Leadership is about sharing a dream and giving people a place in that dream. Great leaders paint a picture so real you believe you are living in the dream. Everything is possible! Everything is achievable. And, now comes the clincher, you have a role in making the dream a reality! You carry the confidence and will make the difference between dream state and real living.
When asked to describe what I feel and sense about my piece of the puzzle the key word in the answer is empowered. I am part of the inner circle that has been brought in to hear what is possible. I am part of the special team that carries the authority to act. What I have been task to do is aligned perfectly with the thirsts of my soul. Some people call this using my talents but all I know is that I really want, desire, and long to take on the challenge. I was born for this! I know when can do it. Until this moment I never realized that this was possible. Now I know! Now I can make a difference! Now everything is real!
I have felt empowered at different times in my life. Far too often I find myself struggling for a sense of the dream, my role in it, and even getting excited about the potential of what could happen. When I look around, in staff meetings, people working at their desk and even in casual conversations on the edges of work, I find people searching for the dream, wanting to belong, hoping to make a difference.
The empowerment doesn’t end there. The harsh reality is that “a slave is a transient, who can't come and go at will. The Son [Jesus], though, has an established position, the run of the house. So if the Son sets you free, you are free through and through.” (John 8.35, 36)
Imagine a world and family with unlimited compassion, mercy, and acceptance spilling out on every corner! Imagine a world where you and I make a difference. Imagine today.
