Today has been one of the most exhausting Sundays I’ve had in a while but at the same time one of the most rewarding. Preaching for first service, leading children’s service followed by two meetings. There were a handful of challenges today, moments where I’ve found room for growth and improvement but through it all I was able to truly witness fruit in my ministries and see God in it all.
I can’t believe it’s already been a few months since I’ve taken the position as the children’s pastor. Each Sunday I am reminded how much I love doing this and how this is what God has called me to do. But with it being my first time leading children’s ministry I am facing new challenges and difficulties in ministry that I’ve never faced before. The reality is that it’s not easy whatsoever but it’s not about it being easy. Through the hard times and personal struggles I wintess God’s fruit which makes it all worth it.
Today we continued on focusing on Jesus and what He has done for us on the cross and through the resurrection. I taught the kids about repentance and forgiveness and we had a time to write our sins on paper, nail it to the cross, watch them burn away and pray a prayer of repentance. Moments like today, seeing the kids take new steps in their faith really brings a smile to my face and gives me motivation to keep doing better in my ministry.
I saw God today.
