Dear Young Pastor's Wife,
Four little lessons that I have learned (the hard way)
I know you feel a bit overwhelmed at times, like you are in over your head. People can be hard to deal with.... filled with their own selfishness and have lots of opinions about you or your husband. Older people can be tough to deal with in the church, and you may feel intimidated by them. I will spare you the details of many a tear shed by pastor's wives over the 'saints' as they are called. But here are 4 things to let sink in that pretty head of yours....
1. God chose YOU to be married to HIS servant. He had a reason and guided your destiny towards this. You didn't pick this life for yourself. God did. Rest assured He knows what He is doing.
2. It's not about talent. It's about trusting God to do what you cannot. You don't have to know how to do it all. God will lead you and take charge when we let Him.
3. Remember it is God's church.... not the peoples, and not ours. So it's not our place to manage everything that happens. Let God stay in charge of His Church, and stay in your role.
4. Remain the supportive wife to your husband... there are many who can do all sorts of things in the church, but only ONE person can take care of the Pastor - and that person is YOU.
Hope this little note helps...
