Do you struggle to get started? Is the entrepreneurial spirit constantly alluding your best efforts to launch a brand new idea in your life, home, or ministry? Here are few thoughts to breathe new life into your personal initiative:

  1. “Don’t compare your beginning with someone else’s middle.” ~Acuff
  2. “New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.”  ~Tzu
  3. “The scariest moment is always right before you start.” ~King
  4. “Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.” ~Demosthenes

Don’t underestimate the significance of getting out of the “starting blocks”-it is vital to moving forward in God’s will for your life.  We need more brand-spanking-new ingenuity to launch personal journeys of faith, expand Christian homes, build kingdom-minded businesses, and pioneer fledgling church plants all over the world for God’s glory.  May I ask you what is truly possible if we can figure out how to consistently hurdle “the hump” of starting and experience the sweet, shocking momentum that supernaturally follows?

Php 3:13-14 “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are beforeI press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
