Christine Caine spoke at The Global Leadership Summit last week about leading from a place of hope. Have you ever lost hope? I have, many times. Circumstances can affect perspective and alter our vision. The goal can get lost in red tape. But God has a plan that will never get sidetracked; He is working to bring people to Himself. He doesn’t want anyone to miss eternity with Him!
Christine told the story of going in to an area where human trafficking had robbed women of their freedoms. One asked her, “Why didn’t you come sooner?”
That heartbreaking question rings out from all kinds of suffering hearts around the world, from people who need the hope of Jesus Christ. Is it daunting? Absolutely. But Christine reminds us to focus on that one that needs help; and then the next one, and the next. We live in difficult times, but the Lord placed us into this generation for a purpose. We were born for this moment to proclaim God’s love and mercy to a new generation.
I’m grateful for the opportunity to hear this pint-sized woman with the Australian accent. Her passionate call to risk-taking action was a good jolt to the senses, and a reminder that we are Light-bearers in the darkness!
