Exhausted is the word many leaders use.
Exhausted from courageously leading others through a global pandemic. Exhausted from gently guiding their team during divisive political seasons. Exhausted from carefully navigating the changing schedule of working remotely.
When not adequately dealt with, exhaustion can lead to overwhelming frustration and little motivation. The result?
Leaders are losing heart in leadership.
So how can you deal with exhaustion so you do not lose heart in your leadership? The answer is found in Jesus's words in Luke 18:1. Jesus said, “And He told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart.”
Within the parable and the stories Luke describes in the remaining narrative of chapter 18, we learn three effective ways leaders can avoid losing heart in ministry.
Are you a leader facing exhaustion? Prayer is the key to not losing heart in the middle of exhaustion. May you rest in the all-knowing, all-present, all-powerful God and not lose heart.
