Monday Morning

I may regret this posting, but Monday mornings for ministers are a real struggle. We look back on the previous day with a lot of "glass half empty" thoughts. Not who came to worship, but who didn't, and why (we can only guess). Why aren't we (as a church) growing? What am I doing wrong? Would someone else make a better pastor? And then we grab our stack of commentaries and slog on, preparing another sermon that we hope may make a difference, and schedule our visits to folks in need, all the while hoping that God will help us be effective and somehow encourage us.

Don't be discouraged about those not coming to church. You plant the seed and God does the rest. You are ministering to those in need, and you do encourage us. Be assured that you are where you are supposed to be right now, doing God's work. I am so happy that you are here, with us, as we try to live a life that honors our Father.
