Can Jesus “Save” Your Business

You Are Already Successful
That’s right. You are already successful. Plain and simple. I bet you a million dollars you’re reading this blog post on a computer that cost more than what the majority of the world earns in a year; or on an iPad that cost the same amount of money that could feed a village in Africa for a month.
I am so incredibly blessed. I have a beautiful, God-loving wife who is amazing at her craft and wants to make a difference in the world. I have a whip-smart daughter gifted with an amazing voice that moves people. I have an amazing son who is a Lego master. I make enough money in my business to support my family and RENT at 4-bedroom, 3-bath house. I drive a 2005 Dodge Caravan that looks like you would expect: that a 7-year-old sits in the back seat. But, it’s paid off and gets me from point A to point B. There are times when business is booming and I have eight months of money in the bank. Then there are times when business slows down and I’m working frantically just to get through the next month.
But no matter how good or bad it is, God has been faithful. Every single time we need the money, something comes in. Sometimes it’s one gig that is just enough for the next big payment we have. Sometimes it’s a huge gig that carries us for four months. I pray boldly every day, but then use my God-given gifts as a businessman and a professional artist to support my family.
Do I want more? Heck yes. But I try to stay grounded in the TRUTH that I am already successful. He has already blessed me financially. And he’s blessed you too.
So, in answer to the question of this blog pos: “yes,” I believe Jesus CAN save my business. But He didn’t come to save my business. He came to save ME.
