Personal loss can be one of the toughest things to deal with in life. Whether you are losing a loved one or family member or anything else of value to you, loss is difficult. As a pastor, you are not immune to tragedy or loss. In fact, scripture promises hard times. Understanding that you may experience loss as a pastor, how can you remain effective as a leader? One of the key strategies in doing so is being intentional. This video focuses on how a pastor can be intentional in dealing with personal loss.
Intentionality is a common term used when describing leadership tactics and methodology. It is also a term that is often used when discussing a personal relationship with Jesus. Understand this, how does intentionality play into dealing with personal loss? The reality is, our human minds and emotions tend to be difficult to control. Nobody expects you to feel a lack of negative emotions as you deal with loss. With this in mind, it is imperative that you are intentional as you get back on your feet.
Intentionality, when dealing with loss, allows you to effectively cope with your emotions and feelings. The fact remains, your position of leadership is still intact. Again, you are not expected to bounce right back! We want to help you through the process of bouncing back and getting on your feet again. This is going to require some personal discipline and patience, but the result is worth it.
