Dear Fellow Church Servant, This is For You

First, I would like to honor you for your passion to serve the Lord. As a fellow church servant, I would know that this is often a thankless job. Then again, I'm sure you also know that overwhelming peace and joy that you feel every time you serve. Ang sarap 'di ba? It's a feeling that's indescribable probably because it comes from Jesus' sweet embrace.

But we aren't perfect. We aren't ok every single day (yes, including Sundays). We get tired. We get sick. We get hurt. We get frustrated. And when any of these happens, we easily succumb to our frailty. We whine. We complain. We sin.

You know what? That's ok. Because we are humans. It's only by the grace of God that we get the courage and the strength to serve Him despite our frailty and imperfections. Take note, even those holding top positions in the church go through this. So, this isn't weird. You are perfectly normal.

Everytime you feel tired and frustrated, just remember Who you're doing all these for. It's not for your churchgoers. It's not for your church elders. It's only for Him alone.

And every time you go through this, don't feel bad. Acknowledge all your weaknesses and surrender your woes to God, our Father. Pray and worship even at your worst. Ask for help from your physical and spiritual family. And most of all, rest. Once you're ready, go back and serve.

I'll be praying for you. Pray for me, too.

Be blessed always!
