It is not always easy to maintain a healthy perspective in life and ministry. There may be times when fear, anxiety, unmet expectations, frustration and anger may creep into what we are trying to accomplish for God. We may ask ourselves - Why am I so concerned about what others think about me?
Another question may be - Why can't I just rely on God and His truth to guide me through the struggles of life and ministry?
We may get angry or frustrated with ourselves or others because they are not holding up their end of things.
Whatever may be skewing our perspective and making it unhealthy may be hindering our effectiveness in serving others. God really desires that we place our focus on Him. Afterall, we are accountable to Him first and responsible to Him for what we say and do. He is the only One who can give us the strength to make healthy choices and changes in our lives.
