I love today’s reading from Corinthians. I know that we all have been given spiritual gifts but sometimes it is so hard to recognize or acknowledge those spiritual gifts. I love the church Im working at. They’ve made me feel welcome etc but sometimes I get so frustrated. I had youth meetings this afternoon and only two came to the sr league and one to the jr league. I know it is going to take time for them to adjust etc but its still super frustrating. I think to myself, what could I do differently? What am I do wrong? Why dont they want to come and hang out etc? I realize I’ve only been here for about six months but I still wish more youth would come to events. I guess what Im trying to say is Im so glad I have my RevGalBlog Pals and other friends that I can confide in. What I could really use right now is someone to affirm my spiritual gifts? What I could use is someone to tell me that its ok to be frustrated? What I also could use are some nice affirming and comforting hugs?
