Seeing the potential in others
I have been preparing to share at a youth leaders retreat this weekend and God has reminded me of something I had forgotten. When I was 14 I did a personality profile and one of the traits that came out somewhere in the middle was leadership. At that stage I couldn't really see myself having any leadership gifting. One of the older ladies in the church who was organizing the profiling simply said "I can see some leadership in you!" At a time when I wouldn't dare to believe in myself, she believed in me! At that stage I was far from being a leader but she saw a glimmer of potential and spoke prophetically too it. Now many years later I am going to be speaking to a group of leaders and encouraging them to see the potential in their young people, it is amazing how God works and who he uses!
