Inspiration from the Carpenter

My faith has played a BIG part in my career and without daily prayer and divine intervention, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

I believe God works through weakness and when we plug into his supernatural power, we can accomplish our dreams and MORE.

Working in the trades has alot of risks. At the moment commercial and housing construction has been in a lull due to the GFC and various problems with Government and lack of spending by consumers. I know many companies that are having to let go of staff due to lack of work. Pricing is competitive and some companies are pricing below cost to keep staff employed. Sooner or later these companies will falter because losing money can only be handled for so long.

This area of my blog is an area where I want to encourage you and offer insight when none is available in your present work area.

You may find yourself reading this area of my blog because you have a sales quota to meet and you are going to miss your budget this month or you could have no work and be feeling down about work and life in general.

I will be sharing scriptures that are to encourage and build up. This WON’T be a bible bashing area, but it will be an area where you can be inspired to lift your head high and KEEP going.

Life is tough, work can drain and discourage and our mind can only battle so many burdens and responsibilities. Take note that God cares if we carry our burdens to Him.

James 1:5 “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”

    Thank you for sharing this Rebecca. I listen to 96.5, as adam and i are in brisbane too. Life is hard especially when you have your own business. My husband and I have a security business – Thornton Security Group Pty Ltd – hard but very rewarding! P.s I will look you up if I need a plumber!

      Hi Judy,
      Thank you for your lovely comment and yes I agree having your own business is hard isn’t it? The flexibility is great but the money or the work doesn’t always come in as we expect. I have just looked up your website too and will keep your details on hand should I get asked for recommendations regarding security.
