Another Tough Saturday Night
Honestly, I can’t recall a Saturday night that’s not been tough in a long time. Here I am laying on ice and just waiting on my pain to decrease. Also, my nerves have been stirred up once again. There’s no denying that the combo of these things always rattle my self-confidence.
Thank God my medications will soon have all that under control so I can get a good nights sleep. Thank God I’ve learned that I will make it through with God’s help. Thank God I’ve learned that my effectiveness as a pastor doesn’t rely on my strength alone. Otherwise, I would’ve stepped down several years back.
All I know is God keeps prompting me to share my story. I know there is someone reading this who is facing their own battle. You wonder how you can make it through your valley. Your strength is gone and your confidence is shaken. Just know that God’s strength is perfect when your strength is gone. You are not alone my friend in your struggles. Somehow and someway God will take you through whatever life throws your way.
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
