"In the space between what you need and what you have in ministry, faith finds room to grow..." I love this quote from "The 80/20 Gap" by Ann Murphy in Children's Ministry Magazine. If you find yourself in that gap, get encouragement from this article today! Check it out here: http://childrensministry.com/article.asp?ID=1863
The Bible is very clear that without faith, it's impossible to please God. I hope you know today as you've experienced the gap in your ministry--whether that's unstaffed classrooms, missing resources, or any other thing you desperately need--that you know your faith in trusting God for those missing things is VERY pleasing to him.
I'm thankful to God today that he doesn't meet our every need all the time. It's in the longing and the waiting that we demonstrate our faith in a completely faithful God.
Be encouraged today!
