This sums up things going on around me in my life right now. There are many good things, many bad things, and a few ugly.
It is such a roller coaster ride to be going through a time where there are a lot of good things going on, a lot of bad things going on, and some ugly.
You want to rejoice, but then you are frustrated. You want to have a pity party, but you have so much to be thankful for.
You feel like you are a failure, but you see so much success.
I think this is the life of a leader.
Right now, there are quite a few frustrating things financially, relationally, professionally, personally that make me want to stop believing in what God can do through me.
BUT.......God has just provided in an incredible way for one of our ministry leaders to be more involved in mosaic, God has brought a friend to repentance about something they have struggled with for years, God is bringing some relational cohesiveness that he never has before, God has blessed me with a great family and friends.
It is very tough; But a leader must embrace the good, the bad, and the ugly.
