hard days night


thinking about people who haven't made it to the end...one of my friends was on the cover of outreach magazine one month and the next month ran off to Calif...leaving his ministry, family and friends...how'd it happen? unresolved issues...

in the 70's one of the best speakers i ever heard taught on leadership at the bible college i attended...he mentioned 'you see me speak, think i'm great, but you don't know what is going on in my life'...weeks later he too was out of ministry away from family and friends...

my friend david addressed this issue in his blog http://pastordavidkerr.blogspot.com...and talked about completing the race...

Hebrews talks about casting aside 'anything' that hinders...i think it's the 'anythings' that grab us...whatever our anythings may be, sometimes it is disappointment, disappointment in our leaders, getting burned by the church, or discouragement, perhaps sin issues, or wounded ego, or general pressures etc.

I think this is why we need friends and people around us who will tell us the truth...to be honest ...i remember a movie the catch line was...'you couldn't handle the truth'... that makes for a hard days night... just musing inward... wanting to finish the race...

Our 25th is 6.6.06 maybe that's why i'm thinking...
