I May Become A Pastor

by Anonymous
( )

I am a humble woman. I have raised my kids as a single mom, and have suffered spirit breaking situations for many years of my life. I worked long hard jobs most of them were night shifts.

I have been put through the fire. I am barely surviving within my inner self, and the only thing that I have that is strong, is faith. I am very mature to many of life's stepping stones.

I have read all of the Pastor burnout stories, and I still have a seventy five percent of desire to become a Pastor. One thing that I am concerned about is being able to meet the demands of covering as a Pastor. I am trying to fight through the challenges that come to me.

Deep in my heart I feel that God is calling me to share my gift of ministry. The gift that I have recieved, is rare, and is needed by many. Some of the tragedies that I have experienced in my past life is blocking me, and is discolored with deep pain and suffering. I have been to a church in my community a few times, and have recieved the band-aid that I needed, but the sore seems to be everlasting, and reappearing tragedies through memories. My prayer life is intense. I have not been in church for over a year now.
