Slow down boy

One of the things that my wife and I have been working on is the flow of our life. The past few days has been very intense, very beneficial, but also very draining. I have met with many involved in our youth team, and we are renewed, and united. I am very excited about this. It will be a process to bring health and vitality back to our ministry, but I am confident in God's ability to help us move towards his will. I have continued my running, and this has been very good, and I feel it will help me be more productive and keep a pace in my life. There are a few people in our faith community that still seem to see "their" agenda and way of doing things as premier importance, and causing a ripple, but I am working with God to not react, or point blame, but rather figure out how to help lead as Jesus would. This is really tough, I am not sure what you do when people seem to cause more harm than good. Though I know they, or should I say hope they have the best intentions. Even if not, we must still love them, and yet lead in a way as to not compromise what we feel God has called us to do. Not much else right now, I guess I am a little drained. I love all the friends and people in my life.

I know how you feel, as I am recently dealing wtih some of the same. As the leader of things, it seems that we have an agenda in mind, but we are supposed to! Yet, others that do not share the thoughts and opinions with us as leaders seem to think we are not "open" to their way of thinking. It seems that all too often "followers" do not know how to follow. There are leadership conferences, books, and teachings everywhere, but what is really missing is Followership Conferences! I wonder if Jesus' disciples questioned every move He made? "Why are we going to Genesarat? I don't think we should go there . . ." I know there was a "doubter" so there probably was a pouter! Oh, well, that's ministry. :)
