Having a relationship with Jesus presses all of my “Do not want to be vulnerable” buttons. Knowing him requires learning to follow him, depend on him, surrender to him, submit to him, trust that he knows better than I do and believe that he knows what’s best for me even when I can’t see my way.
Amena Brown from her book Breaking Old Rhythms
Depend on him
Surrender to him
Submit to him
Trust that he knows better
Believe that he knows what’s best
This level of vulnerability is terrifying for most leaders. Seems like an impossibility, but that’s what he’s calling us to.
Where do you need to be a bit more vulnerable today to deepen your relationship with Jesus?
