Thinking about starting a decal business on Etsy or Facebook? As a “momtrepreneur,” life is cluttered with busy-ness and chaos. That being said, owning my own business is one of the most fulfilling things I’ve ever done! It’s all about balance and time management… and I’m still learning. This morning, as the sunlight hits my eyes through the blinds, I struggle with running to my to-do list for my business. It’s difficult to stop and spend time in prayer. This is a daily struggle for me; however today, I opened my devotional to a wonderful passage that put it all into perspective for me. Business planning must first start with prayer!
God craves our undivided, focused attention and He uses it to bless you, strengthen you and equip you for your day ahead. Therefore, this time with Him is a wise investment. It’s tempting to get wrapped up in the excitement of entrepreneurship and take our focus off the important part of our lives.
- Reach out in prayer about your business
- Find quiet time to think about what type of products you’ll sell (decals, t-shirts, bags, keychains)
- Make a plan and take it one step at a time.
So tomorrow, before your feet hit the ground, reach for your Bible instead of your phone or device and pour your heart out to Him. The answers you’re searching for will appear in due time. God’s timing is always perfect!
Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. –Hebrews 13:15 NKJV
