Got a flyer from “Care for Pastors” the other day and it had some statistics about pastors that I thought others might be interested in. When I used to get things like this before I was a pastor, I thought they were a stretch. Now after more than 10 years and meeting and talking with pastors from all over, I no longer do. It may sound self seeking but take care of your pastors as they look to invest into you and your families lives.

My daughter (4 years old) stresses a lot when we are driving places because she wants to be in control but doesn’t know anything about driving. This morning, I was driving her to grandma’s house and she got all bent out of shape because she felt I missed the road she thought we should turn on. She couldn’t see ahead that we hadn’t gotten to it yet. I asked her to trust me but she continued to stress until we turned on the road and she saw everything was ok. It was a big waste of stress and fussing on her part if she had just trusted me. Made me wonder how many times I do that to God….. the turn in the road is just ahead…..

 Lately I have been doing more blogging on our church’s website. I’m in no way leaving my site here, it’s just we are in a 30 day period of time as a church and I have been writing daily devotional blogs as part of our journey. If you are interested in them, you can see them here. Below if the one from yesturday that I wanted to share as it seems things are tough on a lot of people right now. Thanks for stopping by!)

 

 

2 Corinthians 1:8-11 (New International Version)

“We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life. Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.”
