contentment

For I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength! Philippians 4:11-13

We often hear the last portion of this scripture (I can do everything through him!) without taking into account the first few verses leading to it. These verses are huge and important to the text as a whole!

Are we content? Are we content in the place we are right now? Whether successful or struggling? I am not referring to contentment in a complacent state of mind with your business, but rather contentment in Christ every day! My own personal journey was one where at times I wasn’t sure if I would be fed, but in that place of lack that is where I found contentment. The plenty never did it for me, but the lack taught me lessons only it could teach! If you’re not in plenty today, don’t fret! Knowing Jesus is all you need and He will give you the strength to truly do all things through him!

First we need to be content in him alone and then we will find contentment in the rest… family, business, and life all together!

Welcome to the Inland Empire Chapter!
We are happy you are taking the time to get informed about a CWSBA chapter near you! My name is Claudia Garcia, the owner of Royalty Medical Solutions, a healthcare administration company. My home church is Mountainview Faith Community Church in the city of Rancho Cucamonga, where my husband and I serve the Lord! As the president of the Inland Empire Chapter I am excited to invite women who love God to network with like minded women!

My testimony:
I failed at several businesses and one day frustrated with the Lord about my failures, I fell to my knees and repented. God showed me that I had the spirit of entitlement all over me, which began early in life as a child who never lacked a single thing.
I also felt like I needed to figure it all out on my own. Although I love the Lord, I was about my own business and not his, at least not 100%! What I needed to learn was what it meant to solely depend upon God for everything and in everything! That very same day after crying and repenting from the sin I was unaware I was harboring, the phone rang and it was the first lead that opened the doors for many others which ended up leading to several clients!

God did what He promised He would do, but first I had to be ready for what He had in store! I want other women to know that God always has their best interest at heart and that when we are obedient, He does not hold back!

I want to encourage women in business, but most of all I want to encourage women to focus first on Christ and then all else will be added unto them! You can truly use the Bible as a manual for success!

I love business, but I love Christ more! This is what I believe has brought me much success through obedience, prayer and a ton of hard work!
