I'm writing so much that I feel like I'm losing my personality. Locked up in a cave somewhere, not taking phone calls, barely checking email, and having major retina burn from looking at a computer screen all day! In the midst of that, God knows just what I need.
Wes Roberts, Wes' blog is here, is someone God has recently sent into my life as a mentor. Just when I need it, here comes Wes with an encouraging phone call, or an uplifting email at just the right time. You know when there are people brought into your life who are 'divinely intersected' for the right reasons? It's like you know they're supposed to be there and they will be there for the long haul. That's Wes in my life. And I'm so thankful for him.
We all need mentors. Many of us have friends, but we need mentors! People we allow to speak into our lives even when some things are hard to hear - because they want to make us better. They have a 'sixth sense' about when to pursue us and give our live a boost just when we need it. We rely upon their wisdom and their love to get us through to the next phase of life.
So, let's practice the "Be the change you seek to produce" model. Need a mentor? First be one to someone else. Call them, encourage them, speak life into them. Be what you need and someone will be what you need!
