One of the questions I get asked pretty often is “who am I listening to now?” I wanted to do a quick journal entry about this very thing. Here are some of the voices in my head. These are not in any particular order… so head over to Youtube and look up some of these artists, leaders, preachers. Also, be sure to also take a look at My Currents – which has an exhaustive list of people to watch out for and Voices that speak to me.
So there you have it — these are the Voices In My Head ministering to me.. some are near, and some are from afar.
Who are the VOICES in your head?

This month marks 13 years in ministry as an adult. In the past 13 years, I have learned a lot and wanted to share with my readers and friends some of the greatest leadership principles and life lessons I’ve learned. Not by any means am I saying that I am perfect in all of these things, but it’s something that I am consistently doing or improving in. All of life is a process of and for growth…

1. YOU CAN’T TELL ME NOTHIN
“Pride is the only disease that makes everyone else sick besides the person that has it.”
2. SO INSECURRRR
I know a leader that used to walk into a room and say to himself “everyone here loves me and wants me here”……………… until he was convinced of it.
Sometimes you gotta convince yourself of the truth until you believe it!
3. UNRESOLVED ISSUES
“Sin won’t destroy your life… but silent sin will.”
If you keep sweeping stuff under the rug and not dealing with the issues of life, eventually that stuff will catch up with you.
These are the things that can slow you down in seasons when you should be running hard after what’s in your heart.
4. CAN’T CONTROL YO TONGUE
“Who can control the tongue?” – James
Nothing opens and closes doors for you like the words coming out of your mouth.
5. BELIEVE YOUR OWN HYPE
The worst leader is the one who’s more loyal to their gift than what they are a part of.
The leader who’s impressed with themselves is rarely impressed with others.
I’m always listening to the leader who raves about the gifting of others!
Don’t ever become the “looking for the next great opportunity” leader.
These leaders are always looking for the #landofopportunity because they’re convinced if they get there… then things will really take off. It never does 🙁
Stay faithful where you’re at and watch God blow you away.
7. CAN’T STIR IT UP
Don’t go stale.
Don’t go dull.
Don’t get routined.
Don’t fall asleep on the job.
Stir up the gift of God within you! Stir up your faith!
To say thank you is to admit that someone else provided this…
Can’t think of anything that pleases God more than the “attitude of gratitude.”

From chadveach blog:
“5 things that God requires of people who lead in the church…”
(as written by Paul, see 1 Timothy 3)
1. Spiritual Preparedness
– BE READY. AT ALL TIMES.
In other words, leadership doesn’t come with a punch card. You don’t clock in and out.
Jesus was known for doing more work outside the church than in it.
Gods looking for people who STAY READY!
2. Self Control
– RESTRAINT. SOBER MINDED.
In other words, if you can’t control your tongue, emotions, temper, spending and eyes… how can God trust you with His people?
Self control (meekness) is like the San Antonio Spurs… underrated, overlooked… but CHAMPIONSHIP MATERIAL.
3. Social Graciousness
– COMMON SENSE. COMMON COURTESY.
In other words, how we treat people matters to God.
Socially, you should be able to do well in any environment.
Paul did. Jesus did. Why can’t we?
Often times what separates a good leader from a great leader is behavior.
4. Domestic Order
– HOME LIFE. WHAT REALLY MATTERS LIFE.
In other words, if you can’t take care of HOME, why would God trust you with CHURCH?
God is not a God of confusion. How confusing to have someone represent God who’s home life is a disaster… but their church life is #DOMINATING.
God is stoked when our home life matters to us as much as it matters to Him!!!!!!
5. Holy Living
– SET APART. A GRADE ABOVE.
In other words, God asks us to be set apart… because He is set apart.
Holy living looks different to each person. I’ve learned you have to live by “your own convictions”, not anothers.
I would suggest that you look into the bible to find out what the standard of HOLINESS truly is…
