Pastor's taking the heat

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

Yesterday I came across a powerful post by Phil Pike dealing with Pastor's and their struggles. It hurt me to read it mainly because I am in the midst of this massive struggle. I'm not posting this for sympathy but to hopefully open some people's eyes to the very real struggles that pastor's face. Honestly, when I accepted my current position - I simply had no idea what I would face and the dangers it would pose to my health, family, ect. I'm afraid it's difficult for most people to truly understand unless they have been there. We are in the midst of a spiritual battle and your pastor and his family are on the front line. Enough said for now.

Here's the link to Phil's Post - it's well worth the read!

Been there more than once I am afraid. Praying for ya man!

Ya might also check out Swerve if you haven't already.

Also, this last weekends message- The Vow- from Craig G hits on a portion of this as well.

I'd like to make a trade with you.

You pray for me and I'll pray for you.

Hang in there man.

One day when the tares are bundled up the wheat will shine as the sun. -- Matthew 13:43.

(In other words, the faithful will live in an unbelievable place where there is no sin.) Some days that's what keeps me going.
