How to Succeed, Schedule Your Time wisely to get Tasks Done!

Proverbs 3:28, “Don’t say, comeback tomorrow, and then I’ll help you.”  Do not put off what you can do today for tomorrow.  When a task needs to be done, get it done.  You should always schedule your time wisely.  Your daily schedule should only have 2 to 3 tasks to complete each day.  If you have too much on “your plate”, you won’t be able to get anything done.

Do not be afraid to ask for help from others.  Sometimes asking for help will ensure that you get tasks done on time.  Jesus had disciples who assisted Him with the spreading of the “gospel of God” to the world.  The most successful individuals in the world are those who have teams to assist them with their tasks.

What are you waiting for?  It is time for you to get busy.  Get your weekly schedule in order, try to do only 2 to 3 tasks per day, and do not fret if a task cannot be completed in one day.  Please do not be afraid to ask for assistance from others when you need it.  Setting a schedule and having a team of helpers will ensure that you spend your time wisely.  Plus, you will be able to get your tasks completed in an efficient manner.

How to Succeed, Make a Difference!

Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  Hebrews 11:3, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were formed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please God.”

We all have a way where we can impact the world.  Some people can impact the world on a large scale and others can do so on a smaller scale.  God has taught us that we must be willing to spread His love and His message to the world.  You must have the faith to know that you can bring others to God.  Do not be afraid of the message because God will give you what to say.  Just be willing to let God lead you, guide you, and use you to get His message of salvation to those who need it.

By faith, many of God’s believers were able to fulfill the tasks He asked them to complete.  You must have the faith of a “mustard seed” to understand how God can use you as a tool to further His agenda.  By faith, you can achieve whatever God commands you to do.

Thriving as a Female Entrepreneur in the 21st Century! (Part II)

I John 4:4, “God’s Spirit who is in you, is greater than the devil, who is in the world.”  Women entrepreneurs cannot allow “fear of the unknown to control their life.”  They must understand the concept of “going out on faith” when it comes to starting a business.  Also, must “go out on faith” when making major decisions for the growth and prosperity of the business.  To all women out there who have this deep desire to start their own business, go for it and stop making excuses.  The most successful business women are those who have a “spirit of fearlessness”.  They are not afraid to take risks, they are spiritually balanced, and have much faith in themselves.  These type of women will throw caution to the wind and start their own business.  Successful female entrepreneurs understand the importance of seeing each failure as a lesson learned.  They see each failure as a tool or resource to improve their small business.

Successful female entrepreneurs do not allow self-doubt or past failures hold them back.  With a strong spiritual base, successful female entrepreneurs have made it through the storms to make it based on their own meaning of “true success”.  Aspiring female entrepreneurs must understand that God did not give you a “spirit of fear”, but a “spirit of courage”.

How to Succeed, Give God His Share!

God expects us to give 10% of our earnings in tithes each Sabbath Day.  God expects us to love and be kind to each other.  God expects us as Christians to bring troubled souls to His kingdom to be delivered and saved.  As much as God gives to us, He does not expect much in return.  God just wants us to be obedient to His Word and His Commandments.

Sometimes we as Christians fail to do as God commands.  We go to church diligently and regularly, but our heart is not in it.  We pay our tithes, but only give what we want to give and not the 10% asked by God.  We fail to spend quality time with God to build a strong personal relationship with God.

In summary, as the Bible states “We do what is pleasing in the Lord’s sight, but not wholeheartedly.” 2 Chronicles 25:2.  Apostle Paul states how to be a cheerful giver and cheerful child of God.  “I want each of you to take plenty of time to think it over, and make up your own mind what you will give: that will protect you against sob stories and arm-twisting.  God loves it when the giver delights in giving.  God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways, so that you’re ready for anything and everything, more than just ready to do what needs to be done.  As one psalmist puts it, ‘He throws caution to the winds, giving to the need in reckless abandon.  His right living and right giving ways never run out, nor wear out.’  The most generous God who gives seed to the farmer that becomes bread for your meals is more than extravagant with you.  He gives you something you can then give away, which grows into full-formed lives, robust in God, wealthy in every way, so that you can be generous in every way, producing great praise for God.” 2 Cor. 9:6-11 Source: Kingdom Worship Center Daily Devotional December 17, 2015.

WHAT ARE YOU HEARING

Church is for healing.

GRAVITY OF GRACE

e14bfd323fd344_2f_9_76efb21b-postWhen you consider the gospel or the good news, its suppose to be good, right? The good news is not a bad news, showcasing all your mistakes and  how miserable your life is. Its about what Christ has done irrespective of our effort. Its the power of God unto salvation ( Safety, healing, forgiveness, well-being, peace and prosperity) For some reason, the gospel has become a mixture of more bad news and a little good news.

The gospel tells you this; “yes there is sickness in the world, there is pain, chaos and misfortunes, but you have already overcome the power of the wicked through Christ”. “You are no more looking at life from the window of trying hard to get healing or to walk out of pain. In Christ you are already healed through His stripes. This is the so good to be true news, that emphasize on what is…

The Power of Never Quitting

Wonderful story.

Morning Story and Dilbert

Morning Story and Dilbert Vintage Dilbert
May 14, 1994

A young boy six years old lost his sight. He was so scared. He was in total darkness. He felt lost, alone and totally abandoned. He was overwhelmed. An already dismal life now looked extremely bleak…dead ended. His mother tried to encourage and console him, but nothing she said could overcome his fear. The fear of the unknown kept him in a state of terror.

As the young boy was lying in bed one morning and refused to get up, his mother, searching for words, made a statement that he would grab on to and change his life forever. She said, “Son, you have lost your sight and nothing can change that. There are things you can’t do. But there are lots of things you can do. You have a creative mind. Find something you enjoy and stick with it, no matter what.”

How to Succeed, How to Accomplish Great Things in Business!

To make a business successful, you have to write out a plan of how the business will run.  Some individuals believe that business plans are obsolete.  But in reality, you cannot have a business without writing out some plan of action.  It is advisable to seek assistance from others when starting a business.  Before I do anything concerning my business, I seek guidance from God, my mentor, and accountability partners.  Before making any major decisions concerning your business, it is good to create an action plan and put it in writing.  Also, you should pray to God about any major decisions concerning your business.

Nehemiah 2:20, “The God of heaven will give us success…, but as for you, you will have no share in Jerusalem or any claim….to it.”  Not everyone will be happy with you starting your own business.  Many people will try to deter you from reaching your dream of being an entrepreneur.  Sometimes you will be your own worst enemy when it comes to being a small business owner.  Many people mean well, but don’t realize the harm they cause when they try to deter a person from starting a business.  Sometimes due to their own failures at starting a business, family and friends may feel that you will suffer the same fate.  But, you must be prepared for the naysayers when starting a new business.  You cannot allow anyone to stop you from becoming an entrepreneur.

You have to prepare to fight for what you want in life.  You will make a lot of sacrifices to start a business.  You will have to put in the time, the effort, and the money to ensure that your business is successful.  There will be times when you want to give up, but you can’t give up.  You will always have to revise your business plans and business ideas to learn ways to generate income from your business.

Never give up on your dreams to become an entrepreneur because God will never give up on you.

How to Succeed, How to Accomplish Great Things in Life?

Nehemiah, a character from the Old Testament of the Bible, clearly shows how determination and will power can take someone a long way.  Nehemiah re-built the Wall of Jerusalem in 52 days because of his will power and determination.  No one can tell you that something cannot be done.  Only God can do that.  If God gives you something to complete, you must believe that you can do it.  God will give you all the tools and resources needed to complete the task.  God gives each of us a “call to action” in life.  We must be willing to accomplish our “calls to action.”

You must pray to God to ask for assistance for certain God-given tasks.  When you pray to God for guidance, you will receive favor from Him.  God will provide you with the right tools, resources, and people to complete your God-given tasks.  Never underestimate the power of God.  God will provide you with what you need to accomplish your God-given tasks.  If you approach the task with faith, God will open doors for you that were once closed.  God will place people in your lives that you least expect to receive help from.  Accept assistance from God, without complaining to accomplish great things in your life.

Ecc. 11:4, “Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks at the clouds will not reap.”  “If you wait for the perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.” (New International Bible Translation).  You have to get moving if you want to fulfill your dreams or goals.  You cannot wait for the perfect timing, the right people, or perfect circumstances.  Also, God will only do something, if He sees you in action.  Don’t allow anything to deter you from your God-given destiny.  God has called you to do something and it is now time to act on that calling.

How to Succeed: Give God the “First fruits” of your Time!

Ezekiel 20:40, “I require…the first fruits and the choicest of your contribution.”  Good prayer to start each day with, “Lord each hour of this day, I’m depending on you.  Let my words, my attitude, my decisions, and my actions bring glory to you.”  Each morning you should give God your time before doing anything else.  It is good to spend quality time with God every morning.  Spending time with God in the morning can assist you with preparing for the day that lays ahead.  Giving God “His time” is essential for getting closer to Him.  I try to make time for God each morning and in the evening before bed.

God wants the “first fruits” of your time dedicated to Him.  Spending this time with God lets Him know that you consider Him your No. 1 priority.  Giving God your individual attention ensures that you maintain a close relationship with Him.  Also, ensures that you are prepared for your day.

Give God your “first fruits” in your time, your service, and your contributions.  God loves it when His children gives Him their “first fruits”.
