Unhappy Folks

No matter how hard we try or what we do.........someone is always unhappy.

Am I the only one that feels this way lots of times? 

 I have to keep reminding myself that when we are doing things pleasing to God, Satan is standing on the sidelines looking for someone to grab and use to discourage us.

Right now, our church is growing by leaps and bounds.  We just had to add an addition to the preschool department because we have so many younger couples with kids that we did not have room for them.

Now....we have almost outgrown the space again and are already making plans for another building program.

I am not complaining.........this is a great thing.  Right now, our church consists of 85% of people under the age of 40.  It is awesome.  And these are working couples that want help.

You might ask me...."So what is your problem then?"

With growth.......comes Satan.

Already, someone has gotten upset and questioned why we built the new building and why we were catering to the younger couples who seem to be taking over.  We were told that the younger couples are just there temporarily and will soon leave us.

Praise the Lord for the help............they are the church of tomorrow.  We are quickly pushing sixty and ready for someone younger to jump in.  And, yes.....if we push them aside, the younger, eager ones will move on to where they can better serve the Lord.

I have to keep reminding myself........that........Satan is the enemy and we need to PRAY for the weaker ones that are being used by him.

Please pray for us.........pray that we will keep our focus on the Lord and not allow Satan to discouraged us.
