Are you a leader or a follower? Do you set plans in motion, or do you like to follow other's plans? Regardless of what role you play in life-
Your role is invaluable. Whether you lead or you follow... you make a difference.
Followers are often looked down upon for depending on others to do all the work. I am here to defend everyone who considers themselves a follower. THE WORLD NEEDS FOLLOWERS. If everyone were a leader, we would never get anywhere. Don't get me wrong, the world needs leaders as well... and I will be the first to admit that I would so much rather take on a leadership role than a following role. It makes me uncomfortable to put my complete faith and trust in another person- definitely something I am trying to work on.
Are you a leader or a follower- or both? Does it make you anxious to trust others? What does that really mean- that we only truly trust ourselves?
I believe in being a follower of Jesus Christ. We can only have a successful relationship with him if we put our complete faith and trust in him and his desires. I encourage you to test the waters- try depending on the Lord for something you usually take charge of... something your are hesitant completely to give to him.
I trust that the Lord will bring me happiness, grace, and love. i trust in the Lord with all my heart. I lead by showing people that God is number one in my life, and showing others that his love can impact everyone's life. I follow by giving my heart to the Lord and dedicating my life to him.
