Dear LWML Leaders,

Confidence in Christian leadership is being grounded in the Word

Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart! (Psalm 32:11).

As leaders, it can be easy to get bogged down in the work of running an organization. Meetings, projects, schedules, and to-do lists fill our calendars. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed with it all.

When those feelings start to creep in, we need to take a step back and remember why we are serving in the LWML. We have the privilege to joyfully proclaim Christ, support missions, and equip women to honor God by serving others. What a blessing and an honor to serve our Lord in this way!

It may be easier to grumble about our to-do list, but let’s be sure to take time to rejoice and give thanks for this amazing mission we are on. The apostle Paul tells us to Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice (Philippians 4:4). When we choose to find the joy in our work, we can Serve the LORD with gladness! (Psalm 100:2).

God's Blessings,
