I love being a pastor's wife. To be part of a grander story, in just another chapter of the book in this role is fun. However, there are days I have to convince my mind what my heart feels. My mind sometimes focuses on all the waves around me and forgets to listen to the voice of God in my life. Therefore, I begin carrying burdens I shouldn't and this role becomes heavy and weary.
I think becoming burdened and weary is sometimes a good thing. It gets us back to our imperfect state of realizing we are nothing without Christ. Christ says in Matthew 11:28, come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest. Notice He says, come to me. Becoming weary, heavy laden, full of anxiety could this possibly be because we walked away from Christ? Absolutely. Walking away can be a subconscious thing. Our minds have a way about them, that they can get us somewhere before we know we have gotten there.
Luke 10: 27 "You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.' And, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'"
There is a whole lot of body control here. We must take over control of our heart, soul, and strength to love the Lord our God. We often view our bodies as one segment, entirely worshiping our Lord. But I don't know how many times I have heard someone say, "why am I struggling with this?" Just because your mind is struggling doesn't mean your heart is struggling. You have lost control over that part of your body. You need to get back to Jesus, and give Him all of your heart, all of your mind, all of your strength. It takes realizing we are nothing without Christ, to fulfill who we are created to be in Christ.
Do you want to have joy in every season of ministry? Fun in this role no matter what the circumstance? Sit at the feet of Jesus, and take back control over your mind, heart, and strength. Keep pressing over and over again the reset button to align all of you with Christ. Then walk in confidence and humility without burden as a pastor's wife.
