This inspiring blog was written by a young lady named Halima Haile. She speaks about who she considers her leader and why . Read what she has to say and I am sure you will have no choice but to agree that this young woman has more than enough positive thoughts to offer.
A leader in my eyes is someone who can lead and inspire people, not manage and manipulate. A person who can understand and relate to others, someone who can not only motivate me but set an example for me as well. Someone who possesses good characteristics, such as: integrity, dedication of purpose, selflessness, knowledge, skill ,as well as determination not to accept failure. I have only one in mind, and his name is Jesus.
Some may disagree with me not speaking of an actual human being, but in my eyes I follow no human being. There are some I look up to, due to accomplishments but I cannot say that I actually have followed in someone’s footsteps. But the Lord on the other hand fits the description of a leader to perfection. He leads me in more ways than just spiritually. He led such an honest lifestyle that I actually want to be like him, he possesses every possible characteristic in which a leader could have. He has the most influence in my life, Whether or not you are an actual Christian, you still associate Jesus with good; he is called upon by everyone in hard times, and in good times he is thanked.
A leader never gives up on its followers. Whether he agrees with foolish mistakes in their life or not, He will continue to lead because his job is not done until that common goal in which he as a leader and you as a follower share is reached. Jesus has and never will give up on me, people will get weary and stray but he will remain by my side when I am up and when I am down, because I have yet to reach my destination of success.
