We start out alive....full of hopes and dreams for the Kingdom!
Then we get going....
It’s really exciting...and then.....
IT GET’S HARD.
I’m not sure I would have signed up for this if I knew it would go this way, kind of HARD!
* Frustrations ! ! !
* Dissension from the ones we thought were on our team!?
After a few years of this, ministry starts to leave a heavy toll on our hearts.
Lord, do you still want me here because I’m not sure I can last much longer?
BUT DON’T MISS THIS....
A NEW INVITATION is O P E N I N G U P.
“Beloved, Let me rebuild you for the mission at hand.”
- Abraham signed up for the course when he did not know where it would take him.
- Moses submitted to the process and progressive training.
- Isaiah told of its curriculum.
- Peter humbled himself to come under the Teacher and learn the leadership re:formation classroom.
- Paul let go of the Honor Roll of prestige and relearned a new curriculum “The Course on Christlikeness 101”
Through the ages God has developed His seminary, and it’s starts in the Wilderness, often through the disillusionment of ministry.
B U T if we submit to the process, sign up, and show up for the course what unfolds is B R E A T H T A K I N G
Freedom from within to lead & lead others into
If this sounds familiar, you are not intended to forge this path alone!
Isolation will take you out!
Avoidance will lead to indifference and bitterness.
Worse, lack of intimacy with God and loved ones will corrode the joy of life.
The good news is God graciously provides guides along the way who know this terrain and are equipped to walk some of this path out with you (and there is not just one person but many that show up along the way). I am not the savior here just someone who can guide you to Him (having been guided herself).
Whether its one-on-one Soul Care with you and your spouse, a Potter’s Wheel Workshop with you and your team, a Sanctuary weekend away or something uniquely designed for your needs, I hope to come alongside this process (knowing a little bit about this school of Christlikeness and it’s courses!)

How are you doing in your leadership?
