The Lion’s Den

Sometimes a lion must go into solitude so that he can become a better leader for his pride. This analogy pretty much sums up how I need to deal with things. I've been putting a lot of energy into things that are outside of my control. I'm starting to lose track of what's essential. So, I need to back up and disappear into the lion’s den for a while. I need to get my mind back to where it was.

 Complete focus. No veering off course. There is a lot that needs to be done in my life, and I cannot afford to stress myself anymore. There are too many people counting on me now, so failure is not an option. My responsibility is to inspire and lead by example. So, I will be back in the den, getting my next move ready and training my mind, body, and spirit. I will be growing faster, stronger, and wiser every day, so I will be more excellent than I ever was when I do return. I’ll be the leader I was born to be. And I’ll be ready. I've gone to the den before, but it’s been to cope with life, and it was more of me trying to take a break from the world. Now I'm just getting ready for success. I know my demons are going to be waiting for me once I return. I'm not worried. They will be conquered, too, along with any other obstacles that remain for me. I'm preparing to take this life to a higher level.

But first, I need to go back into the lion’s den.

"I can do all things with Christ, which strengthened me."

-Philippians 4:13
