Leaders Don’t Throw In the Towel

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9 NIV So you want to be a leader? Challenges are going to come. Problems will arise and there are times when you will be tempted to quit. John Maxwell says, “If you want to be a leader, the good news is that you can do it. Everyone has the potential, but it isn’t accomplished overnight. It requires perseverance.”  Merriam-Webster defines perseverance as a “continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition.” Giving up is not an option. It’s going to take persistence and tenacity to do something and keep doing it until you see success. John Maxwell further says, “Leaders stretch with challenges. Followers struggle with challenges.  Losers shrink from...

Purpose for the Marketplace

Posted on Jul 11, 2016 in WEEKLY WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT | 0 comments

“And you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of the streets to dwell in.” Isaiah 58:12 NASB Walk with me for a few moments through the waste places of our communities, our cities. Families are in all kinds of trouble. Divorce and child molestation are at its highest. Emotional abuse, drug and alcohol addiction and teenage suicide are at record levels…pain and more pain. Business leader, God has planted you where you’re at and has set you apart and anointed you to be those agents of hope and healing, bringing an expression of the love of Jesus Christ into the hearts of our cities.  You are that bridge of love to the least of these. But time is running out…the clock is ticking. Business leader, you must answer the call. You can no longer afford to get comfortable behind the four walls of your business while the families of our communities are imprisoned in their poverty, fear, brokenness and confusion. Rise up, oh marketplace! For we march not to the drumbeat of this world but to the drumbeat of the Holy Spirit. “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news.” Isaiah 52:7...

“I am going to do something new.  It is already happening. Don’t you recognize it?  I will clear a way in the desert.  I will make rivers on dry land.”        Isaiah 43:19 (God’s Word Translation) Sometimes your business may need to make changes as the market pulls in a different direction. You might need to re-invent your business with new ideas, innovative thoughts and plans.  Don’t fear making changes – take risks. John Maxwell says, “We cannot become what we need by remaining what we are.”  God has your back. He is watching over you.  He is always with you preparing the way. Be reminded that even though you make plans He will direct your...
