The Pastor's Wife: The Invisible Wife

What? It cannot be that the Pastor's wife feels that way, would some people say. She is always in church, sitting alone in the front row seat, which is most of the time.  As usual, the Pastor gets all the attention.

Feeling invisible is part of the price of being in the  ministry. It does not define who you are, but it certainly describes whose you are.  But how you respond to it matters much. You cannot allow what you are exposed to, to make you feel less that what God says about you.
Psalm 139:17-18 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can't even count them; they out number the grains of sand! And when I wake up you are still with me! NLT
These two verses describe two things about God :
How almighty God is and that God just doesn't love us, He's obsessed with us.
Be encouraged that you are not invisible, you are not alone in the front row seat. The Holy Spirit surrounds you and comforts you and that means that God sees you and that is more than enough!

The Pastor's Wife: Assumptions!

The purpose of The Pastor's Wife blog is to encourage and be of service in word to every Pastor's wife.  It is to give understanding that being married to a Pastor is not a job as some may view it to be,  but it is most certainly a calling 📢 from God!🤔

It is hopefully a guide to every woman preparing or intending to marry 💍 a Pastor.

My name is Lynne Wareley and I am a Pastor's wife for 22 years. My husband's name is Bradley Wareley. We are the Pastoral couple at The Full Gospel Church, Cape Town, South Africa.
We have known each other for 27 years, and we saw each other everyday (hint..hint..and that wasn't easy).

As you  👀 through a 🔎, the closer you get, the more clear and bigger the picture, but not to close though, otherwise the picture will be distorted.

It is often said or assumed that a Pastor's wife is aloof. But, that is far from the truth.  The perception of who you think she is, is from an uninformed basis. Just ask the Pastor's wife, she won't fake it! If you still think she fakes, go figure it out and I hope you make it, so that you can relate.
