Stay in the Word, and call on the Lord. Our Christian journey isn't one of exclusive enjoyment and feasting. It was never that way. We are being conformed to His image - and His life was not an easy life... but yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil - for Thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me...

I believe the ministry taught that the rod was for beating the sheep who would wander (do I recall that correctly?)... But this wasn't what the shepherd used the rod for. The Shepherd loved the sheep, he put his life on the line for them... The rod was for the wolves; and the crook of the staff for the leading of the sheep.

He will continue to lead you, will you trust Him enough to follow? He lead me into the ministry to show me something - something worth loving and longing and working for. He lead me out of the LSM church when I'd seen enough to know the vision could not become a reality in the current environment. Lord, build up Your Church.

Amen
