Dear God,

I’m freaking out. And I need your help right now. I’m scared and I’m overwhelmed and I’m in a huge panic. I want this business plan done by February 15th, but I feel like every time I get started, I right in the same breath, stop. What if I’m not doing this thing right? What if I can’t get help financing the building? Should I buy an existing salon? But, I want to design one from scratch. What should I do?

Though I’ve broken out the business plan into sections, and I know what I need to be working on, I’m still a nervous wreck.  I can’t seem to get through the first step. Every time I have one thought in my mind, fear takes over. And then it paralyzes me.

Help me God to stay focused. Help me to stay in the moment. Remove this fear that’s holding me back from getting my ideas on paper.

It doesn’t have to be perfect, I know that. So why am I working as if it does? Where is my trust in You? HELP ME. Clear my doubts, Oh God. Help my unbelief.

You said that all I had to do was have the faith of a mustard seed…But God, fear is no joke. And I know with You, fear is also NOT an option. Help me to trust in the process. Help me to stay focused on one task at a time. Help me to just get through the Company Description. I AM NOT going to bed until it’s done. Please God give me the strength to get through this section.

I still thank though You God though for my interview with Sonia tomorrow. I was able to put together my list of questions for her, and I’m sure she’ll be able to help answer my questions since she’s a successful salon owner herself.  

And I know God that I’m trippin and that my fears are nothing I should be giving in to. And I know God that I’m being tested, though for what, I’m not sure.

But I ask Oh God that you give me the understanding, the peace and the focus to get through this next task on my list. I know I can do it, but obviously I can’t do it alone.

I thank you in advance – for peace, clarity and answers. And I thank You God for a finished Company Description page for my business plan.


In Jesus’ name,

    Girrll…God is so awesome when he is at work…I went to one of the womens ministry services at my church a few months back and the spkr was speaking about faith of a mustard seed..she gave us all mustard seeds to symbolize our faith and told us to leave them in differnt places in our homes to remind us thats all we need…Just this morning when I woke up I was feeling a little discouraged about a certain situation…I was looking for something and I saw a few of those mustard seeds and all I could say was Lord I know all I need is just a mustard seed of faith and I have way more than that Father….I know you will take care of it all…..Its all in your hands!
    As long as we know and acknowledge this….all things are possible! What your believing God for will definitley come to pass. Speak that thing into exsitence girl!
