However, it is very unfortunate for those in church leadership positions to suffer this fate. Many times, leaders are not only alone but are also lonely-starved for empathy-for someone to understand their struggle. In the church, there should be a safety net for leaders to be able to express their conflict between their carnal and spiritual nature. Too often, they seek solace in the wrong people and the wrong things in an effort to relieve the spiritual, mental and physical constraints placed on them by the position of leadership. Much like an extra-marital affair, when a spouse is overwhelmed with the pressures of marriage, he/she may seek fulfillment in unhealthy sources. Regrettably, the encumbrance of living two lives becomes increasingly unsettling which leads to detachment and ultimately to failure. Nevertheless, this is part of the process needed for growth. In order for grass to grow, it must be fertilized and we all know the best type of fertilizer-mess. The biggest mess of your life precedes your greatest blessing. In this book, you will read several accounts of leaders who have gone through a process of reproof and have awakened to a better life than they ever thought possible.
