Internship Journal VIII


I’m nearing the end of my first semester as an intern. I have no more classes to teach and nothing left to do but a box full of marking. I don’t have much energy left. I’ve grown to appreciate my former life. A life with a little more financial security. I’d like to return to that life because this one is wearing me out.



It’s hard to put difficult circumstances and God together. Everytime I encounter a rough spot I expect God to make it all better. It just doesn’t seem to happen that way. When I endure and persevere I’m usually better off. Then I can celebrate my growth. In this last month I’ve had to endure more than I’m used to. I hope that after my internship is over I can return to a more familiar, less stretching role in IT or ministry.

    Hey there mate – hang in there! Sounds like lifes been pretty intense for you lately – know what that feels like in ministry. This time of year often leaves you feeling battered!

    Maybe the new year will bring a little more respite from whatever pressures you are facing! Saying a prayer for you tonight…
