Today I want to invite The Good Shepherd and the Good Leaders into my life and allow all the faith hope and love they bring to overflow into the lives of those around me.
So today I’m going to speak about The Good Shepherd in a way that invites and congratulates good leadership.
What can we affirm here? In what way can we celebrate the Good Leaders in our life.
I’ll tell you one thing I’ve learned over the years (and from many bible stories) is that the Good Shepherds aka Good Leaders are rarely the elders in our lives. When you’re looking for guidance (or when we’re not) God will not hesitate to use a child, a stow away, a woman, our enemy whatever he deems best to be the Good Shepherd in our lives. I welcome that.
I am grateful that the Good Lord will lead us to quiet waters. I’m grateful that the good lord will use whatever it takes for us to listen to get us there. I welcome Good Shepherds in my life whether it be man, spirit, or the good word written from ancient times. Thank you to those of you in leadership who are completely themselves leading the way to more authentic life styles.
I will continue to rely on the fact that the Good Shepherd within me will always lead the way.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,Psalm 23:2
