Passion or Presence

One of the dangers of ministry is not allowing your passion to overwhelm His Presence. I'll be honest and say that over the years of ministry I have had to work hard on this one. I love reaching people for Christ and helping develop others to make a difference in their world. There are many times that my passion for doing has overwhelmed having God's Presence.

It really encourages me when I hear great leaders of God who have said they have struggled with the same thing. It is their honesty that encourages me. Often times as leaders we work so hard that we feel we have to hide that fact...BUT...only when His Presence is an overwhelming factor in our lives will we truly fulfill all He has for our lives.
