What's Going On

What is your devotional life like?

How are things at home?

How are things at work?

How is your stress level?

If you're struggling in any of these areas, it will show in your area of ministry. If your private life is in disorder, so will your ministry be in disorder.

You may have a pure desire to minister to others, and maybe you don't feel like your stress at work is hurting your ability to minister on a Sunday, or that your relationship struggles at home are compromising your effectiveness, but they are.

I'm certain your pastor doesn't condemn you for struggling in certain areas, but he certainly wants you to minister from a healthy place. If you need to take a little time off to focus on some areas in your life for healing, talk to your pastor. He'll have your back. And in the will bless your pastor!
