A Leader

by on Feb.23, 2009, under Life Poems

Life Poems represent various aspects of how God has actively been involved in changing me into the person He has always intended. A Leader shows the transformed view of leadership from a self-serving perspective to a service-focused one. It is a path I still travel every day, and one that brings great peace and satisfaction in knowing that – slowly – I am being made over into His likeness.

A leader, not a servant
Is what I sought to be
A leader, not a servant
Would be my destiny.

For stardom I was suited
More talented than most
Yet God in His great mercy
Dealt wisely with my boast.

A leader, not a servant?
Is this your muddled view?
What’s a leader, if not a servant?
Asked the One who makes hearts new.

He brought my life true models
Of what a leader is
Men and women, always serving
They were completely His.

Fame was not their portion
They did their work unknown
Yet it was filled with power
That comes only from the throne.

The Lord demands our service
If ever we would lead
For only from a servants heart
Can we truly touch the need.

A leader is a servant
This is the truth of grace
So honor Him, and others serve
That is your rightful place.
