A Journal Entry of a Young Minister

Certainly, ministry has it’s ups and downs, times of celebrations and times of challenges. There are those days when people criticize you, and everything you do. But then, there are moments that bring everything else into perspective and makes the tough challenges of ministry worthwhile.

 Tonight, I experienced one of those unforgettable moments.

Tonight, I had the opportunity to sing a song to a baby that was given a couple of hours to live.  Together with a couple of friends, we sang this song to this baby boy, who was only 1 week old:

Jesus loves me! this I know,
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong;
they are weak but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

 After evenings like this, the hardships and struggles in ministry are worthwhile.
