“If an egg is broken by outside force, Life ends. If broken by inside force, Life begins. Great things always begin from inside.” Jim Kwik
Who are we at the core? What is the central focus of our life? How does our integrity measure up in a world influenced by deceit and greed?
In addition to today’s thought, when the inside force breaks through we find a strength able to withstand the dangers that threaten from outside forces.
Without a doubt, outside forces will come. Sadly, they are not always directed by expected sources. There are times when those closest to us present the greatest threats. This is where leaders must display the depth of their inner strength.
Here are three words that provide possibilities for developing this kind of inner strength:
1) Trust: We need to trust that God is working in and through our lives to accomplish His will.
2) Conviction: We need a conviction that the direction chosen is the right path to walk.
3) Willingness: Our desire must be great enough to do whatever it takes to reach our goal.
