I have the most stunning emerging leaders in my world. It is my great honour to come alongside them as they navigate the high cost of serving God and loving people, OR serving people and loving God
Because it really is both.
I have said for years, I believe in leadership the greatest lesson that we can learn, is that life is not just about you, but it is about you, but it is not just about you.
This is the paradox of servanthood and spending your life on Kingdom Come.
One of the choices that I watch people have to make is where they position themselves when they feel like they are 'missing out' or 'not enough' or 'overlooked'. This lie can spiral you into deep darkness.
My experience has taught me .. ask God again where is He at work, what is breaking His heart, what is moving His hand, where does He lead people ...and get focussed there.
The best thing that you can do when you feel 'left out of the orbit of God's care and concern' is to serve another! Go be where He is.
Song of Songs 1:6
Tell me where you're working —One whom my soul loves — Tell me where you're tending your flocks, where you let them rest at noontime. Why should I be the one left out, outside the orbit of your tender care?
Ask God where is He working? What is His agenda? It probably NOT on the comparision trap of scrolling social media.
