In my current job, as a home security and life-systems sales consultant, it can be challenging. I have to often do spiritual warfare just to keep the other companies from scavenging over my prospects and customers. I also have to pray and ask GOD for favor, that my customers will be receptive, open and willing, and will “buy” from me! I never sell them more than they need, unless they are wanting more. I tell them about all that we have in home automation, and often I get really good sales. But it’s all about the customer, right? I believe so.
But with all of that success, I still cannot seem to reach the level of success my wife has in her business of mortgage processing ... she far exceeds me in the income bracket. I pay high taxes, earning my income from commission sales. So, I am seeking, asking and listening ... to get direction from GOD on what ultimately I am supposed to do. I love teaching and preaching. I often have many who seem interested, and say, “We’re going to have to have you come preach at our church ...” but that’s just it - they are empty promises. Seldom do they call. I don’t want to push myself on them, so I keep asking GOD, is it just “me”? Is this “my dream” and not yours?
I have so many friends in India, Kenya, and other parts of Africa, that are constantly in prayer for me. Many want me to mentor/father them spiritually. I need HIS direction on this ... and I am praying.
