If you’re looking for financial wisdom, that’s a topic for another day, my friends.
For three days, I am participating in She Speaks Online 2021, a ministry arm of Proverbs 31. This is my second year attending and it’s been crucial to my growth spiritually and in my ministry.
It is so important for us to invest in ourselves. I invested time, money and effort into the WW program and achieved my weight loss goal. I invested time and energy into an activity routine and I am stronger an more flexible than I have ever been.
Investing in my ministry takes time to study, pray and learn from experts. I won’t benefit from just plunking down a registration fee and expecting change to happen. I’m making notes, asking questions, connecting with other and praying for God’s leading.
Does this all sound selfish? I have thought that from time to time, but I have decided that these were not selfish investments. My physical, emotional and spiritual growth are amazing dividends. I see how I can serve God, my family, my church and my community more effectively as a result of these investments. The joy and satisfaction of these dividends encourages me to invest again and again.
My exercise goals are taking a back seat for the weekend as I sit for the better part of three days in the conference, but that’s ok. I’m balancing my goals and learning to be more flexible with myself. Emotional flexibility is important in getting those goals.
How can you invest in your future? Maybe it’s starting (or restarting) a healthy eating plan, lacing up those walking shoes or signing up for a Bible study. Post in the comments your next investment step. You are worth investing in!
