An unexpected day
For three years I have led a women's ministry. It has tested and stretched me in every imaginable way, and I have been fiercely committed to following the direction God led me. And today I was removed from its leadership. No, I didn't see it coming. No, I don't agree with the pastor's decision. And yes, I'll grieve over the loss. Isn't life a succession of changes, though? And sometimes I won't move out or on until there is no choice. So - maybe I get a rest, time to evaluate, opportunity for (more) self-examination, searching the Word, seeking the Lord. There will be more ministry. I know there will be more ministry. I'll miss this one. Boy, I will.
