Power of Influence

Hello Friends, I hope you have gained some inspiration from the I've Got Power series of posts.  It is my prayer that we use these insights to enhance and generate a greater display of the Powers we have, not only for ourselves but to enhance and 'light up' the lives around us.

As we conclude this series,  I couldn't think of a more Powerful way to end than to talk about Influential Power. 

Influence is the power to cause changes without directly forcing them to happen.

Can you think of anyone that has been influential, affecting change in your life?

Would you like to exercise influential power?


Here are some key areas we can work on enhance our influence:

Openness:  Share personal experiences; be authentic; show empathy; genuinely care about others and seek out ways to be a blessing (check out link for inspiring article written on Blogs by Christian Women).  Openness in so many ways lead to relationship building as well as strengthening the ones we currently have.

Being influential is like adding salt to a meal you are cooking. Salt enhances and gives flavor, it awakens, preserves, it serves it's purpose. 

As Christians let us operate in our purpose as influencers for the Kingdom.

Matthew 5:13-16 (ICB)

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its salty taste, it cannot be made salty again. It is good for nothing. It must be thrown out for people to walk on.
14 “You are the light that gives light to the world. A city that is built on a hill cannot be hidden. 
 
15 And people don’t hide a light under a bowl. They put the light on a lampstand. Then the light shines for all the people in the house. 
 
16 In the same way, you should be a light for other people. Live so that they will see the good things you do. Live so that they will praise your Father in heaven.


Thank you for joining me on this journey!  This will be my last post for a while.


God Bless, Love you All.
