Four years ago, I felt like this. My marriage was over. Ministry seemed impossible. I didn’t think I would ever find a job outside of a church, and I felt like no woman in her thirties and in her right mind would marry a man who is called to ministry. My perspective was all screwed up. I now have a wife who accepts and supports my calling, a ministry where God is changing lives, and a beautiful blended family.
This post was prompted by a set of verses that God reminded me of a few minutes ago. I will end with this passage and let God’s Word give you hope.
“We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.”
2 Corinthians 4:7-9 NLT

Wonderful! Things have looked hopeless for me too at different times in my life. But God has always seen me through and brought good out of evil.
very encouraging… thanks… I see this again and again in peoples lives, including mine… I am thankful to GOD for his many mercies
Perfect words! I’ve had a rough year, but I’ve held on tight to God’s promises. God does see us through in all circumstances!
Keep clinging to those promises! You are right. He does see us through.
Very encouraging. I am sorry about your marriage that ended. That is always a traumatic experience and I appreciate you sharing the pain that you experienced. It is very humble of you. My wife and I have hit hard times, but through the Grace of God, he continues to deliver us. Nothing is perfect on my end and I know this is true on your end, but sometimes sharing about what we have overcoming can save the souls of others. Thank you!
Amen dude and I hope you have had an awesome weekend so far! A really encouraging post so thanks for posting it. A great peace of scripture as well. We are never abandoned by God!!! Let me know what you need prayer for this week
