Have You Ever Wondered What Being in Ministry is Like?


It's like this........
and just when you think you have a grip on what's going on

 




it does this







and this.......






Sure, it can be exhilarating.......but right now in my experience, I don't know which way is up and which way is down.
....and it's exhausting.

:-) And I'm not even the one being payed.

Jen, can I just tell you I have been feeling the same way lately, mostly this past month. Glad to hear I am not the only one. :)

And at the end of the ride you either love it and want more, or throw up and never go on the ride again...

True Kristi...and some of us are suckers who get back on the ride that just made us toss our cookies!

I know it's hard.

Hang in there...

I'm with Laurel/VikingMom (at this point in my life anyway). We just keep getting back in line for the same stupid ride. And we throw up every time.

Just kidding. I know that I couldn't possibly imagine the toll ministry takes. Keeping you in my prayers this weekend.

hang in there. your reward is in heaven and i am sure he really appreciates your willingness to take that ride with him :-)
