It’s a lonely job, leading. There’s a higher standard and a heavier load and I’m sure the voices of disagreement and disappointment ring much louder than the voices of encouragement.
I am so privileged to know and love some amazing leaders.
May you find strength for the task ahead of you,
deep compassion for the ones whose lives you influence.
May you have deep sources of wisdom to draw from
and faithful friends to champion your cause.
May humility cloak you, courage give you strength, and love sustain even in the darkest of times.
May your efforts bear fruit beyond your hopes and may you always know what it is to be led yourself.
If you have a leader who has faithfully and generously led you in your life, profession or family – take time to thank them, bless them or pray for them today.
Hebrews 13 v 17
Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.
