What is Your opinion? Soldiers on GOD's battlefield get weary; but the Word of God encourages. One of the problems is: Everyone is not into the Word as they should be; probably None of us are. Nevertheless, if we read the Word, attend Bible Study, go to Sunday School or/and listen to and receive the Preacher's message on Sundays, Saturdays, or other days, there should be SOME understanding of what Ministry is all about. First of all, IT'S ALL ABOUT GOD Who sends People to do His Work! When a person is "called" - to preach, teach, do media work, write, Whatever He calls one to do, and they KNOW they've been called, they work to please GOD First... but, because we are all "people" - there will be issues. Think about it though... there were 'issues' among the Disciples, and they were With Jesus!

It is so easy to get frustrated when working with people, but you Must Remember... it is Not about you or them, it's about GOD! As a soldier on this battlefield, i have begun to get weary. You do what you've been called to do, to please GOD and be obedient, but people are right there: the naysayers, the constant changers, those 'project managers' with new ideas that sway the leader(s) into thinking another person is better for the job. But you Know you've been called! My Father has given me a message to share with you... "REST IN HIM." Only GOD is in control. Remember, "No weapon formed shall prosper..." - it may be formed, but it will not prosper.

Trust me, i'm preaching to the choir of which i am a disciple. We must remain strong IN THE LORD. People will always be there to 'tear you down' or make you feel incompetant. But when you KNOW you've been called, STAND FIRM! TRUST GOD! HAVE FAITH that HE will bring you through each storm. It's about finishing the race. What do you think? Why do you believe that Christians 'quit' ministry?

As we move through 2012, embarking upon a new Conference Year, we are blessed with a new leadership team: Bishop Adam Jefferson Richardson, Jr. & Dr. Connie Speights Richardson. The Bishop's first message, preached at our Christian Education Leadership Congress in Orlando at The HRosen Shingle Creek Resort, is one that should encompass a universal desire of all Disciples everywhere: "Lord, I Want to be a Christian (in my Heart)." Bishop Richardson's message culminated the powerful theme of CELC: DISCIPLESHIP. As we move forward through the Annual Conferences, let us continue to pray for & support our Episcopal Leaders and each of the conferences, and look to The Holy Spirit for guidance, that the work we have done & will do, will speak for us and through us. We thank God for sending Bishop & Mrs. Richardson to the Eleventh District and pray their strength in all things. -AJSG- 11th District Lay Org's DoPR

The previous post reminds us that life is short. We must embrace each day that GOD gives us to the fullest! Follow His path, do what He wants you to do. You can only know if you talk with Him. Remember to communicate daily. Resolve issues with people because you are not responsible for how people treat you, but you are responsible for how you treat them! Forgive, forget and move on! LET IT GO! Enjoy the rest of your year! Live by Philippians 4:4-9
