And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. (Rom 5:3-6)

Let not those who hope in you be put to shame through me, O Lord GOD of hosts; let not those who seek you be brought to dishonor through me, O God of Israel. (Psalm 69:6)

Book Update

I am finding that as I talk with other ministers and rally through a variety of statistics I am being further spurred on to write. So far I have a working title of Hanging by a Thread: The Current Crisis in Ministry. The only problem is the continual testing. It seems that there is ample opportunity to be questioned and be refined by what I am writing.

Just this morning I thought of three appendix sections to write. They are as follows...
  • 100 Reasons to Not Quit the Ministry
  • 100 Quotes of Ministry Perseverance
  • 100 Scriptures to Press On in Ministry
Please pray for the writing of this book. I have often wanted to quit, but the irony of it says press on.
