STOP! When has this happened? Well, if you are like most singles ministries, there is no such thing as being comfortable. Now maybe some of us personally get too comfortable, even apathetic due to stress and frustration but not with actual singles ministry.
Singles ministry is a constantly changing vessel. As soon as one fire is put out another starts. As soon as you train and build one leader, they marry another leader and leave your ministry.
So my question is...Is our goal to get our ministries to a place of comfort? Comfort for the singles and comfort for you, their leader or pastor? While it is nice to build things to a point to where they are running more smoothly, getting too comfortable can be a false sense of security that the enemy puts in place. God has never called us to a place of comfort. He has called us to a place of ministry, reaching the lost, and growing the saved. With this is a place of a lot of discomfort.
However, with the Lord Jesus as our model, our example and our hope..all things will work out through Him. He is my ultimate and permanent comfort. The comfort of knowing who my Savior is and where I am going when I die. The comfort of knowing I am doing the work He has given me to do. The comfort of knowing He is with me while I do it.
So are you comfortable today?
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Thank you my wonderful prayer team for your consistent prayers.
