This is what I do in our small urban back yard. I have a comfortable place to sit in the sun with a good book and a cup of tea. I have some pots of plants with a nice mixture of greens and colors so I have something beautiful in my view.
I don't have the faith for the substance of enjoying flowers I have to plant from seed! So I go to the nursery where they have used their faith to plant the seeds, look after them, grow them up, and sell them to me. I feel like I've actually bought TIME.
Our summers here in Western Canada are so short, May to maybe September, so I want the biggest 'bang for my buck"! My faith is in the nursery and it's substance for everything that happens in my life.
Our cottage industry business, Jesmic Jewelry by Esther Susan, was born out of faith. If the definition of faith is "... the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things unseen", then Susie and I were on the right track when we decided to apply our experience to opportunity.
My faith comes from knowing that from whatever I plant, I will get a harvest. I've planted seeds and not all of them germinate. I make sales calls and not all of them 'germinate', but many do and then my faith is used to prepare samples and sales sheets for the meeting. My faith in planning comes from my very active, God-given imagination.
I know that with the right care and following good principles and my prospects buying process, I will reap a harvest. Not only for increase in cash flow, which every business needs, but also in making great friends and long term acquaintances with our customers. The testimonials, references and networking from these are like getting multiple harvests from a single plant!
All faith becomes substance. What you believe for, and take action towards, eventually manifests and you can then see it, touch it, feel it! Even as a little seed becomes a plant, or even a very large tree, our ideas, when sown into the right soil, actions, circumstances, or even Divine Appointments we didn't plan, turn into the substance that we hoped for! Where is your faith being directed today?
If you see our products and have faith to believe that they will manifest a profit for you from your market, then we encourage you to act on that faith and try our BLING THINGS to hang or wear! We'd love to hear from you! Check out those who have: Where to Buy One
