Leading With Jesus
📖 My heart's desire to have a collection of Christian books for sell at the gallery was answered today when the first box of books arrived.🥰

God is in the struggle, chaos and mess creating order and beauty, and weaving together His grand master plan that is bigger than what we can comprehend for those who love and trust Him (Romans 8:28). His plan is to develop your character and bless His kingdom. In the end, learning to totally depend on the Lord is a gift. It's more important than how your business fairs. As a believer, your suffering is never in vain with God. Paul confirms this in his second letter to the Corinthians.
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ" (2 Corinthians 1: 3-5.
You may be the light someone needs right where you are planted. Don't give up when it's hard. Be so attuned to His voice that you know when it's time to move into His will and His next place for you. Go from glory to glory.
