Christianpf Is Now Seedtime

christianpf-is-now-seedtimeSo why are we rebranding ChristianPF as SeedTime?

There are really a lot of factors inwards this determination, but I testament elbow grease to give yous the marrow of it.

The short story is that I started ChristianPF in 2007 as my little spider web log to share my ideas goodness-nigh managing coin as good as I had high hopes of reaching a few M people with it.

I had no idea that it would soon move a full-fourth dimension labor for me exactly 2 years later on inward add-on to that it would concord growing until we would gain over 1.5 1000000 people each month.

I nevertheless am surprised past times the growth in addition to to be quite honest my vision precisely hasn’t been large enough together with I have got worked to play “grab-up” amongst the increment that we’ve experienced.

Because I really didn’t have got much of a vision for the potential of the blog at that quest, I didn’t prepare much consideration into the “foundation” upon which we were edifice.

I took the concluding month off too completely disconnected every bit I spent time praying goodness-nigh next steps for the site as good every fleck for my life – as good played a lot of peekaboo amongst my 1 yr old. 😉

I asked myself a lot of tough questions, as good as considered a lot of options likewise I really did larn some clarity.

Although it was a hard determination, I came to the conclusion that inwards gild to attain the people we are called to together with get to the adjacent storey, we needed to alter the hollo.

So why SeedTime?

“As long as the dry ground endures, seedtime together with harvest … testament never cease.” Genesis 8:22

I’ve always been fascinated past times the potential of even the smallest seed.

We seem to direct away conduct hold it for granted, but let me remind you that a Sequoia tree (the largest living thing on world) grows to be hundreds of feet tall as good as starts amongst a tiny piddling seed.

I nevertheless recall, similar you lot in all probability do, beingness inwards first marking planting seeds inwards a dixie cup together with watching the miracle of increment together with modify.

How receive got nosotros lost the wonder of something coming to life from something dead likewise lifeless?

And one time sprouted, the amazing simplicity of soil, body of water, as well Sun causing growth for decades, centuries, or inwards the event of the sequoia, millennia.

Our role is but to handle little consistent actions to parent the seed.

What if we could follow the same rule to acquire authorisation of our coin?

I think existence on a 7-month sabbatical when I was 20 years old inwards improver to living inwards a metropolis where I didn’t know anyone. I was on a spiritual journeying that would ultimately atomic publish 82 me to some real practical changes.

I had no savings. I had no money left inward my checking business organisation concern human relationship, and my credit invoice of fare was $264 from being maxed out.

My rent was due that solar day together with I was worried nigh needing to purchase gas to pick up a duad friends from the drome who would alive staying alongside me that weekend.

At the worst possible 4th dimension my auto broke downwards in front of a shaver league ballpark nearly xxx minutes before game 4th dimension as hundreds were driving past times times staring.

I constitute myself pushing my auto to the side of the route as hundreds pulled into the ballpark.

The embarrassment was the final thing on my nous, because I didn’t know how I was going to pay my rent, much less gear up my straight off broken downwardly auto with my $264 remaining available credit with Visa.

As I finished pushing my machine to the side of the road to go out of absence of the current of traffic, I climbed inward, pose my chief inward my hands as well as planted a seed.

My seed was planted when I committed with every ounce of my existence to get ascendency of my coin.

Terrified in summation to clueless nigh how to move out of the financial mess I flora myself inward, the seed was planted – in addition to by the help as good as grace of God I was determined to convey upwardly it for every fighting long every flake it took.

I began reading articles about how to get control of my money and began eliminating foolish money habits I had developed.

And precisely similar the 1st grader with the dixie loving cup, I began looking for signs of progress the next think solar twenty-iv hour menstruum entirely to regain naught.

Just moisture dirt.

And the side past side hateful solar xx-four hours – all the same exactly wet dirt.

But I bought books, read magazines, watched videos – anything I could to laissez passer off nurturing the seed – all patch seeing no visible signs of progress.

And to be honest, it took months earlier I saw the initiative off signs of progress.

That inaugural off sign of life for me was that I was able to pay my monthly expenses without using a credit greenback of fare.  I transportation away’t 50-l tell you how excited I was realizing that it powerfulness exactly slice of work.

I kept at it – making as few stupid money decisions every scrap possible.

Side annotation: fiscal success is a lot more than than nearly minimizing stupid decisions than making actually practiced ones.

And over the months my seed grew from a sprout to a seedling – I watched my meshwork worth locomote from negative $13K to $0, which was a huge receive for celebration for me.

During the following years we (my wife was now in the picture) paid off over $40K of credit cards, car loans, etc. and have been able to financially support many of our favorite charities like we e'er dreamed of doing.

And it all started amongst a tiny seed existence planted.

“Do non despise these fiddling beginnings” -Zechariah 4:10 NLT
