Last week one of my best friends once again knew exactly what I needed to lift my spirits up…An afternoon with girlfriends. She invited me over to her home to have lunch and then to enjoy each other’s company while we “sit and knit” Only, I didn’t know who any of these women were and I’m completely ignorant in the knitting arena, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
Ask Jackie: Unexpected Blessings
When I look at the ugly truth about my own sinful nature and insecurities, I can become very depressed and discouraged. I then feel like I’m failing as a mom, wife, friend and co-worker. There are days when I look ahead at the tasks in front of me and I ask myself, “How am I going to get through that?” or “What if I say or do the wrong things?” or “Life is going to get more difficult so how am I going to deal with it?” Those days are pretty hard to get through and I just want to climb into bed and go to sleep. Looking back, that’s probably what I should have done.
This week I want you to be the leader that you are…but to lead with a servant’s heart!
