Chosen for the altar series- 4

"I like the assistant pastor"

This happens often, the assistant falls in love with the assistant pastor and wants to marry him in any which way.

But there is a small problem, she doesn't have a calling to serve on the altar, but she isn't thinking about that, right now all she wants is to be with the person she loves, and she isn't worried about anything else.

Marrying a pastor is not the same as getting married to a lawyer or a teacher. A man of God needs a woman of God by his side, who also has the calling of God to serve on the altar, and a woman who is willing to surrender her own life.

If not, she won't be happy and she won't be able to make her husband happy either, because even if she loves him, because to her she'll be in a strange atmosphere and she'll end up frustrated in the work of God.

Because the pastor thinks about the work of God, how to help the people, what else can be done for them. If his wife doesn't have the same vision, she will think In her own desires, in going out, in spending time with friends, became in reality she doesn't feel pleasure in doing the things of God and the work of God for her becomes a burden, something boring.

So be honest. If you don't want to serve God on the altar, you cannot marry a pastor, because the work of God cannot be done by force or as an obligation , she is of maximum responsibility.

Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.” Psalm 51:6

This is totally right!!! Being a pastor's wife is more than a desicion. It's to know already that choosing the altar not only changes your life if not your future husband also.

I know such special, wonderful, marvelous pastors' wives that they give their own lives just so that I can be happy. They become my friends and I am so thankful that God introduced me to these such wonderful pastors' wives as I don't have any friends, not even at school, nor work, nor family.... It is hard to live like this, but these women have made my life easier.

I have also known some other pastors' wives who don't look or seem that happy and sometimes I only wonder if that would be me if I decide to serve on God's Altar. I don't want to judge them or anything, but they have helped me to decide in not being wishy-washy in serving God's Altar: I don't think I am made for this. At least, not now.

I think most females whether assistants or not, they all see something or in this case someone and immediately wantit not because it was the will of God in some case but rather because the heart wants what the eyes saw, nothing else. They don't think about what they can add but rather what they can recieve.

This is true Mrs Tania, when one decides that she wants to marry a pastor she must be aware of the life she will live thereafter, so we should choose someone who matches us, who has the same goals as us. A man of God on the altar needs a woman of God who has the same goal.

Thank you very much

. I think this is true to marry a pastor, is to completely serve God, to give 100% to God and If there is no desire than is better not to marry a pastor, not to take that leap.

Dear Mrs Tania
To marry a pastor you must be sure that is what you want you must not marry because you want to be a pastor wife,don't use emotions and feelings as Mrs Tania says have the same vision with the pastor and be truthful to yourself that is what you really want

With love

Dear Mrs Tania,
Indeed to marry a Pastor is not as marring a lawyer or a teacher, not even by far.
To be married to a Pastor is a blessing but it is a sacrifice because we must be called by God and we must surrender on the altar 100%.

Dear Mrs Tania,
This is the pure truth. Marrying a Pastor just because you want to be a wife it can also be dangerous as you can also end up doing negative things that you were not supposed to be doing. But being fairly decided on what you really want you will enjoy the work of God.

Thank you

Ola Mrs. Tania
When someone whats to marry a pastor must be in love first with God and the work of God or else the marriage will not be fruitful and she won't be able to help her husband.

A man of God needs a woman of God by his side,who also has the calling of God to serve on the altar,a woman who wants to marry a pastor must be willing to surrender her own life.If a woman marries a pastor but not being interested in the work of God she wo n't be happy in the marriage and the work of God it will be a burden to her,a woman must be honest to herself because the work of God cannot be done by force
