I am in the process of making a big decision in my life right now. It is about the future of my practice.
I attended the national LPL conference last week, with the primary question being, “What changes do I need to make to my practice so that I can double my revenue and drastically reduce my time working in the business four years from now?”
At the conference, I feel like it got an answer of what my practice needs to look like. But I don’t like the answer. It is more complicated, means a lot of work, it requires a lot of energy and going way outside of my comfort zone to do this. Most of all, it required me to become a different person than I am now, which requires a great deal of personal growth on my part.
So I told God I didn’t like this answer. Do I have another option to choose from?
In church this Sunday, we sang “Our God” by Chris Tomlin, including the following:
Our God is greater, our God is stronger
God You are higher than any other
Our God is Healer, awesome in power
Our God, Our God…
And if Our God is for us, then who could ever stop us
And if our God is with us, then what can stand against?
What can stand against?
As we were singing the song, I felt God say to me, regarding this issue of me being uncomfortable, “Jeff, this is so not about you. It is about me. I am greater, stronger and higher than you. You may not be able to do it, but I can and I will. So get over your fears, your overwhelm, and let me do this. And it will come to pass…”
Ahem. Well, what can I say to that? I guess I need to get with God’s program…
