Friends in the trenches
It was a joy sharing with the Hutson's for several hours, even weeping at times at the goodness of God in our lives. We parted ways at the end of the evening remarking that there truly is no one that understands like another pastor. Last night we shared things about our ministry over the years that we have overcome and ways God has been so good. We bore a few burdens for one another as well, and have things to pray about like any pastor does. My point here is, there is nothing like sharing with other pastors and truly I believe that in addition to being a person of prayer, the Word and fasting - you can't do this long term without real relationships with those who are with you in the trenches.
