A post by Greg Baird recently caught my eye – especially the opening lines:
We all want to quit sometimes. Discouragement can be daunting.
Hurt. Disappointment. Fear. And a number of other emotions can bring us to our knees. We want to quit. Just give up.
For some of us, a year of children’s clubs is drawing to a close. Some kids’ clubs close over the summer.
For others among the kidmin community, summer approaches all to soon, with VBSs (Vacation Bible Schools, or Summer Holiday Clubs) to plan, volunteers to train and next year’s curriculum to organize as well!
Do you ever feel like quitting, and making this your last year as a kids’ club leader or volunteer, or making this your last VBS?
Or maybe the deluge of discouragement you are feeling right now is coming from somewhere else, other than the children’s ministry.
Whatever is getting you down right now, I hope you’ll surf over to Greg’s blog, read the comfort and challenge that his chosen Scripture give us, and ponder his keys to perseverance.
