Faith influences life and business in dramatically powerful ways. It’s never the end, but the beginning.
The influence of faith on business can change your perspective on what’s possible, even when the year hasn’t gone as planned.
The end or the beginning – The influence of faith on business as you close out the year.
August can be a very stressful time. Summer is ending. School is starting. For many, you are sending your babies off to high school or college.
August is a time of transition.
And, if you are like many of the business owners and entrepreneurs I’ve spoken to recently, this has been a tough year to date. Sales are down. People aren’t buying as much. Fear is a very real emotion.
You may have questions about meeting your annual goals, being able to save this year, or having to say no when your kids ask for things they need for school.
But God is a God of the 11th hour. He always provides. It may be last minute, but he will never let you down. . . if you trust Him. He will provide the resources you need.
The words of Romans 15:13 provide a calming effect. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Instead of focusing on August as the end of summer and allowing negative thoughts and emotions to come over you, think of September as the beginning of the year.
September is the new January.
I realize September is the end of the third quarter. But it is also the beginning of the end of the year. It is the perfect time to put the pedal to the metal and focus on your mindset, evaluate, and implement a marketing strategy to create demand in your business, and take intentional action. September is not the time to sit back and let the year coast to an end.
Knowing that God always has a plan and will not let you down and that through Him there is an abundance of hope, you can focus on strategies to create demand and move your business forward toward your goals.
It’s more than possible that in the next 4 months, you’ll meet your annual financial goals.
When you lean into faith and ask God for what you want with thanksgiving for all you already have, (Philippians 4:6) He will provide for you according to His good and perfect will for you.
The influence of faith on business – stop doubting what’s possible.
What is He calling you to as you approach the 4th quarter?
Quite the worry and fear by meditating on Romans 15:13 and listening for what the Holy Spirit is telling you.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
