ministry (and life in general) is so often discouraging.
especially when your ministry or church is on the verge of God-sized breakthroughs, the attacks through discouraging emails & conversations is about as predictable as indigestion after eating a garbage plate.
and it’s in these seasons where i remember how critical my encouragement folder really is. some days i want to pitch it all, or i think i should just give up. i truly believe the enemy sometimes wants us to believe that there’s someone out there better suited to do the job God has called us to do.
and that’s exactly when we need to be reminded of his call on our lives and given the encouragement to keep going.
do you have a place where you store and collect pieces of encouragement to breathe life into your soul during tough times?
