When Monday comes, I am still the pastor's wife. When Monday comes, I am still cheering the pastor on. I think there is a huge misconception in people's thoughts, and often times in our own about who we are through out the week. Although, Sunday is the big day to lift Jesus high as a corporate body unified together in a building. When Monday comes, it is another church day.
Pastoring a church is a beautiful never ending commitment. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, no matter what the day throughout the week it involves full time ministry. Our husbands are discipling, meeting staff, sermon prepping, and so on. And we pastors' wives are shepherding our children, meeting women, and serving however.
We preach to our congregations "be the church wherever you go." While you're at work, at the grocery store, a party, wherever. Yet, when we go down the grocery aisle and we see a woman distraught we forget we are pastors' wives and view it as just another Thursday. Pastors' wives, God has equipped us to love on, help lift burdens, and encourage others no matter if they are a part of the church body or not. Remember who you are.
You are the daughter of the King. Beautiful, and adored by the Father. In this season, you have been given the opportunity to lead and shepherd a church. Sundays are just another day. A big day, because you come together gathered in a building. But when Monday comes, you are still the pastor's wife and you still have a responsibility in Christ to love, guide, pray, and care for the weary.
