A Day in the Life of a Pastor – Tension


“For we live by believing and not by seeing.” 2 Corinthians 5:7

When I read the scripture above, I can almost picture the snow capped mountains against a blue sky. The chiseled rock shimmering amongst the blackened crevices and sporadic outgrowths of green fauna. It is the perfect motivational poster on a screen saver or office wall.

Here is what it is in real life…TENSION! We live in a world we can see while serving a God and his principles that we cannot see. Tension. His ways are not our ways. Tension. Our human nature vs. his Godly nature. Tension. Love your enemies and pray the best for them. Tension. When slapped, turn the other cheek. Tension. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.(Heb. 11:1 KJ) Tension.

This is a great journey and mystery. Find the balance and live all that God has for you today!
