Writer's Block: Last Night's Dreams

What did you dream about last night?

I didn’t dream this last night. I dreamed it over 7 years ago, but it would never go away. Up to now, I’ve been too embarrassed to talk about it (and you'll see why in a minute), but here we go…

I dreamed I started a business and called it 333CardCompany because 3:33 pm was the time of day when people needed  a pick-me-up.
 
It was so vivid down to the last little detail, I couldn’t ignore it. I looked up the scripture Deuteronomy 33:3 and read… “Indeed, He loves His people.”

After pondering it for a very long time, I figured God was asking me to start  an online card business to remind people that He loved them.

Fine, but there were just a few small problems...

I had no business expertise. No photography or Photoshop editing experience. No website creating experience. No business model. No understanding of the steps it took to obtain a business license. No marketing experience. Zero. Zip. Nada. I think you get the point.
 
I started it anyway. I googled how to do everything (amazing, that google).

How did the business go?

It bombed. Major big-time bombed (as in "I-sold-one-card-in-a- year" sort of bomb).

My friend and I laughed until we cried (ok, maybe I cried first, then laughed).

Which brings me to today…

It recently dawned on me that LiveJournal is my "333CardCompany".

That’s why I’m here every day to tell you that God loves you.
 
He does, you know.

Even though "it bombed", I'm sure you learned a lot through that whole process, so it was a growth experience for you, even if FINANCIALLY or otherwise, it came to nothing. Learning is NEVER a bad thing. And who knows, somewhere down the road, all you learned may apply elsewhere. I'm proud of you for trying, that was the important part.

I always remember God's call to Jeremiah (I'm paraphrasing bigtime here); You will go and speak to the people the words I will give you. If they listen, they will be saved. If they do not listen, they will perish. But whether they listen or not, YOU will be saved, because you gave them MY words. God will never charge you with people's response to your sharing the WORD, He only asks that you follow His prompting and share It. You did that. All is well.
