Here is a post from Veteran's Day that I wrote, but didn't actually post. Until now I thought I was just complaining. But I think it's important for people to know the struggles of ministry and yet great success at the same time. Interesting paradox.

Thank God for good leadership. Those days that you need to lean on someone else to help you through an off day

In Sunday's morning service we had the largest crowd ever, around One Hundred and Fifty first time visitors. We were able to honor over Ninety veterans with music, skits, videos, medals, gift bags and even a Twenty-One gun salute. Very emotional and humbling to think of their great service to our great country. Not a dry eye in the place.

Even in that atmosphere of showing honor and recognizing the heroes of our country, you still have to deal with people. I love people.... I really do. You really find out if you're led by the Spirit of God or your flesh when dealing with a lot of people in one place. Thank God for good Pastors and Leaders.
