As you begin this week I have a question for you. Is ministry becoming an overwhelming challenge for you or are you staying balanced emotionally and spiritually?
Does this ever sound like you?
“I can’t do this anymore.”
“Ministry is not for me.”
“I want to leave my pastor husband.”
“My husband is a pastor, but I don’t want to be a pastor’s wife.”
“This is too hard.”
“I can’t please anyone.”
Satan would love nothing more than to defeat you by whispering to you:
“You’re not making any difference.”
“You’ll never be able to minister to that person.”
“All that criticism? That’s who you are.”
“You’re a failure.”
“Why do you even try? Those people don’t even care about you.”
“God isn’t using you.”
“You shouldn’t be a pastor’s wife if you struggle with that.”
“Your kids aren’t acting like pastors’ kids.”
The list could go on and on. I pray you are not allowing your emotions or Satan’s lies to control your mind and cause you to become discouraged. Yes, ministry is hard, but God promises us He will go with us through whatever He allows to come our way.
