We’re just past the halfway mark for 2008 and already I’ve had such a full year. Business is going very well, and it’s not because of anything I’ve done. So far this year, all of my official attempts at marketing and advertising haven’t generated a dime of business, yet I’ve been busier than ever. People and opportunities seem to pop up from nowhere at precisely the right time. I can’t help but think it’s God’s way of reminding me that He’s in control.
I ran across a verse in Deuteronomy today. Chapter 8:11 paraphrased “When so many things in your life are going well—make sure you don’t become so full of yourself and your things that you forget God.” Verse 17 “If you start thinking to yourself, ‘I did all this. And all by myself. I’m rich. It’s all mine!’—well, think again. Remember that God, your God, gave you the strength to produce all this…”
I feel like I go through life without giving God the credit He deserves, so this is me giving Him some long overdue and sorely understated props!
