I'm writing today to just say "hi" to anyone who might pass by my blog today.

For the last three days I have felt like one of the most misunderstood people on the planet. I don't know if other people ever have those days, or if it's something psychologically unique to me, but it doesn't feel very good. In fact it makes me feel grieved and sad.

I suppose that Jesus must have felt this way many times as He tried to share the things of the Spirit to those who could not understand. His experience was certainly much more frustrating and grieving than mine. He gave His all, He did THE BEST, He loved with an unwaivering love.

Do you ever try to do the right thing, only to be made to feel it is the wrong thing? Do you ever make decisions that you know no one else is going to understand, but know that you must make them? Do you ever feel as if others judge you - and you're not measuring up - even when they don't even have an accurate measuring stick?

Well, that's how I'm feeling today.
Seeking His grace for the moment.

to answer your questions...yes, and often but I have to use the Lord's measuring stick and not someone else's....not always easy in the midst of what is happening........hang in there and hold on tight to your Savior....

Hey, that is how 100% of all pastors feel every second of their lives!
Hang in there!

Thanks John,
Well, I'm a far cry from a Pastor, but I suppose perhaps that means I'm in good company ???
