‘And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.‘ – Romans 8:28
There has been a lot of confusion as to why I’m taking Berean classes to get my license. A couple of people seem to be thinking that I’m doing this for The Husband. However, I am doing this for myself.
Just like The Husband, I feel and have always felt I have a calling into ministry and a couple of weeks ago while at a women’s conference I know that God is telling me that now is the time. That I have gone long enough without following His calling. My first priority when it comes to ministry is to be by my husband’s side, to support him in all that he does and help in ways that I can. I know that this is my biggest calling as his wife.
My husband is a Worship Pastor, and although I want to help him in every way possible, the honest truth is music is not my calling. As much as I wish He did, God did not bless me with musical talents. And that’s ok because I feel there are other areas in his ministry that I can serve. I do feel God has called me to women’s ministry and to work in online communications for the church.
More specifically I feel God has called me to lead Women. This scares me. But who ever said that the calling that God gives you is one that you will want? I do not feel equipped to be a teacher, heck I cry every time I’m talking and get emotional. However, I know with God by my side He will equip my heart and my mind for this calling. I no longer feel scared about where God wants me to go. I feel blessed and encouraged to take this role He has placed on my future.
So yes, I am taking classes to get my pastoral license, and I’m excited to see where God places me in the future. I’m eager to help The Husband in his ministry as much as I possibly can. I’m excited to learn and eventually teach God’s word. I’m thrilled to take on the role that God has placed in my heart. I’m excited for all that God is doing in both my husband’s life and my own.
