These days can be very overwhelming.
No one expected to be leading in times like these or facing the challenges before us. Yet, here we are.
During an early morning run last week, my mind was full, and my heart was heavy. Beyond the enormous disruption and impact of COVID-19, we are also navigating my wife Lea’s recent breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. This adds a pretty surreal personal dimension to our surreal global challenge.
Before too long into my run, my eyes locked in on a mountain peak in the distance. It was majestic. It was also a reminder from Psalm 121, “I lift up my eyes to the mountains —where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”
I was encouraged by the reminder that my help is the maker of the majestic mountain peaks and all heaven and earth. I also needed to re-read the five separate references in Psalm 121 that declare God is watching over us. In fact, the Psalmist says He’s watching over us 24/7 and will keep doing so forevermore.
God’s truth helps us to live and lead differently–especially in challenging times.
Jesus-centered leadership is especially critical right now. This is why our team at Arrow Leadership has been working hard to create opportunities to resource and support you. We are here for you and want to help however we can.
