Why me God

After taking over a struggling Church seven years ago, having to deal with a difficult eldership, and starting with an unkempt set of books, demoralized congregation, and no real income coming to the Church, My wife and I decided that we were going to build together. Seven years later we are seeing God's hand move upon the Church. We have just migrated to a double service on a Sunday morning, membership is increasing, and for all intents and purposes, I should be rejoicing in what God is doing among us. The reality is that instead of rejoicing, I find myself at times not even wanting to do sermon prep (something I always enjoyed). It seems as though the rug has been pulled out from under my feet. The other night I raised my voice to the heavens and shouted "WHY ME LORD"

I know that my story is not unique , but just being able to read that I am not alone in this struggle encourages me.
