CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“Not all leaders set out to be leaders. People set out to live their lives, expressing themselves fully.  When that expression is of value, they become leaders.  So the point is not to become a leader.  The point is to become yourself, to use yourself completely – all your skills, gifts and energies – in order to make you vision manifest.  You must withhold nothing. You must, in sum, become the person you started out to be, and to enjoy the process of becoming.”

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Remembering a friend who I was able to spend some time with and learn from his wisdom.  He was a WWII veteran and shared his experiences and relationship with God with me over breakfast each Friday morning.  One morning he shared his thoughts as we talked about God’s Glory. As we usually think of F3 as a lot of physical fitness, I present to you “P3” for spiritual fitness.  My friend shared with me 3 things he thinks about when he thinks about God’s Glory.  God’s Presence, God’s Power, and God’s Purpose.  Let’s remember to be in God’s presence, rely on His Power, and seek His Purpose for our lives.  When we do we will not only experience His Glory but we will glorify Him.
