. In order to move on from the pain, we need to forget when we forgive but the forgiveness needs to be done in love.  Forgiving others and ourselves the way that God forgives us fastens our healing and restoration process and we should not allow our perception of criticism whether positive or negative hinder us from achieving this.

Leviticus 19:18″Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.”

Engaging the New Workforce | TAKE A BREATH

Engaging the New Workforce | TAKE A BREATH

Engaging the new workforce is crucial for company development. Janae Willis-Beard says that in today’s society, the workplace is experiencing competing cultures and although differences may occur, we need to learn to understand and embrace each other. The new generation comes with a lot of vocal abilities where they want to see the impact and create change.

When a company gets to a breaking point where they need to move to the next levels engaging a new generation workforce can be the key to unlocking new potential. However, for startups, the best way to get the needed workforce is by partnering with a local university with a strong business school and offers an internship program. This way both the community and the company benefit from the business. It is also good to put into consideration that using local resources to move the company to the next level is quite inexpensive.

Developing a strong internship program for the company exposes the business to different professionals with different levels of knowledge thereby expanding the scope of operations. As we have seen or experienced, many times students successfully graduate from school only to find that there are “no jobs”. Some of whom have the skillset needed to propel the company to greater levels. Mentoring and helping new graduates come into the workplace for experience prevents them from making career mistakes.

As employers looking to benefit from the new workforce, one needs to ensure that hiring is done after the interns have carefully gone through the company’s blueprint and everything they need to be conversant with to ensure successful induction into the company.  Also, before welcoming the new workforce, one should ensure that the company is not in its busy season so that the new employees are comfortable before really going into the job. This way, the new workforce, and companies experience a win-win.

The Power of Purpose

The Power of Purpose

The Power of Purpose guides us towards getting the right direction in our lives. It is what guides us towards the calling we are set for. Different factors propel us towards our purpose including who we are, what our personalities are, why we think the way we do, our communication styles among many other factors which create our identities.

Lorna Mutegi, a director at Mirema Schools tells us about how we were all given special powers before we’re born and that along the way things happen to us that make us doubt our abilities and purpose but we should not give up on ourselves in order to keep touch with our identities.

Before finding your identity, even finding words to describe who you are can be quite a challenge. We however need to remember that God created us as His own and He has a purpose for each of us. That way, we will be able to find ourselves without struggle and conflict.

When we let God take control we will easily align ourselves with our destiny and God’s intended purpose for us. Knowing our identity teaches us to listen and get clear confirmation from God that we are on the right path doing the right thing.

Certain factors can help us find ourselves such as Identity and Purpose courses or Biblical Entrepreneurship courses by Nehemiah Project.

As we try to find our purpose, we need to take time to meditate, pray and seek validation from God, that way along our journey we will be able to establish a strong relationship with Him and ourselves.

Remember, once you find your identity, you’ll find your purpose and once you find your purpose you’ll find your assignment.

The 3 P’s of planning interrupts!

The 3 P’s of planning interrupts!

The 3P’s of planning interrupts. Despite all the plans we tend to always put in place for our lives or our businesses, often enough not everything goes according to how we planned or intended it to be. This may weigh us down and at times make us give up on everything including ourselves.  Wende Jones, Founder of Agile Northwest who is also the Executive Director and Chair of the Christian Chamber of Commerce, takes us through three steps to take when facing redirection.

In the event of planning and creating new ideas, we need to keep in mind that although we expect everything to be better after planning and mapping, God may redirect our steps in the path He thinks is best for us. Why? Because we might be serving new wine in old wineskins!  Although we may think we have everything figured out on our own when facing redirection, we need to trust God to lead us into the path He thinks is best for us.

Surrender everything to God and allow Him to handle things for us. Let him prepare us for the shift to the direction He wants us to go. A change in direction may destabilize our business journey and most of us may want to move on to the next thing but we need to take the time to process our feelings towards the shift. It is ok to grieve and feel frustrated but if we don’t take the time to process, we’ll always be dragged behind. Processing the shift and redirection helps us to welcome healing and clarity to move on.

After processing comes prayer. Listen to God’s voice. Stop trying to pray God into where you want Him to take you. Instead, trust His voice, His redirection. We should allow God to empty us so that He can fill us up with new ideas.  By accepting and changing toward God’s redirection we will get clarity and understand why God encouraged and initiated the shift.
