Have you ever given any thought on the following: “I am the leader of myself”?
This has been the subject of much teaching in my church lately, and it has been an eye-opener to me in many ways. It is easy for me to accept the thought and even the responsibility that I lead others by example and words, good or bad, whether I am aware of it at any given moment or not. But the leader of myself? Am I really? After much pondering, my answer is a resounding YES. I absolutely lead myself day in and day out. Nobody else does it for me, and nobody else ever will. At the end of the day, I am where I am because of where I led myself. Quite a sobering thought if you ask me.
Where are you leading yourself to today? To which kind of land or emotion? I have much to do today, a full day in every way that matters, but I intend to lead myself in joy through it all. I am choosing what I am choosing with my eyes wide open, and I love the privilege of doing so.
