Paul Oyemade has this to say to you about the roughness of tough decisions; "when you make tough decisions that sit right with the moral compass within you, that’s your conscience and you believe in the long run will be profitable to all concerned, learn to stay the course. Being successful in life is a combination of three qualities: insight, foresight and courage. There is a place in everyone's soul where you know you are doing the right thing by taking this step, always be true to that place.
As a leader, understand, the fear of man has no place in leadership. Blinking at the noise of opposition is manifest weakness. Those who want to be in the good books of all can't lead, Jesus termed those false prophets. Always do what is in the best interest of the collective at the expense of a few who think they are in control and God will honour your intentions.

In the movie ‘War Room’ I agreed with the line that says ‘the world is chaotic today because people are always fond of leaving Jesus out’. Don't do same. Hebrews 6:19, Colossians 2:5. Have a blessed Sunday. Cheers!
