It is often a joy to serve before God when all is well: bills all paid, spouse (if you have one) is happy, children (if you have them) respectful and doing well. It is indeed quite easy to serve God in faith when little faith is required. And in those moments when life is not as perfect or, worse yet a setback has occurred, it is almost customary for the servant of God to take a moment to regroup, to step away and pray. leaving the service of the Lord to others while making whatever adjustments are necessary before continuing with the demands of the call. Unfortunately, we often forget all that is meant in Paul's words to the Thessalonians, "that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope." (1 Thessalonians 4:13) Everything that hurts the man of the world does similar damage to the man of God; the latter simply does not always have the luxury of putting all aside to work through hurts.
