Remember playing that silly game at recess? It was always fun to be the leader! Truth is, our country, our companies and our homes need good, strong leadership that are led with truth and integrity.
So, we need wisdom each and every day as we lead those that are entrusted to us. Many days our hearts are heavy, we face important decisions and grip tight to our basket-full of responsibilities.
Don’t despair, there is good news! We have a Leader that will guide and help us. Mr. Wise (aka Solomon) knew that all Truth and all Wisdom comes from God. If He is your Heavenly Father, you just have to ask.
I am Wisdom. If you follow me, you will live a long time. Proverbs 9:11
Listen to me, my children! Be wise and have enough sense to follow the right path. Proverbs 23:19
Single moms, I remember the days of wondering what direction to take. It usually wasn’t just one issue but a basket-full of them. I have no doubt, you are facing the same thing. As a leader in your home, you are called to lead. It can seem daunting and you feel a headache coming on because,
- There are the children (whatever age)
- There are financial responsibilities (yes never ending)
- There are ex issues (yes it seems never ending)
- There are emotional issues and loneliness (it’s a toughie)
- There are spiritual issues (there will be seasons of dryness but don’t give up)
Wouldn’t it be better to have an email from God explaining exactly what to do? I would have so appreciated that! I stood facing obstacles and crossroads asking God for wisdom. He hasn’t left us hanging. He gave us pages and pages of wisdom called The Holy Bible. No one can get wisdom by osmosis. It is a determined decision to crack open God’s Word and listen. If you don’t have Scripture at your fingertips you can always go online. http://www.biblestudytools.com/niv/
Make it a point to talk to God throughout the day. Chat with Him about your life issues and bring that heavy basket-full of life issues to Him.When one issue gets solved, believe me, another one will fill its place.
As you gain wisdom, you will become stronger and more confident. You will have happiness that only God can deliver to you.
Pay attention, my children! Follow my advice, and you will be happy. Proverbs 8:32
Don’t give up. Keep reading and talking to the One who will guide you into all Truth and Wisdom. It may take some time, but you can look back and see the Hand of God in your life as you…
FOLLOW THE LEADER!
