This coming Sunday is “Pastor Appreciation” day and I want to make sure you are included in that appreciation.
Many times the pastor’s wife gets left out and many times feels unappreciated. But I want you to know you are valuable to your husband’s ministry and should be appreciated as much as he is.
If you are involved in a ministry where the church family includes you in the Pastor Appreciation Day, that is awesome; but if you are not, please don’t be discouraged because we appreciate you and many in your church do as well even if they don’t voice it out loud. And most importantly, God loves you and sees your servant’s heart and He will bless you for your dedication.
I want to encourage you to allow God to fill your heart today with His love and appreciation as you meditate on the following devotion:
Sit quietly in My Presence while I bless you. Make your mind like a still pool of water, ready to receive whatever thoughts I drop into it. Rest in My sufficiency, as you consider the challenges this day presents. Do not wear yourself out by worrying about whether you can cope with the pressures. Keep looking to Me and communicating with Me, as we walk through this day together.
Take time to rest by the wayside, for I am not in a hurry. A leisurely pace accomplishes more than hurried striving. When you rush, you forget who you are and Whose you are. Remember that you are royalty in My Kingdom.
Psalm 37:7a “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him.”
Although we are all human and desire recognition and appreciation, it really doesn’t matter what man thinks but most importantly what our Lord and Savior sees in our service to Him.
Be encouraged and know you are appreciated!
