So I’ve had a little time to start processing everything from the CMLeaders conference. If you weren’t there, I would highly recommend you attend next year. I searched through my twitter account to find some of the quotes I posted during the conference. I understand that sometimes a quote out of context may not mean much to you, but this list is just as much for my sake as it is yours. At least this way I have all of my ‘top quotes’ in a single place.

Whether you are a leader leading others in a joint journey, or you are a follower and joining with someone else to assist them in their journey, you have to have a plan. You do not have to have all of the details, but there are certain things you need to know.
Do you have a plan? Do you know where you are going? Do you know how you will get there?
Sometimes God’s direction is not too clear. Just ask Abraham, when God told him to “leave and go to the place I will show you”. God was not specific, but he was clear with his instructions. Abraham needed to leave where he was. God would show him more later. If you are in a place that you do not have specific direction, go with what you know. God will lead you one step at a time. If you take the wrong step, God will show you, and if you take the correct step God will bless you. It is true living by faith. Hebrews 11:8 “By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.”
If you are in this situation, make sure you convey that to those around you, especially if you are a leader. It is easier to follow a leader when there is a clear laid out plan. Remember, even if you don’t know all the details, it is very difficult to follow someone who does not communicate. At the very least, communicate your situation to those around you. Who knows….maybe God is speaking direction to someone around you! Continue reading
