I’ve always been told that as pastors, we preach the sermons we need to hear the most. That was true this Sunday. I’m in the midst of discernment, considering where God is calling me next. And the Scripture readings all lined up to talk about perseverance in pursuing God’s call. Wouldn’t you know.
So I share this sermon with you, in case anyone else out there is feeling stuck, or frustrated, or impatient. The life of discipleship is never easy, but is always lived one day at a time, trusting in God’s love, listening for God’s guidance, open to opportunities to serve our neighbor in God’s name.
Breathe deeply, friends. And persevere.
