Creating something from nothing

Comments are closed.

Many people find themselves unemployed because of economic problems. My encouraging word today is: Don’t be totally discouraged by what you have lost. You still have your talents, skills and abilities. You have not lost them. I encourage you to use the “Entrepreneur” approach. Create something from nothing.

If you worked in the banking industry, you may have the skill to assist others in qualifying for loans or help them understand the basic workings of the stock market. Use those skills to create wealth for yourself by helping others solve their problems.

Although the verse may not exactly fit, In Proverbs 11:26, it says, “He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it”. Notice that it did not say you had to “give” it away, although giving is nice. But it said “selleth it”.

To me this means that if you have something that can help people, they will be more than happy to reward you for it with pay! So again, I encourage you to take inventory of what you have and take it to the market place. People are waiting to buy from you.

And as you begin to help others, you will notice that you need help. The cycle has begun and a new micro-economy is created. Let it begin with you.

It’s not so much what others think [Repost]

Web Art; meetingIt is more about what you believe. I was reading in the book of Matthew (Chapter 8).  A particular passage of scripture stuck with me, because it read true.  “Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee”, the verse read. 

The preceding scriptures were a couple of parables that described how faith operates.  Basically, the requirement to make “faith” work is “belief”.   As I re-read the scriptures a few times, I was fascinated how easy it was for some people to believe just because they do.  One of the parables was about a centurion who asked Jesus to heal his servant who was some distance away.  Jesus said okay, and had offered to go to the soldier’s house to heal his servant.

Inside Looking Out [Repost]

Comments are closed.

There is a phrase that goes “outside looking in”. It usually indicates that either someone is not a part of an activity (even though they may desire to be) or they are somehow isolated from a course of normalcy.

This Thanksgiving holiday I encourage you to focus on the opposite. Focus on the “inside looking out” parts of your life – whatever they may be. Be thankful that you are not living on the streets and pray for those who might be that they would find shelter. Be thankful that you have food and give whenever possible to individuals or organizations who supply that need to others. Read More
