It all started circa 2008 with one bible scripture printed on a Christmas card sent to over 7000 people in our business network. We were unsure of their faith and confident there would be much-mixed feedback. My goodness, we were right.
Within 48-72 hours of the Christmas card submission, one of my sales team called to inform me that we had lost at least one contract and possibly as many as three. We also received emails from potential customers inquiring about why we were mixing our religion with our business. Others asked if we would accept them as clients if they were non-Christian. Even Christians questioned our motives. Some snarled, they are trying to leverage the credibility of Christ as a sales mechanism.
In the short term, our revenue plummeted. New client contracts seemed to stop coming in. Within six months, we were struggling to make payroll but had yet to furlough any employees. God was showing us what He meant by “our daily bread,” as quoted from the Lord’s prayer found in Luke 11. We had some weeks where payroll just wasn’t there. However, by Friday afternoon, the revenue always somehow came in.
After six months or more, people in my company had convinced me that our business looked more like a church than an Executive career search consultancy. They warned me sternly that we wouldn’t last if we did not remove Jesus from our business. When I declined, they compromised by saying we could still have the bible scripture and prayers. Yet, they would have to be put in a particular place on the website only for those who wanted to find them. Sadly, I acquiesced. However, approx 3-4 weeks after making the website changes, I instinctually (thank you, Holy Spirit) began putting everything on the website back to the way it was. We were praying more than ever and continued in our faith. We decided if God wanted us to survive, we would. We gave God the reigns, and today our business is striving and thriving like never before. We have zero turn-over in our employee population. We have mandatory prayer daily. There is no drama, no conflict, just harmony, and all we had to do was trust God! Do you trust him today?
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, ”
plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you
hope and a future.
