At the Helm ~ Reflecting on Leadership

There is a scale of leadership style I envision; on this scale most of us sit somewhere between  the two ends, and at times we swing back and forth according to needs. The two ends are dependance upon themselves, and dependance on others. Good leaders work in a balance between the two swinging back and forth, ebbing and flowing according to the terrain that they tread.

For me I just entered a season where holding on to the proverbial helm is difficult. I am seeing that the seas are getting rockier. I’ve asked my hands to be tied to the helm and for others to take down the sails. In this ship, during this season, I need my crew.

Call it weakness if you want. We just need to make it through the night. And when we do, God will get glory.
