God Is Always Perfect

I'm sitting in my office about to start my day. There is a lot to do. We got our first Back to School Bash next week. I have to move all of our sound equipment into our room which we just finished. Get some TV's to mount on the wall. Purchase some new sound equipment. The one thing I don't have to do is our youth service this week cause we are combining in with our main service for Paul Ai from Vietnam.

Probably one of the hardest things in ministry is that you don't have a whole lot of people to talk to about the things you are going through. You can't talk to your congregation. You can't talk to your Sr. Pastor. Therefore it is of great value to establish some relationships outside of your circle of influence. With people whom you can trust and probably do the same time of work that you do. For example if you are a youth pastor you could establish a relationship with another y.p. from another city. Perhaps one you could learn from and who has gone through some of same battles you have gone through.

God always establishes moments in places we are to help us gather the people around us that are going to strengthen us. As iron sharpens iron so one man sharpens another. It is important though that we keep close to the Source. The one who is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. He is the one that will never let us done. When we rationalize all God does for us we can always look back and see how He always does it just perfect, even though sometimes we don't think so.
