Last night for the first time I considered stepping aside from ministry. The reality of warfare had not occurred to me while I celebrated and began work. From the beginning I’ve experienced various forms of “warfare” from a few other church leaders. This in and of itself brought immediate discouragement.
I have tried to continue where I am and remain focused more so on the task and not individual personalities and issues. I realize that everyone comes with “baggage.” Leaders are not excluded from this. Sadly we are in front and must lead by example. Our insecurities are revealed whether we realize it or not. We must be healed in order to bring the love of God to others.
With that being said I will focus continually in prayer for my fellow churches leaders, their healing and willingness to endure such healing as is necessary. How wonderful it is to realize that God can use all things for good (Romans 8:28). Even our own personal trials. ”May God alone be glorified in what will transpire in the hearts and minds of the leaders of NCOM!“
