So, it’s no secret that children are difficult to work with. I’ve been doing it since I was twelve, and I still make mistakes. (Not really though. I’m kinda awesome.)
But it’s really sad when situations arise in a ministry that you’ve poured you’re all into and given your best shot, and it just doesn’t work out.
This is why it’s so important to work with people that you can trust and know that they are going to back you up. It’s so vital for a ministry, especially one involving children, to have that team, those people you can depend on.
It’s difficult too, to quit, even when you know that quitting is the right thing to do. But it’s not like you’re giving up. You’ve done all that you can possibly do. It’s time to move on.
My husband and I recently had to do just that, with the Children’s ministry we were working in. I love working with kids, but because of all the things that happened, it was the best decision that we could have made. And hopefully, we’ll have the opportunity to do it again, in a healthier environment where we can work with people we can rely on and work with children who are less… um…. what’s a nice way of putting this…
Moving away from that serious mumbo jumbo, here’s a link that takes a funnier spin on working with difficult children. You can watch it by clicking here! Convienent, right?
And for those of you who work with children, whether it’s in church or through babysitting or being a mom, God bless you. Really. It takes a lot of patience and wisdom to do what you do!
And for those of you who don’t… man you’re lucky!!!
