My father in law said my problem is, I study so much and have no outlet to give it out to others, and the others don't want to hear what I have to say. Bob just might have a point.
Nevertheless......I refuse to go to bed and sleep. I refuse to stay the same. I refuse to quit learning. I refuse to stay down for the count of ten. I refuse to believe the Lord has called back his calling upon my life at sixty.
Now don't think I think I am a Jeremiah, the prophet, "Lord how long do I have to preach and no one is listening." Most people have no idea what in the world I am talking about here, and really that is good. You don't want to let people know you're discouraged, and hurt, and disappointed. We are proud. We want people to have the impression: everything is just fine.
And for this very reason is why you hear preachers drop off the face of the ministry. his is the reason why men will just quit the ministry, drop out of church, and go into the public life, where there is a much better chance to succeed.
