Keep Perspective!

It can be difficult to keep focus and perspective when we are serving in the day-in day-out work of children's ministry. This is the reason it can be oh-so easy to lose perspective and become discouraged or worse, bitter. But, I am here to tell you, do not lose heart! Hold on! While there are times it can be difficult to believe; or at the very least, confusing, God does know what He is doing and He does not waste anything which happens in our lives! Even better . . . He does have a plan and His plan truly is for our good!

I have had the opportunity to serve in ministries over the years which were places of grace and joy! Places where I loved serving and where I experienced deep joy in serving. Sadly, I have also served in ministries where I was taken advantage of, where there was not much joy and there was great frustration.

However; looking back, I can see so very clearly how God's hand directed and protected and He equipped and trained me so I would be ready for the opportunity He has blessed me with now!

So, if you are somewhere where the joy is difficult to find and the frustration abounds; please hold on! Do not give up! Continue to be faithful to do what you know God wants you to do and the day will come when you will be able to look back and see so very clearly how God's hand directed and protected you as He equipped and trained you for opportunities He will bless you with!

Keep serving! God does NOT waste anything and He DOES have a plan!
