    Is It Okay for Christians to Run Businesses, Make Money and be in Leadership?

    Is It Okay for Christians to Run Businesses, Make Money and be in Leadership?

    In this week’s podcast, hear Sj’s heart about being a Christian, being a female, being in business and being in leadership.  How God used women to change history.  There were women throughout the Bible that God used tremendously and amazing things happened because they stepped out and followed God’s call.  SJ encourages and takes you back to your core values.   Have a listen!

    Founder Sarah-Jane Meeson was given a word to inspire women. Since then, Sarah-Jane dreamed about how she could inspire women and unite them together. She knew it was going to be for God and she knew she had a passion for business and just to see people thrive and be all that they can be: no matter what past they’ve had, no matter how much money or where they come from. It’s about them being the best person they can be for God and to help share their story of how God has worked through their life and business.
    After chatting with a girlfriend and sitting on the idea for a while, God kept prompting her heart to bring this movement of women together. After some time, Sarah-Jane knew what she needed to do; she bit the bullet and now here it is. Christian Women in Business – a movement of Christian women pushing forward for God in their businesses … and it’s great!

    It's Time to Let God Water the Dry Land in Your Life & Business

    It's Time to Let God Water the Dry Land in Your Life & Business

    In this week’s podcast, SJ shares the story of why she founded Christian Women in Business and the amazing things that God has done along the way.  Sometimes, we can feel overwhelmed especially when we are in chaos.  This is a reminder to go back to the why you started and the awesome things that God has put in your heart in the first place.
    Some questions that can help you evaluate where you are:

    Why did you start your business?  What was the passion you have?  What difference did you want to make?What’s on your heart to achieve and created? What ways has God intervened in your journey along the way that has made you go Wow!?
    John 15:5“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.

    A Spirit Led Business

    A Spirit Led Business

    So now that we’ve touched on freedom and that we are now free in Christ, I want to touch on what Paul has spoken about in the chapters we read in the previous podcast.
    So we know that now we live in freedom in Christ and we are led by the Spirit. What does that mean in the day to day runnings of our businesses of being lead by the Spirit?
    1. It means, we have access to the most powerful business mentor (not coach) mentor, of all time, God. We can ask Him any questions we want about business at anytime.
    2. It means, we have faith in what God has given us as a business. What do I mean by this? I mean that, there are times when doubt might come up, or people question what you’re doing, or if you’re the right person for the job. As a leader in business friends may judge you, they will ask why are you doing what you’re doing and not understand. People may get jealous of you and you loose friends through that jealousy.
    I personally know what this is like and I am not going to pretend that CWIB as been a walk in the park to build and run. I have lost friends, I have been judged, I am judged on a regular basis. I am challenged, and each time I go through it, I face anger, self doubt and frustration. I am only human. It seems though, that no matter what is it that I go through God listens and bring me back to, do I trust and have faith in Him. My answer is YES, and from me saying yes I have that Godly peace, freedom and grace that comes over me and I feel right back on track. Maybe you can relate to one of these? God uses people who are of the Spirit, that will send scriptures out of the blue, telling me that God put me on their heart and that they’re praying, WOW. God restores my faith and He can do that for you too.
    3. It means that we are to listen to the Spirit over man and stand firm and have faith in what we have heard. If God isn’t giving you the go ahead to give, be it money, time whatever and it’s not sitting write in your spirit, trust it and have faith in that. If God through the Spirit tells you to give $100,000, do that and have faith in that. We are to fine tune our spiritual ears to the Holy Spirit and not to be condemned my man to believe we “should” have to do something or give something. It’s between YOU & God, whatever it is.
    If God has told you to start a toilet paper factory, do it! Have faith in what you have heard.
    If God has given you a revelation from the Word, trust it.
    4. We have Gods love, with or without our businesses. As John reminds us, we have Christ, who lives in us, and Him in God. It doesn’t matter what business we have, it doesn’t matter how much we make. God doesn’t look at us and our worth on these things. He loves us, for just being us. He loves you for just being you. He gives you the faith when you don’t have it.
    At the end of the day it’s about Him not us. It’s not about what we have done, but about what God has done, we get to live in that freedom from that.
    Can you trust God and have faith when you’re not giving? Can you trust God and have faith when you have everything? Can you trust that God loves you, just for you, not matter what you do or what business you have?
    5. We have a 24/7 prayer hotline that even when we don’t know what to pray the Spirit will take over and pray for us.
    6. We can surrender the fears, count the blessings and remember, doing business in Gods grace is always easier than the grind.
    7. Give yourself freedom to grow and make mistakes, God will look after you and pick you back up when you need it.

    Having Freedom in God in Your Business

    Having Freedom in God in Your Business

    In this week’s podcast, SJ asks the following questions – do you understand the meaning of being free in Christ and the freedom that comes with it?  Do you really fully understand what it means for you and your business?  She’s also being asked a lot of questions and she answers them through the Scripture so we can have a better picture of God’s heart and His plans for you.  Have a listen and be enlightened!
    Did you know that when we gave our life to Christ we were given freedom in that? That we no longer live under the law of the flesh but of the Spirit.
    Romans 8
    It’s no longer about what we can give God. It’s what God has already given us.
    Galatians 4 & 5:1-26
    Ephesians 2
    Act 13
    Romans 13:8-10 commandments turned into one.

    Letting God Drive the Bus of Your Business

    Letting God Drive the Bus of Your Business

    We have a free webinar series on this, “Learning How To Create A God Centred Business That Makes Money.”
    Melinda Trembath, Letting him ‘drive the bus’ while I’m an attentive & willing passenger!
    Sylvie Croslard, Dedicating my work to him, from pace to content, to when to do things, to where to look to find helpers.
    Susanna Bateman. It has never been a question of surrendering it to Him for me and Rob as God was the One who created the idea and plan it all in the first place.
    He was the One who asked us to do it, it wasn’t our idea to surrender, it was His idea He thought of it and His question for us was, will we be obedient and step out in faith to walk with Him IN it.
    Our part was and is to follow His dreams for the business, listening to what He is saying and following His dreams as He continues to create and extend the business.
    Our business is an extension of God’s Kingdom here on earth just like anything else we are involved in and living, because our whole lives are dedicated to Jesus.
    We see our business as a ministry, an opportunity to release God’s Glory into the lives of our staff, the children, all the families and whoever is involved in LM in any way He tells us.
    He goes before us and we follow as closely as possible as we follow His voice and promptings.
    It is a vehicle to release His Glory into and over people who otherwise would not come into contact with His love, mercy and grace.
    It’s a vehicle to release His miracles to display His splendour in many different ways.
    It’s a vehicle that He is driving and we have the awesome privilege of partnering with Him as He shows us how.
    I could go on and on, there is so much to say because He is such an amazing God and because He has shown us over and over again that
    Ephesians 3:20 is so very true.
    It’s a bit like what Jesus said, we only do in our business what we hear Him tell us to do, just like He only did and said what The Father told Him to.

This is exactly what I needed

When I found this podcast, I felt so excited and relieved. I have been trying to integrate my faith and my business and feeling so confused and confused. Just listening to a couple of SJ’s episodes has given me hope that I can be authentic as a Christian in my business. Thanks, SJ!😊
