Strength to Lead

Leadership is a difficult business. You have to do the right things, at the right time, with the right people. And, to top it off, there's always a group of "nay-sayers" who criticize your every move. It's no wonder that many people with great leadership potential just can't seem to stand in the face of such challenges. You need strength to lead. Strength that comes from a restored soul and results in a renewed energy. Strength that comes from God.

When was the last time that you escaped the demands of your day and spent time praying that God would help you persevere in the face of your leadership challenges? Can you recall the last time that you opened God's word to meditate on leading "His way?"

John Henry Newman wrote: "Everyone who breathes has a mission, has a work. We are not sent into this world for nothing; we are not here, that we may go to bed at night, and get up in the morning, toil for our bread, rear a family and die. God sees every one of us; He creates every soul for a purpose."

You've been created to lead. But you will never be the leader you were designed to become unless you rely on the true source of leadership strength.

Enjoy the illumination! Becky
