We all make an impact in some way. Whether it’s on our family, in our community, or at work, we influence people who are part of our lives. God seeks servant leaders who lead with humility and courage.
When you find yourself unable to move forward in life, it’s probably because you’re focusing on the obstacle rather than the objective. Remember nothing is impossible for God...He specializes in the impossible.
