I haven’t been a Pastor very long. It will be one year in March. Really enjoying the journey though, doing my best to become all that God would want me to be. The people, the vision, the challenge, the determination, the prayer, the study, the believing God for change, growth, to make a difference in Darlington.
Despite my early days I think I could empathise with Moses as I read Numbers 11:11-15 and wondered does every Pastor feel like this sometimes? Frustrated with ‘the people’ that you have given by God, overwhelmed by the burden, of carrying the vision, of carrying and leading them, the disappointment that they don’t always seem to understand what is going on?
I think that God just heard the cry from the heart of a man who wanted to do his best. I think God never intended for Moses to carry it alone and was always ready and willing to bring others on board to help with carrying the load. It needs to be the same with us as Pastors…would you agree?
