When Conquerors Wimp Out - #6817
Ask God for the courage to confront, even when you're young, even when you're single. Deal with issues while they're small. Face the conflict; don't try to bury it. When a conqueror on the battlefront learns to be a confronter on the home front, then he's really being a man.
The power of introverts - use them in your team or nonprofit
Susan Cain argues that introverts bring extraordinary talents and abilities to the world, and should be encouraged and celebrated. Our world often prizes extroverts – but Susan makes a case for the quiet and contemplative. Often, introverts are excellent strategics, planners, leaders – and evangelists - because they may be good at listening.
Being a Winning Head Coach - #6787
Start spending some time getting your family together spiritually and getting with the Lord together. Get them in the Lord's presence together. The only way you can fail at this is to not try.
Generals With Secrets - #6782
The moment a man is most powerful is when he finally realizes his powerlessness to fix himself when he bows his knee at the foot of Jesus' cross. You will not conquer until you've been conquered.
Being Led By the Hand - #6746
Why don't you get you out of the way? Grow up to the point where you will let your Father feed you, let your Father carry you, let your Father lead you. You're never stronger than the moment you reach up a trembling, empty hand and say, "Father, lead me by the hand."
The Pace Car in Every Race - #6615
If Adam isn't right, the garden isn't right either. There's stress, conflict, confusion, decisions not made if the man who is supposed to be leading isn't doing it. Think about it today if you happen to be on Adam's side of the human race. Could some of your frustrations be because you've been neglecting your God-given responsibilities to your wife, to your children, or to be the spiritual leader?
Climate Control - #6589
You're a leader. You control the climate whether you realize it or not. So, make your room, so to speak, feel like it would if Jesus were there, because if you're a Christian, He is - in you.
None of the Above - #6543
I've been on some flights where I wish I could have picked the captain in the cockpit. I've never been able to pick the pilot for my flight, but I got to pick the pilot for my life, and it's Captain Jesus. He's the one Pilot who can bring you in safely...no matter what happens.
The Leadership Lifestyle - #6524
God has called you to some measure of leadership and the responsible lifestyle that goes with that. I think that's an awfully powerful incentive to be all you were meant to be in Christ. It's a good thing; a good reason to live up to what Jesus wants all of His kids to live up to. But He has put trust in your hands. He's put His reputation in your hands. He has made His Kingdom vulnerable to you.
The Great Cheerleader Shortage - #6412
The church is experiencing right now a major cheerleader shortage. And you could be a part of the Aaron and Hur brigade that's part of the answer. Maybe not a player, but you could encourage a leader; you could stir up support for a leader; you could offer praise to someone who has a bucket full of criticism already. Don't wait till the funeral to give it to him.
