What the heck is a Godly go getter anyway?

Let’s quickly sprint past the gap between my last Faith post and this one [Casually laces up runners]. All I can do is pray for the spirit of consistency to lead me so I can do this more often (lol).

Now that that’s out of the way –I have a story. A couple of months ago I was on a bus ride home from a meeting was thinking about the riveting direction my life has taken since I got married. It blows my mind to say that there aren’t many things today that resemble the life I was living just 8 months ago.

Marriage is the most obvious thing, but my career, city I live in, and even friendships have taken on new faces! Out of all the redirects, the most impactful would have to be my career! When I got married last year, my husband and I decided that it was our time to GO FOR IT; our dreams that is. And with this, I’ve had to learn [Or am learning – Ok, I haven’t really learnt yet] how to be a business minded GO-GETTER who ALSO won’t compromise their commitment to God. So, like anyone would do I gave it some thought and here is what a less than intense brainstorming session with myself produced. Now what does that mean? Well kind sir/ma’am, it means aside from the help of the Holy Spirit I decided to come up with phrases that I’ve decided I never want to say while trying to achieve my work/God balance as a self employed young in’.

So if you still don’t understand what I’m going to be doing in this article, these phrases [if not identical] are along the lines of what I NEVER want to hear myself say during my development. Whether you’re a student, an entrepreneur, or trying to work the ladder at your workplace, always remember that detaching from the vine, (John 15) kills our ability to grow. LEH GO:

  1. “I can’t go to Church because I’ve a meeting Chap (In British accent)” – Um excuse me! Kristina, have you forgotten that it is God that establishes all your plans (Proverbs 16:3). The other option would be to have NO meetings so that you (I) can make every church service!
  1. “Let me save my tithe to have more money to invest into my projects” – The Lord gives seed to the sower, not to the one who invests in their business. Remember that. (2 Corinthians 9:10)
  1. “I owe all my successes to my discipline and superb ability to multitask”– Ha, Lol on lol on lol. I can barely walk and talk sometimes (Psalms 120 (1-2)).
  1. “I wonder if I get to do what I love because God thinks I’m great” – All benefits are by the grace of God, so I never want to get to a point where I feel entitled to think I should get what I want out of life because I’m not superior to another, BUT HEY, I am pretty amazing lol. (Romans 3:10)
  1. “I’ll make time to volunteer at church once I get that promotion” – Naw B! You make time today. This sounds a lot like #1. Just read the answer to that!
  1. “I’m going to do whatever my supervisor says because that’s the only way I’ll move up” – And if it’s unethical.?This attitude is just not good. (Col 3:23 \ 2 Tim 2:15)
