When the circumstances of my life were plummeting, I was like a deer in headlights. I had no clue what to do. I knew that divorce was imminent, and that divorced and pastor don’t do well in many circles. I immediately began to seek counsel. I was sure that all the “religious professionals” would tell me to quit and get a job scraping gum off school desks or something. The amazing thing was they all said, “Don’t give up on your calling!” For the first week, I was going to give up on ministry and simply exist until I died. Then came a breaking point. I told God that I will continue to serve Him, and if He didn’t want to use me then He could stop me. The way ministry is expressed in my life has taken on different expressions, but I still have not given up on my calling. The modern day Pharisees and Saducees may read this and criticize, but I can’t quit on what God birthed in my heart many years ago.
God has a word for some reader today. You are ready to quit on something God has put within you. It isn’t happening fast enough for you (I understand that feeling). God promised Abraham and Sarah that they would have a son named Isaac. He didn’t come fast enough. This is a word for me too. God follows through with His promises. We must be faithful, even when the timing kills us. All I know is I CAN’T AND WON’T QUIT!!!!!!!
