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!

  2. This is true and i always wonder why the Pastors wife has to be so "lonely" i remember wen Sister Felicia Lamb if Sowers of The Word, was alive, she would call me over to sit with her...for me it was a pleasure because i grew up in front of them... All it takes is someone in the congreation to be friendly n sit with the Pastors Wife...it doenst mean its for a "selected individual" to take tht seat, just once in a while a friendly "sit" and all is well again..
