Last week, for the first time ever, I asked God to give me a Bible verse for 2014 … and I quickly felt impressed by the Holy Spirit to look up Ephesians 3:20 so I did!
God can do anything, you know – far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. (Ephesians 3:20, The Message)
My prayer is for God to open doors of opportunity for all three facets of my business:
- Christian Speakers Services — that efforts of the past many years and especially of 2013 (blogging and promoting like never before) would manifest into new bookings for events for the speakers on the roster.
- On Stage Speakers Management – that this new area specific for speakers doing business and non-faith based events would get deep roots and opportunity for booking these speakers too.
- emPOWERing Christian Communicators – that speakers, writers, bloggers would connect here and take part in developing their professional ministries so that God can open more doors for them.
It was after I had blurted out “OPEN DOORS!” that I’d realized, “oh yeah, my new church in my new city is The Open Door Community Church.” Hmmm … maybe there is a theme here [insert a big smile]. I don’t believe in coincidence but God-cidences.
What door(s) would you like for God to open for you personally or professionally in 2014? CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT so that you can come back and revisit what He’s done this year on January 1, 2015. Okay?
