The Laborers Are Few.

There are moments in ministry were I find myself overwhlemed and discouraged.

Most of those moments are when I am looking out over the needs of my neighborhood, and looking down at my volunteer roster.

I sigh and repeat, "the fields are white...but the laborers are few." And I sink down into my defeated pose.

Today the Lord rebuked me as I did that exact thing.  "Haven't you read the rest of that verse?"  Well, yeah, I had.  

"'Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.'"

So many times I've approached our need for leaders with a 'que-sera-that's-just-how-life-in-ministry-is' attitude.  And that's not what Jesus expected from me when He said these words.

As if He can't provide for the people He loves.  All I have to do is ask.

So I'm asking, Lord.  Send them.  I need a bunch!  I'll share the testimony of Your provision.

Just A Little Reminder.
