Leadership

Leadership is a funny thing - the more you lead, the more you're asked to lead. Kind of makes me laugh...

I've lived in KS for 10 months now. I've been asked to lead in 3 different groups in which I participate. One of them is a committee chair, one is a group leader, and one is the director of the whole organization. Interesting that they all come at the same time...

On one hand, I'd like to believe it's my superior God-given skills that make these people think I will be a great leader in each of these capacities. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure 67% of it is I'm "fresh meat" and I haven't been worn out in these areas yet like the rest of each group!! I do believe in one instance God has specifically directed someone to ask me to lead - that would be in the director position - because I know this girl well and I'm sure she (and others) have bathed it in prayer. In the other areas, God is teaching me and growing me in ways I never thought He would... whether I like it or not!

So for now, I remain in limbo about the director position because I haven't heard from Him on it yet. As for the others, I have already obligated myself to them (not knowing the director position would come). One is large and one is small, but they are both work. I do like to be busy, though, so for now I'm leading a Bible Study and a Cookbook Study... one day I'll let you all know how they turn out:)
