When you believe that nothing happens in your life by accident, and that everything is “ordered” by the Creator, life becomes so much easier for us to embrace.
My day started with a training conducted by the Health and Wellness company I work for. As I participated in the training and listened to other Marketing Executives share their journey to success, the recurring theme was so similarly aligned with Master Key, Part 23:3, 5 which states:
“We make money by making friends, and we enlarge our circle of friends by making money for them, by helping them, by being of service to them. The first law of success then is service, and this in turn is built on integrity and justice… You can make a money magnet of yourself, but to do so you must first consider how you can make money for other people. If you have the necessary insight to perceive and utilize opportunities and favorable conditions and recognize values, you can put yourself in position to take advantage of them, but your greatest success will come as you are enabled to assist others. What benefits one must benefit all.”
I was so stoked by the similarities of this training and my MKE experience, that this was a confirmation for me that I was on the right track…The track of building my business with a service mindset, and also that I am right where I am supposed to be, doing the MKE at this point in my life. In my checking account, the recurring statement on my check leaves is this, ” My times are in Your hands, O Lord.”
Another enlightened thought that came my way was that because of the fear I had allowed to be part of life for so long, my business was not where and what it should have been. MKE 23:1-2, states that:
” The money consciousness is an attitude of mind: it is the open door to the arteries of commerce. It is the receptive attitude. Desire is the attractive force which sets the current in motion and fear is the great obstacle by which the current is stopped or completely reversed, turned away from us….Fear is just the opposite from money consciousness; it is poverty consciousness, and as the law is unchangeable we get exactly what we give; if we fear we get what we feared. Money weaves itself into the entire fabric of our very existence; it engages the best thought of the best minds.”
I have been learning in this program that it is okay for me to desire money, and want a whole lot of it!
How can I help others and be of service to them in my business if I feel like I do not deserve to have much? How can I teach them what I do not believe? All wealth comes from my Creator, and the more I (we) have, the more we can serve others and do “kingdom” work.
MKE is helping me to create a New Reality and relationship with money, and the other areas of my life I allowed to atrophy because I felt I did not deserve much, or that desiring more money than what was needed to just pay my bills, was not of the Lord, and not “spiritual.”
I am also constantly reminded now by Og Mandino, and just the training that, I should always do my best, and what I plant NOW, I will harvest later.
MKE 23: 7, puts it all together for me, and I embrace the truth of it:
“ If we recognize the Omnipotent power that is the source of all supply we will adjust our consciousness to this supply in such a way that it will constantly attract all that is necessary to itself and we shall find that the more we give, the more we get. Giving in this sense implies service. The banker gives his money, the merchant gives his goods, the author gives his thought , the workman gives his skill; all have something to give, but the more they can give, the more they get, and the more they get, the more they are enabled to give.”
We all want more money, and we all must remember that it is all about serving others. We owe it to ourselves and those waiting for the Blessing.
I always keep my Promises!

Valerie, good for you for realizing that it is all about serving others. From your blog rover friend John.
Your blog was exactly what I needed to hear today – This is my path for sure –
“We make money by making friends, and we enlarge our circle of friends by making money for them, by helping them, by being of service to them.

Thank you – your journey will certainly inspire others as it has done me.
Thank you so very much Naila. I am so happy to have been a source of inspiration to you. This is why I started my blog, this is why I do what I do, and I feel so Blessed to be one of the instruments He can use as His hands and feet. Thank you for your encouragement.
Valerie, I have enjoyed reading your blogs very much. Thank you. Best to you. From your blog rover friend John.
Thank you John. I have appreciated your comments and encouragement. Are you continuing the MKE journey? I would love to continue this ‘sharing’ relationship we have established these past months.
Thank you, John. Serving others is what we are here for. Our Master fed thousands, and even washed a few feet because that’d what the need was.
