My son gets to see me in the moments where I’m exhausted and fed up with ministry. It’s hard to fake it with Jeremiah when he’s with me most of the day. I’m not going to hide from him when I’m discouraged by criticism. There’s a lot of difficulty and hardship when you are trying to help people lay down everything they know and to follow Jesus. Most days we are not going to see the world change and all we are left with is hope. But as he grows up, I hope he gets to see the fruit of all these days that ended in disappointment. People will let us down but God won’t. If we follow God, we are going to see his promises happen in his timing.
