I have felt called to ministry for as long as I can remember. I felt, at times, like I never really answered the call because I did not attend seminary and I do not work for a church.
What exactly does "being in ministry” look like and what does it mean? I will share my journey one day but for now, I will say I have stayed true to my love for Jesus, I still felt the stirring in my soul that I was not fulfilling my true purpose.
I listened to a sermon once and the pastor communicated our work is our ministry. For years I did not feel confident in how to minister in the workplace? I began praying and asking God to show me what it would look like. How to stop dividing my world into boxes and extend myself by using my worship and faith at work.
I know my heart and I know my passion is to help and serve people. In business, I want to help others reach their dreams. I am a cheerleader of dreams! In my world, the biggest dream, is to watch my clients succeed in their perspective businesses.
But sometimes my own legalistic attitude gets in the way. Why does it have to be work or ministry? What happened if my career and life were a marketplace ministry? My business’ name is "be" Boutique PR first, because it is the beginning of "believe", secondly, I want your marketing to BE all it can be so you may see your business BE exactly what you want.
Does the church need to stay inside the walls of a building, or can I BE what I want to be? What I want to be is a woman so rested in God I live my life as an example in all areas.
My work, today, is truly my worship and I take it a day at a time trusting God to collaborate with me through the next phone call, meeting, new client. To make the choices I will need to lead my business. I have the greatest business partner in Him, and He wants to team up with you as well. In the "God Tank" everyone gets a deal. It takes courage because others will judge when you step outside the contemporary doors of traditional business and work in worship.
And, that is ok!
