As most of you know, I got featured in Daily Nation a couple of weeks ago. To most people, this is a sign of success right? Most people die without earning any media recognition anyway. But wait what difference does it make? Publicity, elevation, a few minutes of fame and bam, back to normal life.
I received congratulatory messages both via text, call, email, WhatsApp and messenger. A couple of friends to their time and shared congratulatory messages via Facebook.
A couple of months ago I was interviewed on a National Television about the business that am building. This was my first time, a few more have followed. Most of them I do not announce but I will talk about this in my later post.
My life may seem well in order to most of you. Its not!! There’s much that you cannot see. Loneliness, depression, insecurities and all that you may not think about. We live the same life.
In May this year, most of my trusted team members resigned from Inversk. No one leaves a company that has really good business statistics. I never complained because this is my first time in business. Am still learning right?
In 2 Corinthians 12:9, Paul notes; “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
This is really a key message. God promises that His grace will be sufficient for us. What we are required is to believe and keep our trust in Him.
You’re living life for the first time. Maybe you’ve ventured in business or have started a new career. Wait, it’s your time to learn. You will make mistakes in multiples. Don’t give up because you are going to learn something new.
In Luke 10, Jesus visits the house of two sisters, Martha and Mary. You know the story.
When Martha was in the kitchen doing the preparations, Mary sat at the feet of Jesus listening to him talk. Martha got worried because she was doing everything by herself. When she complained about it, Jesus had this to tell her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things, but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.” What good thing was could this be?
We get so bothered about so many things. We do things by ourselves. Our focus and attention is taken by what we’re going through. But only one thing is necessary; seating at the feet of Jesus.
Whenever you’re doing something; pause, reflect and go on your knees, consult God. The Lord has promised to always be with you and fight for you. Allow God to lead you in all your decision making and the actions you take.
