Working with Leaders

I had a really great meeting last night with our Steering Team that went really late. But it was so good to be with them. Most people have no idea how important that team has been over the life of our church. They have navigated some of the most difficult waters our church has experienced and guided us masterfully to follow God every step of the way.

When we go through difficult seasons, God always opens doors to make good things happen out of bad situations, but we have to see and seize those opportunities. Putting two texts together helps this make sense to me:

"...we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28, NIV)


"Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity." (Colossians 4:5, NIV)

The Steering Team helps keep me looking to God for positive things to happen. They prompt me to ask: "How can I make the most of this opportunity to promote the Goodness of God in the midst of struggle?'

Am I the only one that has to make a conscious effort to do this?
