My Plans Are Your Plans
This is written for all wise servant leaders and those who ache to do God’s will
“Here am I,” said Mary;
“I am the Lord’s servant; as you have spoken, so be it.” Luke 1:38 (NEB)
I surrender Lord. My plans are your plans. My wants are your wants.
Though I have doubts and fear; I trust you will show me the way. But count on me Lord to seek clarifications as I pray daily to be “at-one-ment” with you.
I need not fear for my sustenance; my needs are to fulfill the needs of those who call out in the “wilderness.”
I surrender Lord. My plans are your plans. My wants are your wants. All I ask Lord is that you offer help along the way.
While Jesus was still speaking, some men came from the house of Jarius, the synagogue ruler. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher any more?’’ Ignoring what they said, Jesus told the synagogue ruler, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.” Mark 5:35-36.
This scripture brought to my remembrance the struggle I had trying to define leadership. I wanted leadership to be more than just a word; I wanted and needed the word, leadership, to be an ongoing living and active statement. Then I realized that leadership is about faith; it is about not limiting your possibilities to the visible. It is about drowning out the noise and believing that there’s more to life than what meets the eyes. Then it came to me: “Leadership is unlimited when you believe in something bigger than yourself.”
What is your definition of Leadership?
