2021 has induced a little four-letter-word:
This reflects the lesson I most often measure myself against:
the discipline of the ant.
I wish I could say that I see a perfect reflection as I look at myself in the mirror of the scriptures...
...but that wouldn't be true.
More often than not, I have to pick myself up, dust off, and strive to keep going.
The ant leaves quite the example to follow.
And so do any leaders I find worth following.
As a copywriting student, hearing copy masters talk shop and faith gets me almost as excited as digging into the Word itself.
A good indication that I must be on the right path, and to keep going and getting out of bed every day to press ahead.
I can't even begin to adequately express the gratitude I have for learning in the shadow of men of God who have sought to be living examples of what it means to be a Kingdom Entrepreneur.
Joining a challenge, studying Proverbs daily, launching a website, developing and migrating content, staying on top of social media, looking for quality clients, and working on current writing for clients takes a lot of work!
I never would have thought this could be anything less than insanity, let alone enjoyable.
"Observe the Ant, lazybones! Consider her ways and become wise." Proverbs 6:6
This, I'm learning, is the life of the Ant-repreneur!
