A mixture of thoughts from our lives (my husband and me). He helped to write this blog:
Yesterday happened to be one of those days… As we were making some pivotal decisions regarding our business life, like a fox sneaking into the hen house, it felt like our investment plans were literally being attacked by doubt and double-mindedness.
Nevertheless, is this really surprising to have gigantic trials when trying to move against the winds of change? Not really. On a regular basis many of us are undergoing major trials when trying to make critical decisions about our real estate businesses.
Curiously I’m intrigued about how we consider our ways of doing business versus how we might consider how to live according to the ways of God.
Think about this… Oftentimes we worship God on our terms only. In other words, we’re never really surprised by Him nor are we overwhelmed by His presence. Too often, we create the idea of God by what we can comprehend or by how secure we feel or by how we can control our circumstances evenhandedly. Rarely does anything actually surprise us when we predictably control our own outcomes of faith. In a sense, many are afraid to walk by real faith. And as a result, an altered sense of Christianity becomes created. Isn’t this religious idol worship? Each one of us can answer this question for ourselves.
I think that sudden attacks against our logical planning, even for our business lives, are ways for God to test our faith. It’s one method by which God examines our hearts under duress. Do we look toward His inner Spirit trustfully for guidance? Or do we skirt about trying to find solutions through the abilities of other men or by our own survival instincts? Sadly, commonly and frequently, I think we tend to drench ourselves into mere humanism.
Perhaps our outward perplexities are ways to open our eyes to the spiritual…
Relative to our current situation, we’re going to let the dust settle so to speak before we react too impulsively. Then we’re going to pursue the voice of God for His wisdom. Even if things do not go our way as we think they should, I’m sure we’ll learn to live by His ways through this process.
Although the unthinkable occurs for all of us, will you opt to consider this approach of faith to deal with your own trials in the business world?
