Verse of the Year 2017: Habakkuk 2:2 (KJV)

Guest Post by Tammie Polk

At the International Christian Mompreneur Network, we’re not making New Year’s Resolutions. We’re choosing a scripture verse to guide us through the year instead. We’re selecting a verse that speaks to our hearts and offers support, hope or motivation for us to live out the following year with purpose and direction. The following is part of a series of posts featuring members of the International Christian Mompreneur Network sharing their scripture verse of the year. We pray these posts will inspire and encourage you to select a scripture verse to guide you through the year as well.

Being challenged to think bigger lead me to this verse. For years, I used I Timothy 4:12 about being an example, but my thoughts really didn’t change much and I became complacent. When I embraced the challenge to think bigger, God began to show me a lot both through His Word and through others that I knew and trusted!

For example, I was challenged to take my book, The Virtuous Business Woman: Inspired by Proverbs 31 and turn it into a workshop, online course and train the trainer program. Those thoughts eventually turned into hosting my own business retreat in the near future. As a mom, I found myself looking for better ways to cultivate the interests of my children and now we are making plans to further that goal.

As both a mom and an entrepreneur, this verse challenges me in that it helps me to get out of my comfort zone and resist the urge to stay where I am when I know that I am capable of more. It leads me to come up with those goals that are scary and evaluate what I say I want for both my business and my family. The goals that I have achieved seemed to only be a small piece of the vision God gave me, but I was okay with that–until I started hearing this verse more and more. I realized that, in order to fully operate in light of that vision, I had to look at where things might go!

I pray that this verse will help me to look beyond what I can see and truly envision all that God has for me in my home and my business. I believe that the more I step into God’s vision for my home and business, the more that I will get done for Him and in His name. I believe that all that I need and desire for my home and business will be fulfilled by Him once I step into what He has asked me to do.
