February 2022 Volume 3, Edition 2





by Curt Landry Ministries

A successful leader understands the importance of a lifestyle of excellence, and they put that

discipline into practice on a daily basis. Sometimes it is easy to operate in excellence, particularly

in areas that are important to us or that we are gifted in. Sadly, it is much more difficult to oper-

ate in excellence in areas that are less meaningful or have become tedious. It is easy to operate in
excellence during a dinner party with friends. It is much harder when you are cleaning up after-

wards. You may not care about the dishes, but your spouse or roommates might. When we

choose to operate in excellence in areas that matter to others, and not just to ourselves, God can

use us as an open door to bless them.


Good leaders also recognize excellence in others and help put them in a place to succeed using Inside this issue
their skills and gifts. They also recognize weaknesses in themselves and in other team members
and surround themselves and their team with people who excel in areas where they lack. Page 2: What’s Happening At SGBC

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
’Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
’Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
diggin’ in my own backyard.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hateful-
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors
I am the dream and the hope of the
I rise! I rise! I rise.
