The Lord is impressing upon my heart to share this series of articles written by a friend a few weeks back. This series does not deal with physical trials, but rather with discouragement in the ministry. It reflects upon the love of God in a believer's life. What does it mean to really have God's love? Do we really have God's love for others? all others?
Are you getting discouraged in ministering for God? Does it seem like a burden instead of a privilege? Perhaps what you need is a revival of the love of God in your heart. My friend, Molly, has been open and tenderhearted to the Lord and allowing Him to teach her His true love; and she has taken the time to share with others what the Lord has been teaching her. Below is a link to part 1 in her series of articles on this subject. (It was originally going to be a 2 part series, but it actually ended up being a 3 part series.) I pray God it will be a blessing to you and an encouragement to you to keep on keeping on, in the love of Christ.
