“The joy of the LORD is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10)
Are you a ministry wife?
How are you doing?
Not your church or husband or family, but you. Your own soul and spirit. Your own relationship with the Lord. Are you experiencing great intimacy and growth? Do you just feel a need to celebrate God's faithfulness? Or are you feeling stagnation and nothingness? Are you simply physically, emotionally or spiritually exhausted? Maybe all three? Do you need to pour your aching heart out to a kind face? Or do you crave time alone to talk to your Lord? Are you hungry for His touch? Do you feel alone out there? When’s the last time you just had fun? Could your soul use a little tender loving care? Do you get worn out in your many hats?
Can you relate to any of these?:
“the joy of the LORD is your strength." Nehemiah 8:10
Ministry wives have unique pressures, stressors and often no safe and confidential sounding board. Psalm One Ministries provides encouragement, support and soul care through one-day gatherings and other meaningful connections.
We focus on three areas:
Refreshing the soul--finding ways to keep your spirit and personality encouraged and uplifted. Making sure that you are not dying the vine. Sometimes we nearly lose ourselves completely as we sacrifice for the ministry. This is a safe place to unload or just be with others who might understand what your life is like.
Reconnecting with God--truly enjoying Him and drawing on the Lord as your friend, source and healer—not as the One who takes up all your husband’s time. Sometimes we get God and church mixed up. And ministry can crowd out the true joy and power of our intimacy with Jesus.
Resourcing--connecting with contacts, articles other support in your needs and interests. I am in the Caregivers’ Forum, which ministers to those in ministry, and there may be resources that could be a lifesaver to you or someone you know.
If you are a pastor's wife..
No matter where life finds you, Psalm One Ministries would like to invite you to join us for a Day of Refreshing designed just for ministry wives. We gather a few times a year for a mini retreat aimed to feed your soul in a safe, beautiful place. We have time to talk about some of the issues you may be facing. You can share as little or as much as you want, and we will listen, laugh, cry, rejoice or commiserate with you. And you don’t have to do anything in this ministry but receive it!
