The Lord told me it was time to be different. He told me my path would be different, and that is what would make me different. He was going to pull me away from the traditional. He told me traditional is not wrong it was just not my path. My husband and I tried to be a traditional church and traditional pastors, but it never worked out. We put years of our blood, sweat and tears into trying to be what"The Church" expected of us.
Today I face this again. The Lord has asked me to let go of what I have held onto so tightly to take me on a path of another journey. I don't know yet what it is. I struggle as I have released what I held dear to me in ministry. What my husband and I again fought for, and put our blood, sweat, tears and love into.
Life is a mystery and each part of life is unknown. I pray that I will have the faith to hold on to what never changes in life and that is my Rock, Jesus Christ.
Have you been in ministry and the Lord is calling you on another path? It is always scary yet exciting. I pray you will listen for the call, and let the lord release you from the things behind and look forward to what lies ahead.
Philippians 3:12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
