Dear Powerful Pastor,
THERE IS ALWAYS A SOLUTION is the first of our eighty core values in Help! I'm a Pastor. As I have renewed my mind with this truth, I have found solutions appear that I did not know existed. This core value has probably been the most practical in overcoming hopelessness and victimhood.
According to 1 Corinthians 10:13, God has a great solution for every situation we face, including:
- Financial pressures
- Emotional challenges
- Unresolved relational situations
- Influencing children and youth
- And whatever else we are facing
Abounding in Hope,
Here's what we wrote about this in Help! I'm a Pastor:
"There is always a solution for every situation I face – This is one of the most important core values to have as a leader. It could be used in every scenario in this book, but we will remind you of it in situations which really need a hope upgrade. 'Leaders are brokers of hope,' (Napoleon Bonaparte). Somebody has to hope if transformation, change, and breakthrough are to occur. This truth is a hope anchor."
Listen to this 5-minute podcast from me (Steve) on this core value.
Also, here is a blog post called "There Are No Solutions to This Situation" from Steve's book, Let's Just Laugh at That.
