OK. No need to get offended at my list. This is just an occasional opportunity to “go off” on some things that really get under my skin. I know, I’m supposed to be the “Pastor” and be nice and patient and always loving and understanding with everyone. If you are thinking like that please refer to #1 below! And have a nice day!
Hebrews 4.13 (NLT)
Have you ever tried to hide something from God? Seriously? I know I have, well not intentionally, like not thinking God knew, but more like, “If I don’t talk about it, He will forget about it.” Well, we all know that just doesn’t work.
As a leader it is very difficult to keep things in balance, or at least what “feels” like balance. I heard a great man of God say, “the hardest thing you will ever do as a leader is to maintain balance.” I heard that some 20 years ago, and it still resounds as loud as ever with truth. I have heard others say “balance” is a myth, and anÂ oxymoron for a leader. Leaders go from extreme to extreme, and if they hit all the areas frequently enough with some “extremeism” they are balanced, that’s CRAP! Not only is it crap, it’s down-right dangerous!
As a leader I have a confession to make: I don’t want to be a leader right now! Can anybody understand that? Too many decisions, to many people, too many projects & each and every one is legitimate and in need of attention. So how do I crawl to a place of peace and silence,
