blinding moments

there are some whose very burning to "be in ministry"
blinds them to the ministry
God already has them in

risk moment

every now and then I arrive at a "when push comes to shove" moment -
always a challenge -

do I really believe what I am always telling others?
do I do what I encourage others to do?

never easy
especially when the old rejection snake sticks up his ugly head ......

it is time
to risk relationship and
say the hard things
point out wrong behavior
ask questions that need to be asked

all boils down to trust really

this relationship is a beautiful gift from God
and there are responsibilities in receiving such a gift

touch carefully
but have a greater concern for the wellbeing of another's soul
than for our relationship
