God’s direction throughout sale of business

Last year it became clear to me that it was time to sell the advertising agency that had been part of my family for over eighty years. This was not an easy decision, and I was well aware of many cases where the sale of a family business went horribly wrong. I wanted very much to find a buyer who would be passionate about helping our clients achieve their marketing goals according to the honest and principled practices we had built the business upon.

The first thing I needed to do was eliminate my fear of not finding a buyer and having to close the firm. I held to the thought that our business was a right idea that would attract the right buyer, and fear couldn’t stop right activity.

The spiritual definition of Mind in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy includes this: “Deity, which outlines but is not outlined” (p. 591). This said to me that it is God who does all the doing, all the planning, all the outlining. I constantly rejoiced in the truth that God’s plan for our business was in operation, and that there was no other plan. There is no power or presence other than God, and therefore nothing that could interfere with God’s plan.
