That message was exactly what I needed to hear today. I have been working at my “Career” as a Safety Professional for a large Prestressed/Precast Concrete manufacturing and erection firm for ten years. For the past couple of years I have been working a second job which has been my passion driven by prayer and I feel God’s will for me, as a Substance Abuse Counselor and Pastor for Missouri Dept. of Corrections. I am also Senior Pastor and Director of our Ministry Serenity Through Hope which with everything added up has left very little time for much else. Jan. 6, 2005 I was injured at my Full-time job which has resulted in major back surgery that will most likely not allow me to return to the job. Either way I have decided to go full-time as a Substance Abuse Counselor and Pastor for Missouri Dept. of Corrections. This is a great leap of faith for my family and me because of the drastic drop in income. Although “We walk by faith, not by sight” 2Cor.5:7 there are still trying times for Pastors as well, I know we are expected to be the “rock” for our congregations but at times we feel vulnerable also. Thank you for finding and linking to this wonderful message. In Him, Rick

Glad it helped, Rick, and I know what you mean. My family's net worth took a tremendous dive when I went into seminary and ministry, but God has blessed us richly in our hearts and in his Kingdom work. I'll continue to pray for your back, brother. Peace.
