Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
Today is my youngest Son, Evans birthday! How do I describe Evan, he’s a fearless leader and highly creative. Even though Evan is only going to be 5 today, it was very clear from an early age, that Evan was born to lead. He has a very strong personality, he wears his heart on his sleeve, very emotional but everyone ends up loving him, because he is pure and loving
This summer Evan played his first team sport, baseball, and he loved it. However when he was on the field he wanted to make every single play. When the ball didn’t come his way, he was mad, he voiced his displeasure, sometimes even with tears! I tried to explain to Evan about being part of a team, we all contribute collectively, you support your teammates through good and bad
This is a lesson we as adults continually need to learn or remember as well. Being a leader , doesn’t mean you control every situation. Whether its being a leader of your team, or your family, whatever you are leading when we try to control things too much, we don’t allow others to thrive as well. Sometimes being a good leader is knowing when to step aside or to even remain quiet. Sometimes being the leader is speaking up and encouraging someone, a good leader recognizes the situation
It’s a pleasure being Evans father, his creativity and passion are amazing! I look forward to another great year full of memories and blessings! May God continue to shine on him and bless him in Jesus name Amen!
