When Pastors wives connect, it is a powerful tool trhat blesses each one! Ideas..... Experiences.... Prayer requests..... Testimonials..... Heart aches...... Shared opinions... Private laughs! Each lady adds depth and value to the relationship. Find a peer to connect with, my friend, it will add strength to you.
Stop trying to make the ladies in your church your close friends. They cannot provide the wisdom and counsel that will be needed from time to time. While all of them would love to be your trusted friend, the truth is, none of them walk in your shoes, or have the spiritual strength to handle the weight and pressure that God designed for you to manage. The women under your care need to be able to lean on you..... Not the other way around. YOU are the tree they shade beneath. I encourage you today to find the peer who also stands in the place of ministry just like you do. You will find a safe place of a real friend through out your life!
