Expatriates are often put into positions of leadership simply by nature of our physical presence or because of a certain number of years lived in a place.

Both experienced and emerging leaders dealing with weariness will hopefully find encouragement in this nugget of pure gold – George Mueller’s description of his daily practice of spending time with the Lord. In his day, Mueller raised the equivalent of millions of dollars in funding, which he used to build and run several large orphanages for many years, entirely by faith. These are Mueller’s words.Susan Jensen
Christian leaders, or any leader for that matter, face a kind of fatigue that can rob our energy and diminish leadership effectiveness. “Decision fatigue” refers to the way decisions degrade in quality after a long string of successive decisions. In other words, the more decisions you make, the more the quality of those decisions declines.Charles Stone

To be unhurried like Jesus is to abandon outcomes to God. You’re not trying to make anything happen. You’re not trying to get anyone to do anything. You’re waiting on God. You’re patient. You’re free to enjoy the moment, love God and be loved by God, and love your neighbor.Bill Gaultiere
How often have we been challenged by the “problem of evil”? If there really is a “God,” then why is there so much suffering and evil in the world? In fact the existence of evil, and our distress over the unfairness of it – this angst over evil ‒ is a strong evidence that there is a powerful God who cares!Jim Brenneman
"What ifs" are a part of everyday life and often, in the church, worry is looked upon as a sin. But the Bible is gentle with anxiety and reassures us of the faithfulness and loving kindness of our Father. We can rise above worry and anxiety by meditating on the promises God has given in His Word and focusing on the love that has never let us down.Rachael Dymski

There seems to be some common characteristics that mark these times of extraordinary fellowship and the palpable presence of God.

The work of creation involved the whole Godhead. No individual is inferior, yet team leadership doesn’t eliminate the value of a principal leader or director. The team together has all the gifts and capabilities necessary to lead effectively.Raj Chelvaraj
