Statistics tell us that 70% of leaders struggle with loneliness. This comes from dealing with people and the demands of ministry in this current culture. Loneliness causes us to shut down and makes us feel like there is no purpose left for us. It can steal our focus, and affect our life and marriage.
If you are feeling lonely, there is hope for you. You do have purpose, and you are not alone in this. In his message, Pastor Kia Perez shares practical steps for getting out of loneliness.
Proverbs 27:17: “As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.”
We need each other, and we are not meant to do life and ministry alone. In ICFM you are part of a family who loves you and cares for you.
Matthew 11:28-30 NASB: “Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is comfortable, and My burden is light.”
You are needed. We have a world to share the love of Jesus with. God is for you! Who can be against you! We are not here to compete with one another, but we are here to complement one another.
