I am so thankful for all of the encouraging voices in my life today. You may or may not know this, but a Pastor's life can be plagued with doubt. DOUBT CAN BE HUGE. I am no different. Doubt knocks on my door pretty regularly. Should I do this or should I do that, should I lead this way or lead the church that way. I know for some of us doubt can be literally paralyzing. We can't even move.... but then an encouraging voice can up speak and it is as if we have been set free,
