“My business is failing.”
With a look of resignation and defeat, Tom uttered those pitiful words to me in early spring. By summer, it had become a reality. His business had failed.
But did it really have to go that way? Had Tom prophesied his business’ downfall? Had his own words caused it to happen?
According to Tom, his business had “been failing” for two years, since the economy made a turn for the worse.
I didn’t realize it at the time, but Tom was speaking prophetic words. He was speaking future events into current reality.
