With the recent CT tragedy, the economy remaining unstable and the House still discussing the fiscal cliff solution, it may seem like the world around us is crumbling. This, like everything else in life, depends upon how you look at it and whom you’re placing your trust in.
While you can’t control the world around you, you can control what thoughts you choose to entertain and what words you allow to come out of your mouth (which are often a reflection of what’s in your heart).
As 2 Corinthians 10:5 says we are to ‘take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.’ So if you’re confused, frustrated, anxious or maybe feeling hopeless, it’s time to take a stand.
Don’t wait for someone somewhere to create a new job. Take control of yourself. Don’t wait for anyone else anymore. You got the power – use it!
The One Who made you, and the work prepared for you, wants to hear from you. If you have not called Him in a while, do it now. It is not better later. Tell Him how you really feel. If you want a job … maybe even THE job … tell Him! Ask Him what steps to take. Pray for others, and ask them to pray for you.
You cannot do this thing alone. Join a team or start a team job creation team. Help each other figure out what you can offer to people who will pay. Teammates can provide each other encouragement, counsel, contacts and accountability.
I can count over 23,500 people on our website who signed up for our workbook and resources. We have hundreds of volunteers across the country helping people do the plan. The plan is a simple. Notice, I did not say easy. It takes hard work to get work. The secrets to making the plan work is our Maximize Your Career Workbook and:
- Praying to hear and follow God’s calling.
- People helping people every step of the way.
This Christmas – Create Your Own Job.
Start with prayer. Connect with people. Follow the plan. All I want for Christmas is job creation for you and me. Write me with your comments, questions and critiques.
Merry Christmas! May Jesus’ love grant you peace as you remember who controls our tomorrows.
