leading from the great places // Friday E-Devotion

Leadership is sometimes sweet and sometimes tough.  I love being a part of the lives of the precious people of The Community and beyond.
 
Recently I asked God to reveal some things about leadership to me.  I have come to some places since then and found some unusual, some typical and some insightful things along the way.
 
Psalm 43:3 (nlt) --- Send out your light and your truth;let them guide me.Let them lead me to your holy mountain,to the place where you live.
 
The first place was just after taking our son to school, and I noticed the beautiful colors of fall on a hill near our home.  It was awesome, and this thought came to me: all those colors blend together for an awesome scene....just like the church with all its people who blend together who bring God glory and change the world.
 
Matthew 24:42 (nlt) --- So you, too, must keep watch! For you don't know what day your Lord is coming.
 
The next place was at a denominational meeting.  Yep, thats right!  Listening to mission reports and testimonies, and this thought came to me: all of us can do much more together with God's guidance...our impact comes by obeying the call of God and results will be awesome.
 
There have been many more times.  But I share one more as I close!
 
Psalm 71:8 (NLT) --- That is why I can never stop praising you;I declare your glory all day long.
 
Went to the Big Daddy Weave concert last night (we rarely have this kind of opportunity in our community), and God spoke again.  This thought came to me: praise brings out the best in us...lead people to praise God with power and passion and the results will be huge glory for God.

I was reading an article from a pastor that was sharing his heart for his church family and impacting his community one person at a time...
