Over these next two months we are going to focus on the spiritual and emotional care of our pastors. Like all "people helpers", pastors and Christian leaders who shepherd others are prone to fatigue and burnout.

Over these next two months we are going to focus on the spiritual and emotional care of our pastors. Like all "people helpers", pastors and Christian leaders who shepherd others are prone to fatigue and burnout.

We are integrated beings and what effects us spiritually will eventually affect us physically and emotionally. The same is true if we become emotionally and physically run down. Time spent in scripture reading, mediation and prayer will strengthen us in life. Yet we may still find the stress of shepherding overwhelming at times. It is at these times that we need each other.

Galatians 6:2 “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

That said we also realize that pastors and many believers find it almost impossible to let others into our inner lives. We are reluctant to appear weakened and unable to cope because we see ourselves as those that need to be strong for others.

Unfortunately, this attitude can actually hurt our ability to be there for others.

The apostle Paul learned the all important lesson that when we are weak then we are strong. Why? We know that when we are weak and admit it we let the Lord work in our lives. Often, not always, the Lord uses other godly people’s experiences and training to bring help, healing and direction into our lives. The result of this is a sound ministry and an empathy with those around that are hurting.

Glenda DeVries is one such person whom God has equipped and gifted to help others. For these two months let's focus on prayer for hurting pastors and there are many. You will enjoy listening to Glenda as she shares her insights into the field of being a people helper.

 

Durant les deux prochains mois nous allons nous concentrer sur les soins spirituels et émotionnels de nos pasteurs. Comme tous ceux qui “aident les gens” les pasteurs et les dirigeants Chrétiens qui s’occupent des autres sont enclin à la fatigue et l’épuisement.

Nous sommes des êtres entiers et ce qui nous influence spirituellement finira par nous affecter physiquement et émotionnellement. Cela s’applique aussi si nous devenons physiquement et émotionnellement vidés. Le temps passé dans la lecture des Écritures, la méditation et la prière nous fortifierons dans la vie. Malgré tout, nous pouvons tout de même trouver que prendre soins des autres peut être un stress immense à l’occasion. Ce sont dans ces moments que nous avons besoin les uns des autres.

Galates 6:2 « Portez les fardeaux les uns des autres et vous accomplirez ainsi la loi de Christ. »

Ceci dit, nous réalisons aussi que les pasteurs et plusieurs croyants trouvent presqu’impossible de laisser les autres pénétrer nos vies. Nous sommes réticents de paraître affaiblis et incapable d’en venir à bout parce que nous nous voyons comme ceux et celles qui devons demeurer forts pour les autres.

Malheureusement, cette attitude peut en fait nuire à notre habilité à servir les autres. L’apôtre Paul a appris une leçon très importante que quand nous sommes faibles c’est alors que nous sommes forts. Pourquoi ? Nous savons que quand nous sommes faibles et que nous l’admettons nous laissons le Seigneur travailler dans nos vies. Souvent mais pas toujours le Seigneur utilise les expériences et formations d’autres croyants consacrés pour nous apporter de l’aide, de la guérison et de la direction dans nos vies. Le résultat de tout ceci est un ministère sain et une empathie avec ceux et celles qui souffrent autour de nous.

Glenda DeVries est une personne comme cela que Dieu a outillée et dotée de talents pour aider les autres. Pour les deux prochains mois, concentrons-nous sur la prière pour les pasteurs qui souffrent et il y en a plusieurs. Vous aimerez écouter Glenda alors qu’elle partage ses idées dans le domaine d’être quelqu’un qui aide les gens.
