“Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.” ~ 1 Peter 3:8


Come now, my friend,

Listen with me:

Do you hear that song

In the sway of the tree?


Do you feel that joy

In the bird’s sweet song?

Do you see eternity

In fields wide and long?


Do you taste Heaven

In warming sun rays? 

Do you feel excitement

On unfolding pathways?


Come now with me,

These blessings let us savor;

They are priceless gifts,

Signs of God’s favor.



Let us sing to Him

A song heartfelt and sweet,

For His love is in all

Whom we see and meet.



Let us dance with delight

In fields wide and long;

Let us harmonize happily

With the bird’s song.



Yes, come now, my friend,

Celebrate with me:

Forever we are Jesus’,

Yes, for all eternity!

Business Tip: Uniquely You

Uniquely You

Business Tip Uniquely You

Purposeful Pathway is a haven for faith-based entrepreneurs. Part of my mission is equipping faith-based businesses with information that is practical, actionable and Scriptural.

The theme of this post is embracing a business that is uniquely you!

As I went out to eat with friends recently, I was reminded of how vastly eating styles can vary. For example, I am a vegan, and I thrive on raw, whole, plant-based foods. Yet not everyone thrives on that type of diet. We have different body chemistries. A source of optimal nutrition for one person may be a source of extreme food allergy for another. God created us wonderfully unique!

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” (Psalm 139:13-14)

This wonderful uniqueness extends to our businesses. Our businesses, too, have different “chemistries.” What works well for one may not work well for another. It is important to try new things while being acutely aware of how our explorations impact our businesses.

So just how you can increase income and impact by being uniquely you?

Let’s walk through seven practical yet powerful steps.

  1. Write a list of every activity you perform in your business. Yes, this may sound like a tedious task, but the process is very helpful. Examples may be daily social media time, a weekly newsletter, a biweekly post, and client coaching calls. Tally your activities and their corresponding frequencies.
  2. Review this list and asterisk the activities which bear the most fruit. Review your files; assess your data; study your income sources. From where did you obtain the most product sales? From whom did you obtain the most referrals? How did you most efficiently grow your following? Mark the most powerful activities on your list.
  3. Look now at the highest fruit-bearing activities and choose to increase them. What are the top three client-attracting and business-building activities? How can you do more of these more often?
  4. Look at the lowest fruit-bearing activities and choose to decrease them (or, in some cases, remove them altogether). This is a crucial step. There are only so many hours in a day; in order to increase your highest fruit-bearing activities, you will need to make space in your schedule. Even if this action seems illogical or contrary to what you have learned, trust your unique business numbers. For example, if you consistently attract more clients from speaking rather than from social media, choose to increase your speaking time and decrease your social media time…yes, even if your respected colleague experiences otherwise. Remember: we have different body chemistries and different business chemistries!
  5. Carefully monitor the changes. Keep track in your business journal when and how you implemented the changes and what results were borne; in doing so, you will discover which adjustments have been most effective and also which adjustments are still necessary.
  6. Call on the Creator of your chemistry. Pray for guidance in every step of this purposeful process. God is the Creator of your unique chemistry, and He is the ultimate Guide. “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)
  7. Rejoice in your remarkable uniqueness! God has fearfully and wonderfully made you. Choose to embrace your uniqueness with frequent moments of contemplation, prayer and celebration!


“But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand.” (Isaiah 64:8)

I am excited for you as you embrace the uniqueness of you and your business!

If you need help with leveraging the “unique you” of your business, I would be happy to assist you. A healthy business involves health all around: body, mind and spirit. Join 3D Vitality Biblical Health Coach Ann Musico and me in a powerful journey for transforming your body, your business and your life here.

Let’s pray. Marvelous Masterpiece-Maker, we delight and rejoice in You! Thank you for making us fearfully, wonderfully and remarkably unique. Thank You for paving purposeful pathways for us that are delightfully different. Help us, Faithful Father, as we travel these paths for Your glory. Allow us to embrace the uniqueness of our businesses and of our lives in order to share Your love and light. We love You with all our hearts, minds, strength and souls. It is in Jesus’ Name that we pray. Amen.

Guest Post: The Trust Shelter

Poetic Guest Post by Pastor FS Bhatti


Pastor FS Bhatti of theTrust Shelter, based in Pakistan, has been working for Lord Jesus Christ for last twelve years on arranging free summer Bible Camps, seminars and conferences for spiritual development. The Trust Shelter blesses others spiritually, morally, and ethically in order to be confident in faith and in order to stand for the Lord’s second coming. Pastor Bhatti shares spiritual poetry in the guest post below. Pastor Bhatti also translates books from English to Urdu for easy understanding in Pakistan. Please visit the Trust Shelter for ministry and translation services at http://shelterorgpak.weebly.com/.


Poem “Deception” written  By Pastor FS Bhatti
Purpose of Delilah  Blinding but deceiving
Purpose of world  Greening garden but deceiving  
Purpose of Jacob Receiving but deceiving
Purpose of Jezebel   Believing but deceiving
Purpose of Robber on Cross  Believing but receiving
Purpose of Prince of peace Seeding but bleeding 


Critical Summary of Poem “Deception” 
•    It is famous story of Old Testament “Samson and Delilah” How she did come purposely to “Samson” to deceive and she blinded his eyes for anger of his mother and king.  •    The world shows green garden first of all but inwardly deceive.  •    Jacob, Brother of Esau, Isaac loved Esau but his mother loved Jacob, she prepared him to deceive his father and his brother Esau to get blessing of his father Isaac.   •    Jezebel spirit is in Revelation of St. John in New Testament, spiritual polluted women who believes but deceives like Ahab’s of old testament had same belief  •    Along with Jesus there was two more cross, on both were robbers and murderers, one of Robber accepted Jesus Christ as King by believing and receiving paradise by faith on cross at that moment.  •    Prince of peace, Lord of Lords and King of Kings is title of Lord Jesus Christ who came according to prophesies of prophets into this world for sinner and wrecked lives. In His holy love sow seeding righteousness in this world but he was crossed for not mixing up with world under their controls of that system. He did sow seeds of righteous, liberty, love, forgiveness. But he himself is blooded on cross without any sin and mistakes. 



Poem “Hope” is written By Pastor FS Bhatti 
In world of trouble where no hope In world of depression where no rope In world of blood shed where non stop In world of friendship where is loop In front of brutality  Where always loop, cop In world of hopelessness Where always stop     In world of Jesus Christ  Where always hope, rope



Critical Summary of Poem “Hope”  •    After sin of Eve, wife of Adam because of Satan, there was troubles every where. Adam had been separated from presence of God. Earth had been cursed because of their sin. Satan is trouble shooter in the garden through Adam and Eve until today. There had been no hope.  •    Without God, this world is place of demons every where, full of depression. Rope symbolize mediator who can help Adam again to come into presence of God.  •    Because of cursed earth of whole world, first murdered of Abel took place by Cain. God spoke with Cain from heaven; blood of your brother is calling ME from earth. Where is your brother what Cain said, I am not responsible of him. Then blood shed had been continual until today as non stop.  •    Friendship is precious gifts of God who had sincere heart for other friend like Jesus Christ who shed his holy blood for us, but it become loop with selfishness as written Micah 7: 5 •    In front of brutality in this world, no one can escape from loop and cop.  •    During 4000 years, God had been sending prophet in this world to warn and alert people from sinful world and destruction even in age of Noah whole world had been destroyed with hopelessness because of their sins. God always stopped on sin to bless the world.  •    In world of Jesus Christ, where is hope and rope. From First Adam, sin came into this world and separation of man and God but second Adam, Jesus Christ brought salvation and reconciliation man to God as mediator into this world, and we all find in Christ hope and rope in presence of Holy creator God. 


Poem “Find the Mind” is written by Pastor FS Bhatti
When multitudes of thought  come in mind
Root of causes which blinds the mind 
Spirit and Flesh are different  which rewinds opposite find 
Which rewinds mind patient of physiology blind?
Which rewinds mind nature of person find
Nature of person finds where regrets bind
Which remind thoughts? These rewinds opposite find
Sheep is lost in darkness but found in Savior’s find





Poem “Is evil, good” written

by Pastor FS Bhatti


King’s blood shed

then why evil is head


Health came on sick bed

Then why head is red


Sadness into happiness of bud

But why innocent’s blood shed


Dark of wickedness is like mud

Then why evil is head


Who make good as an evil?

Then why evil is head



Poem “Storm” written by Pastor F S Bhatti
Storm fear in the river hope  rear but in shiver faith  tear but  the leaver  mountain bear but in shiver woke up Dear but deliver  storm sear of unbeliever sever



Poem “Voice of voiceless” written  By Pastor FS Bhatti 
Christ is the voice of voiceless His blood is the price of priceless 

His word is the sight of sightless

Everlasting hope of hopeless Sound for soundless Ground for groundless 

Bound limit as limitless 

Lost but found from Mess  


Poem “Feeling” written By Pastor FS Bhatti
Feeding or feeling of what kind Seeding or weeding of what mind Wheeling or reeling but what rewind Heeding or reading but what bind Steeling but dealing of what blind weeping with deeding of what find Vicious has no peace of what wind


Poem “Grace” written  By Pastor FS Bhatti 
How beloved are to whom you trace But I am nothing without your grace Royal family of Christ is my trace  I will be base having your lace. Hope of eternal life is your grace  Life of the children is my base  But I am broken vessel of race




Poem “Fight” written  By Pastor FS Bhatti 
Life spent in fighting of faith  Life spent in biting of bait  Don’t know where fate is     

Pain in heart of eternal life  But fighting again fighting 

Biting again biting  Don’t know when without plight

But with faith in His might  on wrong path how i am right on right path

Jesus is in sight




Guest Post: Papa’s Present

“Papa’s Present” – Guest Post by Diane Landry

I recently read a quote by C.S. Lewis, “Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back everything is different….”

Oh what a simple, but powerful truth. I have been thinking about it, chewing on it. A young mother may go about her daily activities, day by day. The endless laundry, the never-ending dirty dishes, the vicious cycle of dirty diapers, the house that doesn’t seem clean no matter how hard she tries to keep it tidy, and the list could go on and on.

But with each passing day, though each day is much the same whether an executive, a home manager, or any other work, the daily duties can be much the same, change is taking place, that will be evident when we look back. 

Sometimes when we pray, we almost seem to approach some requests in much the same way each day. The request remains the same, but what is changing is us. We begin to search our hearts. Or we can begin to look on another person with more mercy. 

That’s basically the lesson found in “Papa’s Present,” ordinary people doing ordinary things, just going about their daily lives, but then things change. 

It’s also the sequel to “Granny’s Gift,” which is a redemptive story of a young woman who takes time out of her career to care for her Granny. In the process, she receives more than she gave, her own redemption. It includes a romance for hopeless romantics such as myself.

Very excited that today Author Diane Landry will join the show! Born in Southeast Louisiana, Diane has lived a colorful life, which lends to inspiration and creativity in her writings. Happily married, she has seven amazing children and five precious grandchildren. She grew up in Southeast Louisiana, in the heart of Cajun country. After running away from an abusive past, she quit running and let God heal her. It was a long and sometimes painful journey, mostly because it was just hard to let go. She is thankful that God never let her go. He patiently guided her. And she can honestly say that He has healed all her hurts and pain. She began writing her life story, but felt directed to the idea of “Granny’s Gift,” which is her first Christian fiction. The sequel,”Papa’s Present,” is now available for pre-release sale.

Every warm embrace.
