How Do I As A Pastor Stay Positive In The Times Of Discouragement?

In this episode Dr. Betters answers the question, "I have been a pastor of a relatively small church for the past 20 years. I know my congregation pretty well. I hear the good, the bad and the ugly. I pour my heart and soul into preaching and counseling but after 20 years I am struggling with feeling defeated, discouraged and thinking it might be time to just quit. The criticism I hear is affecting my marriage, my family and my friendships. Sometimes we just feel so alone even though we are surrounded by people every week. I truly believe God called me to this and I trust Him completely but don’t know what to do or where to find encouragement."
