I can relate. Prior to now few years, I left my profession to pursue what I felt God was calling me to: ladies’s ministry.

Extra typically occasions than not, relatively than be impressed by their work, the enemy crept in telling me lies that their concepts are higher than mine. That they already had been doing the work wanted, so there was no extra room for me. That alternatives had been scarce. That their success is already confirmed to be far better than mine.
