“Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.” 

– Hebrews 13:7

When you abandon your outcomes, you learn to stop being controlling. Instead, you learn to be empowering to others. You are not a controlling person; you are an empowering person. You are the kind of person that sees the best in other people. Even when you feel afraid about what they might do when you give them freedom, you empower them to be their very best. Because of that, people look to you for leadership and encouragement. You continue (God bless you) to be the kind of person who lets go of people so that you can empower them and strengthen them. You don’t push, you don’t control, and you don’t manipulate. You’re the kind of person who empowers people and doesn’t control them, and that makes you a better leader. Some of the worst leaders in the world are those who always try to micromanage everything. If you’ve worked for someone like this, you know how horrible it can be when somebody comes in and says the smallest little thing is wrong, and this is right, and those types of leaders are holding onto everything tight. But that’s not you. You’re a good leader because you believe in people and you’re not afraid of them messing up because you know that when other people mess up, that you’ll be there to encourage them to help them be better.


God, I want to be a leader for you. I pray for the courage and strength to not micromanage, and to stop trying to control everything in my life.


What kind of leader are you?
