Ministry through the tears

I wept today. It was one of those moments when you are faced with a challenge larger than you, and a decision needing to be made was bound to hurt someone. It did, and I was left with a the tears. But tears heal wounds whether the hurt inflicted was intentional or unintentional. Healing is ongoing and tears are no doubt immenient. My prayer is that there can be a co-healing, a co-sharing, and that future tears will be co-joined.

Ministry isn’t always pretty. Then again ministry isn’t supposed to be pretty. May we never forget that life is a journey, lived in the arena of grace. We often fail miserably, and it is only by grace that we can go on.
