Dear Friend Struggling As A Pastor’s Wife

*This post is apart of our “Dear Friend” series. These letters have all been written by women who want you to know that you are not alone in your struggle*

 

Dear Friend Struggling as a Pastor’s Wife,

My fellow pastor’s wife, my fellow-sojourner, my sister, you are not alone.

When life and ministry overwhelm you,
When the demands of your husband’s calling seems too much to handle,
When the darts and arrows of others hurt you,
When the pain of others is crushing you,
Know that you are not alone.

When the darkness seems unending,
When victories are few and far between,
When the future is uncertain,
When your own heart feels distant from your Savior,
Know that you are not alone.

Ours’ is an unusual path of such highs and lows,
A roller coaster of victories and failures,
Of joy and sorrow,
Of wins and losses.
But we are not alone.

“My soul finds rest in God alone,
My salvation comes from Him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
He is my fortress! I will never be shaken!”

Dear Friend Struggling as a Pastor’s Wife, you are not alone!
