My journey of becoming an Entrepreneur was set in motion long before I knew I would become one.
Uncovering My Gifts....
Step 1 - Identified
Pointed out by others. This is a great thing, that means I was exercising my Gift. Whether or not I realized or understood it, I was demonstrating it and sharing it with others.
Step 2 - Study/Research
I was excited and wanted to know everything about this new gift that was unveiling before me. What did the Bible say about the gift of Exhortation? The scripture that really spoke to me was, Romans 12:8 the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness. I also looked it up in the dictionary to get a clear definition of the word. It means to uplift and motivate others as well as challenge and rebuke them in order to foster spiritual growth and action, encouraging and urging someone to do something or take action.
Scripture: Romans 12:8 (ESV), Titus 1:9 (ESV), Titus 2:11–15 (ESV), 2 Timothy 4:2 (ESV),
Step 3 - Exercising My Gift
Extorting or Encouraging comes very naturally to me. I have a heart for helping others develop their gifts, talents and abilities. To see others live a life of joy and fulfillment doing what they were purposed to do. This is what I was born to do, remember it was always there. Now I understand it and see Gods power in it and how it fits in the body of Christ.
