I’ve had it!
For a while, at least.
My mother’s comment, “I’ve had it with you kids, now be nice or I’m going to get out the paddle if you don’t!” came to mind as I was reading someone’s Facebook wall. There, right in front of my eyes, was a vulgar, racist reference on a new friend’s wall.
That’s why I had had it. I needed a break, but more importantly, I needed a break to do a deep dive into God’s word to refresh my head and replace the mental mush that I was engaged with that was slowing my Godly progress with better stuff.
At issue: Discussions about politics. But reading a few other articles and Facebook posts, it’s becoming a free for all rather than having discussions and debates over issues.
It’s about politics versus policies versus principles. It’s “I am right” not “what is right” from God’s viewpoint.
Hey, it’s HAS been a while since I posted, but for good reason. Been hard at work. I have so many stories to tell.
The month of October was FLUSH with opportunities to be involved and share and learn more about the needs of my community and how I could help and listen for God’s voice. Did He ever speak.
As any entrepreneur will tell you, you have to have opportunity eyes, being able to see what potential there is for serving others. But it’s also having the ears to hear what He wants you to hear.
So let’s begin at what has happened.
If you are ever interested in what a company is like when it follows Jesus and His way, here is an example. I heard Peter Freissle, CEO of Polydeck Screen Corporation speak a few weeks ago at a Christian Business Conference as he told how what God has done within his company. His story was not any different than others that I heard.
God can and DOES change lives when you allow Him into your business.
Watch and be amazed!
On this web site you’re hear a lot about morality and the need for morality in business. Not only is Jesus our model, but in America’s history you will find additional examples of the same model. In this case, George Washington.
Per the video below, here is a snippet:
He was a big believer in individuals creating their own wealth by virtue of their own hard work,” says Lengel. “He took those principles and applied them to the country as a whole as President. He believed that what he did at Mount Vernon was a microcosm of what other entrepreneurs could do for America.
Another quote showed the conflict America had with the motherland of England:
“Americans–and Washington in particular–believed in the early 1770s that we would soon be able to produce for ourselves agriculturally, we would be able to produce manufacturing and industry, and the only thing that prevented that were British restrictions to entrepreneurship.”
Watch below and listen to the foundation of Washington’s entrepreneurialism.
