Psalm 16:5

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

God's Warth is Coming... Are You Ready?

You had better listen to the words of Jesus, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter, but he that does the will of my father in heaven.” If ye by the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. If you live after the flesh, you’ll die! The cross does not give us a minor shift or two with regard to a few of our ethical and religious values. The cross radically disrupts the very center and citadel of your life from self to Christ. And if the cross has not done that, YOU’RE NOT A CHRISTIAN! My Friend face it, young rogue, you’re not a Christian until the cross has radically disrupted the very center and citadel of your life! And brought you from a life of commitment to serve self…What are the focal points of the reign of your self? If you’ve gone to the cross in union with Christ, it’s been shattered!"

New Things are Happening

Alas, I have got the entrepreneurial bug. I started my first business (Soter's Windshield Repair) last December. I have done various contract jobs, but they are all stand alone, so I guess they don't count as a business. This week, I am off on my second real business that, Lord willing, should be operating by July. If the Lord blesses, it will be my favorite job for sure, although the one with the most liability. So what have the last couple days looked like? Well, Saturday I was trying to figure out if I could actually start the business with cash on a hair string of a budget (ie, less than one half of my tax return which isn't very big). I got the affirmative on that so today was spent pouring over laws, regulations, government forms, sole proprietorship vs. LLC, zoning regulations, etc. I visited the local city hall, the sheriffs department, talked with the county zoning commission... The result? I got tentative permission for the business from the zoning board, just have to go in and pick up the permit. I determined what form of company I would be setting up (sp vs. llc question) and studied the best way to protect my assets (think I answered that question as well). I also found a lot of questions I hadn't realized I would need to answer. Red tape... I'll keep you updated as to the success or non-success of this company as time goes on. The name by the way starts with Soter's, just like my last one. As to the business itself, that is to be announced on the success of this operation. Until next time...
