I celebrated my one year anniversary with It Works on March 20, 2014 and while I am still completely amazed at the blessings God has brought to our lives through this business, I started feeling an urge to seek Him more with it. As it grows by leaps and bounds, I yearn to seek the Lord and find His perspective; his vision for my business. When I slowed down to really truly pray about this I just didn’t have the words. How do you pray for something that already feels like such an incredible blessing? How do you pray for something that’s all completely his doing? As I pondered this, one scripture kept coming to mind, “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.” Romans 8:26. So I just sat. I sat at His feet and waited to hear. For days. And I wrote down every thought, image and idea that came to mind. This was my takeaway; this is the new vision for my business:
We are helping.
This is about friendships. This is whimsy.
We are not desperate and drained, like dogs seeking water. No, we are confident and strong. This is fun.
We have energy. We have strength.
We are quiet but mighty.
There is this peace that sparkles; it’s contagious.
This is not of me. Not of us, so that anyone could boast. This is a God thing.
Together, we turn it all gold. We’ve got beauty to share and blessings to spread.
As I begin a new month, with new goals, I am more confident than ever that God is doing big things here. I am so excited to see what He has in store.
