There's A Leader In All Of Us.

There's A Leader In All Of Us.

Leaders Come In All Shapes and Sizes.

I've always been a fan of follow the leader. It's always been easier to follow than to take on the difficult task of leading. Leadership was never apart of my plans. I was completely content in being a follower. But, God had other plans for me.

Four years ago I never imagined I would be taking on leadership roles. I was completely comfortable. I knew my place in life. I knew I was always meant to be a follower. I was quiet, shy, and soft-spoken. I didn't hold the key attributes for that which I thought defined a Leader. But, God chipped away at my expectations. He molded my heart and gave me a new found confidence and passion for leadership. He placed me in situations where circumstances brought to light that fierce leadership attribute that I never thought I could or would possess.

I was molded into a leader. He shaped me into the leader He knew I could become, and He is still shaping me today. So, ladies and gentlemen, is God calling you towards leadership? You may not realize it, but I believe He is. God calls us to step up and lead. He calls us to lead others towards His love and mercy. You may be someone who believes they are better off watching on the sidelines. But, I believe there is a leader in all of us. All it takes is a little bit of trust, patience, and passion. Allow God to mold you. Let Him use your passions to further His Kingdom.

I've always been a fan of follow the leader. I never thought I could be the one to lead, but God altered my expectations. He has shown me that there is a little bit of a leader in all of us. All it takes to find that inner leader is a little bit of trust, passion, determination, and love from our Heavenly Father.

So, Go Out, Step Up, And Lead.

Whether You Believe In God Or Not, You Will Always Crave A Higher Power

No matter what you believe in, you have your own version of a "higher power."


What is it that you believe in?

We all believe in something, whether it's believing our favorite team is going to win that championship, or that global warming is upon us, or even that essential oils cure headaches. Whatever it may be, we have to believe in something, right?

From a young age, we believed in things such as the Tooth Fairy, or Santa Clause, or that a princess' world was a reality that we could obtain. We were taught to believe in things so far out there that we believed almost anything that we were told. But how about now?

What is it now that you believe in, truly? This world can be cruel, hateful, and even confusing. There's constantly an uproar on social media about he said she said and "that politician is doing what?". So, consequently, we've turned to something that will save us from this place.

Everyone wants something to save them and the only way to do that is to believe in something bigger than ourselves.

This is where the higher power comes in. There's the Christian faith and believing in God or other religions that have their own version of the same concept. There are beliefs in the Earth in forms of Mother Nature or The Universe. There is faith in Chakra healing and how different stones and rocks have certain energies as well as Astrology.

These all sound very different but, they all have one thing in common. Whatever is believed in is always a very loving, caring, and kind power. Its purpose is to guide us and give us the truth.

With how different each person is in today's society, we can all say that we believe in a Greater Love. People push and argue that their way is the right way when in reality, we all believe in pretty much the same concept. So instead of trying to put down someone's beliefs, try to understand it, because I'm sure it is not far off from yours in the grand scheme of things. I have what I believe in and you have what you believe in.

This isn't a piece on how different we all are, but instead, how similar we all can be. We just have to be accepting on all sides, so that we can all celebrate our likeness.
