As a teenager in church, I remember hearing the Deacon call, "Prayer Time" as we sat in the basement socializing before service.
We knew it was time to wrap-up our conversations and get upstairs to seek God. As a adult in the marketplace, I've learned that prayer time occurs throughout the day. I have to seek God in everything that I do, because God's timing is crucial to being successful.
Today, I am discussing the "Praying Mindset," based on the scriptures in Ephesian 6:18 and Psams 141:2. As Christians in the marketplace prayer is a communication tool that must be used all day every day. As entrepreneurs and professionals, God can use us to impact our environments and help other.

Servant-Leaders as described in Matthew 23:11 by Jesus seek to serve others without a hidden agenda. The book, "Good to Great," describes a servant leader as a Level 5 Executive, one that is humble and driven.
Today, I discuss the attributes of a servant leader with Pastor Alliene Johnson of Heart of Jesus Ministries in Garden City, Michigan. Pastor Alliene Johnson and her husband, Apostle Hemp Johnson are compassionate and humble leaders that seek to build up the faith of fellow Christians. Visit their website at www.hofjesusministries.com
Join us as we discuss the examples of leadership within the Bible as well as in the marketplace.

Leadership is crucial to the vitality of any business or organization. Jesus Christ mandated that great leaders become as the servant to thier subordinates. Matthew 23:11-12 stresses the need for humility in leaders.
Likewise, companies that have gone from subpar to outstanding had CEOs that were classified as Level 5 Executives. Jim Collins, author of "Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don't," defines such leadership as Humility + Will.
Listen in as I discuss the characteristics of great leaders and their need for humility versus bravado.

Many of us are familiar with the phrase, "We are more than conquerors," which is based on Romans 8:37. We repeat the scripture in times of travail, but what are the traits of a conqueror. Today I focus on winning ways, and what Christians in the marketplace must do to truely be conquerors. I look at I John 5:4 and again at Romans 8:37.
Yes we can believe that we are more than conquerors, but we know our faith alone is not enough. We must take the proper steps to get us to that point.

This week I continue talking about process. Getting through our creative and life processes can be challenging. However, as Christians in the marketplace, we have a tool to help us achieve our goals and objectives through out the day.
Galatians 5:25 simply tells us to walk in the Spirit. We can achieve more and hit our targets if we learn how to follow the voice of God by flowing in the Holy Spirit. Finding your flow in the Spirit will not only increase your productivity, but will also produce the benefits of peace, joy and goodness to name a few.
Listen in as I discuss the process and benefits of Flowing in the Spirit. We appreciate your support. Leave us some feedback and share your experience with Flowing in the Spirit. Visit our facebook page at www.facebook.com/shineandgrindshow

As entrepreneurs and professionals we must follow a process for product or service creation. Building, testing and learning are a part of the creative process. Likewise, as Christians we have a simular experience. We build a strong foundation in the Word of God, our faith is tested by trails and we learn more about ourselves and God.
James 1:3-4 (NIV) are the scriptures that I am speaking from this week. Perseverance is a key characteristic that will help us to reach our full potential and ultimately profit from our experience. Profiting is more than financial gain, but it ensures that we have a solid foundation to overcome anything. In essense, we become more than conquerers and built to dominate our space.
