At the end of 2013, I wasn’t sure that quitting my job to start a non-profit was a good idea. I have a wife and son to take care of, and not having a pay check definitely hinders that process.
I knew it was a big step. In fact, I knew it would be the biggest decision I would make for all of 2014.
You might be thinking, “That’s impossible because you don’t know what the future holds.”
True. But what I do know for sure is that the decision that is facing you right this minute is the most important decision that you’ll make this year.
And for me, taking a step into the unknown and starting Open Doors Christian Coaching was that decision.
Coming up with the idea for Open Doors Christian Coaching was no small task, and establishing it has not been easy either. But actually taking the steps to commit to being involved was extremely difficult.
I wasn’t sure if this would work. I’m still not 110% sure that it will succeed (just like any other mission based business or non-profit).
One thing I’m sure of: God is in control, and it is more important to risk failure going after what I feel like he wants than not doing what he wants for the sake of playing it safe.
Let me repeat that just to be clear.
I fully believe that going after what I believe God wants me to do is more important than playing it safe- even if what I do fails.
Because, in the end, my purpose is to glorify God. Obedience to his will and all that happens in that process brings him glory.
Whatever my role is in Open Doors Christian Coaching for however long it exists, I will do my best to glorify God in all that I do, all that I say, and in each decision made along the way.
This past month, with a lot of help from your donations, Open Doors Christian Coaching Inc. became a reality.
