What is Ministry?

Hello everyone,

 

Hope your New Year is off to a great start!  I saw this little writing about what ministry truly is and I had to post it as it spoke to my heart.  I hope it does the same to you.

Blessings in Jesus,

Pastor Charles Wells

Ministry is…

Listening, when you’d rather fix the problem.
Searching for the joy, when it’s easier to say “it’s not fair.”
Helping, when you feel like you’re the one that needs the help.
Telling God, “use me,” when you’d rather ask to be rescued.
Encouraging, even when you don’t understand God’s reasoning.
Hugging when it feels awkward.
Saying, “let’s pray right now,” instead of “I’ll pray for you.”
Serving, when you doubt you have anything left to give.
Comforting, by being the flicker of light in others’ dark caverns.
