what’s next

By October 11, 2010Church, Leadership

Growing leaders in any facet of life are always trying to answer the same question: “What’s next?”

During a season of growth, it might be tempting to consider settling down, playing it safe.  It might seem reasonable to rest and enjoy.  What appears to be a summit may actually be a plateau.  A good leader will be thinking ahead … “What’s next?”

When we find ourselves in the midst of a struggle, it’s easy to ask “What’s next?” and to expect that the answer means a release from our tension and conflict.  That may be the answer; it also may not be the answer.  The answer may lie in what God wants to teach us during the journey.  Emerging stronger, we ask again “What’s next?”

Asking “What’s next?” keeps us focused on the future — on growing, developing, learning, and maturing.

What’s next for you?
