I love New Years. I love the new start, fresh beginnings, & the chance to get right what you feel like you got wrong the year before. Even though, truthfully, what you think you have gotten wrong has led you to exactly where you are. God doesn’t make mistakes. You might, but He doesn’t.
So with the new year approaching I, as I always do, have been thinking about the next year to follow. What I want to do differently, get right, do better, etc. As I was cooking in the kitchen the other day, I looked out the back window & saw this….
In the midst of a dreary, wet colorless day was this amazing spot of color. These little cars are always colorful, but on this particular day’s end it was even brighter than it normally would have been because every thing around it was without color. In the midst of the death of the environment, cold, & rain this little car was just as bright as ever. It made me think… no matter how dark, slow, or out-of-whack life feels there is always a bright spot & that bright spot shows brighter in those dark moments.
So my prayer for my business in 2015 & really beyond is this….
You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand
Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

I encourage you to find a prayer& pray it over your business, your family, & your life. When things get rough or aren’t going the way you expected or planned, retreat & pray those words over the situation.
Lots of love & thanks,
