 A while ago I was watching my 11-month-old son, he was playing with the cabinet door that’s under the kitchen sink. Swinging it open and then swinging it closed, swinging it open and then swinging it closed. :o)
He winded up getting his left hand trapped in the cabinet door, not being able to pull it free, only because his right hand was pushing on the door.
At first, he was confused, and then he grew frustrated. He tried and tried to pull his left hand free, not realizing that his right hand was the problem. Eventually, he just started to cry, not because he was in pain, but just because he was “stuck”. He didn’t realize that all he had to do was move his right hand.
It made me think, how many times have we been stuck? Only because our right hand was blocking our left hand's blessings.
Wow, think about that. 
For example, when I started the GRATEFUL APPAREL brand I worked extremely hard, 24 hours a day, the first and last thing on my mind was GRATEFUL APPAREL. I would pop out of bed, into the hamster wheel of life and run and run and run. Trapping myself! Not making time for God (too busy) my right hand [My actions] was trapping my left hand [the growth of the GRATEFUL brand]. 
Then one day God spoke to me and said [in his God voice] “If you don’t have time for me now, how could you have time for me later if I allow this brand to grow?”
By HIM taking the time to tell me that was the equivalent of me moving my son’s right hand and freeing his left hand. (You get this?)
Since then I have put God first reading and praying first thing in the morning. I have to admit that the GRATEFUL brand has gone a lot farther with a fraction of the running/energy.
Apply this to an area of your life. Keep a look out so that your right hand doesn’t trap your left hand.
I hope you guys understand me, God Bless!

    this helped me out alot! to move onto something better than what my right hand was doing. i realized my left hand opens the bible and also turns the pages, instead of doing that one thing with my right hand, i will free it by using both to read my bible in that time of need or desire =), Thank you for your story im so grateful it really just lifted me up in my time of need, god bless and christ up!

    i feel the same.. or going through the same. I’m glad i found your website and that you share your faith and that you are selling your shirts, thats cool. For the last past 5 years I have been dreaming where you are now with your shirts, but I didn’t know how to start or where to go.. God has shown me to be patient and wait on him when the time is right…. I still don’t have the shirts but God provided someone that is willing to help me out and believe in my shirts. I seem that im off the track here but checking your website and who you are inspires me to go in with my life and my faith. Grateful also. Keep up the good work continue the race.
