Hey, for any of you in the South Charlotte, Matthews, Wesley Chapel, Weddington, Waxhaw, ok, you get the idea.
If you don’t have a church home consider FiveStones Church! We are having 3 services this weekend.
Saturday at 6pm
Sunday at 9am or 10:45am
There will be childcare for all three services.
Been gone for a while, so I am back hopefully to get more regular like I used to be.
Anyway, this morning in my quiet time I read through Luke 11:
My most recent review is “The 360 Degree Leader –Developing Your Influence from Anywhere in the Organization.” by John C. Maxwell. I have always been a big fan of John Maxwell but this book really helped me with changing my thoughts on leadership.
So often I look at leadership as a destination I am looking toward, but this book took the concept and relayed the thought that where ever you are, you can be in a position of leadership. A very basic thought but yet a mind shift for me in how John Maxwell lays the process. So it is not so much what can I do or change to build myself into a leader but I am a leader now where I am so what can I say or do on a daily basis to actually lead out.
To me this is such a key concept. I have often thought I want to lead but how will I be a good leader when I get there. Well, obviously if I am trying to take ownership of things now in the position I am already in with integrity then I will constantly build leadership skills. I may never become a “Manager” but I can be a leader starting right now and hopefully if a management position is in my future I will have been building the skills all along.
I have always been a fan of John Maxwell’s books, they are motivating, humorous and informative, Beyond talent is no different. Leadership is a common theme for Maxwell but this book looks at it though a different perspective, by starting with your talents, maximizing the God given abilities you have.
Just had a sobering thought, have us worship leader/band people gotten so trendy/”cool” that we lost focus?
Well, I was let go from the big local bank at the beginning of the month. I have been in this boat before and God has always provided. But it does make me wonder, is He using this to get my attention for something.
Max On Life Answers and Inspiration for Today’s Questions
By Max Lucado
Well, first let me say, I did not realize how the book was going to be laid out. Initially I did not like the fact that the book was laid out with a question asked of Max Lucado and his answer on almost every page, I was expecting more of a standard flow of reading through it.
