unexpected, unsolicited challenge was thrust upon me a few weeks ago
The skinny: to develop the leader within me
As the pride-caused shock wore of, I warmed up to the idea of changing my rhythm
To accept the tempo of wonder, of self-assessment, of growth, of preparation
Preparation to touch the lives of others
By positively influencing just as He did
Isn’t that what the Father did, He the best Influencer?
The way of the Upside Down kingdom: starting from the bottom up
A great leader starts from the bottom up.
Am I so willing to start low, forsake pride and seek the betterment of others?
Will I repent of my desire to be seen, to be admired, to be appreciated, to be recognized and praised?
By the world, by YOU?
Will I allow Christ Jesus, my Carpenter, to nail each piece of wood to build up, build me up into a leader after his own heart?
A leader who has what it takes to better mankind.
Better her country, her province, her city, her neighborhood, her family, herself.
Better because of HIM.
As I embark on this summer adventure, may the One with the perspective of eternity help me to see.
A little warning: this will not be a step-by-step improvement plan
It will be a candid journey to deeper waters
To digging deeper in order to see clearer
Will you embark on this leadership journey with me? Do you see a leader in yourself this week?
