After 25 years in the same church, Kathy and I have seen much of what there is to see in serving the Lord. So my goal in posting occasionally on this blog is to open my heart to pastors. I am fine for others to listen in, but the goal is heart-to-heart communication with our preachers about lessons learned in the trenches of local church ministry.
A big battle for pastors is disappointment. In the early years, it often focuses on the shortcomings of others as you encounter them—but as I’ve aged, it has focused on my own most of all. Are you disappointed today? Are you standing over the outcomes of the fallenness in us all and all that comes with that? I get it, I really do.
This weekend we celebrated our 25th anniversary as a church family with over 10,000 people in one service, on a Saturday afternoon at Boomers Stadium in Schaumburg. What song would you choose to close the service? What note of praise to punctuate God’s faithfulness through 25 years? Which singer?
Watch the video below as our own Heather Headley Musso details through song the path to perseverance, even through disappointment.
Eyes on Jesus, pastors—Jesus the One and Only. Look to Him, lean on Him, wait for Him, trust Him…and you will rejoice in Him.
