Thankful Thursdays - Pastor Appreciation

I AM THANKFUL FOR:

61. Our pastors at Victory Baptist. October is Pastor Appreciation Month, and we so appreciate our hard-working pastors. We have a senior pastor, and two retired pastors who teach. They are all excellent preachers who diligently feed us the Word of God each week.  We give thanks to God for them and their ministry to us. 

Have you ever walked in our Pastor's shoes,
And gone where his feet have trod?
Have you ever thought of what he means to us,
And on your knees, given thanks to God?
Have you ever told him thank you,
For being there, when times are tough,
For comforting words and fervent prayers
When trials come and the storms of life are rough?
He answers our calls in the middle of the night
And tells us not to worry, for he will be there.
He gives up his comfort of quiet rest
And comes with prayers of comfort to share.
Have you ever thought to say thank you Pastor,
For preaching God's word to help us understand,
For all the times he has asked for things
That will lend us a helping hand?
When you pray, put him at the top of the list
And ask the Lord to surround him with loving care,
To give him strength and walk with him,
To help him with the burdens that he must bear.
Have you ever walked in our Pastor's shoes,
And gone where his feet have trod?
Have you ever thought of what he means to us,
And on your knees, given thanks to God?

62. Our wonderful pastors' wives. They all are such a support to their husbands, serve sacrificially in the church and do a great job raising their families.  What a blessing they are! 

When we thank God for our pastor
We must give Him thanks for two,
For when your husband came to us
God also sent us you.
A pastor's wife must be many things,
You have many hats to wear;
And we say thanks for all you do
And lift you up in prayer.
You adjust your life to meet the needs
Of your husband's congregation,
And it seems that you can always cope
With most any situation.
Your presence blesses all of us
Who know you from day to day
As our pastor's wife, you are serving God
In a fine and worthy way.
