Hopefully a good encouragement for you from my reading today

I was reading through 1 Corinthians 4 today and wanted to encourage you to thank your spiritual fathers and those who have given their time to help you follow Jesus. In my own life I haven’t had many of them and was too immature to realize what they were really doing for me really. Now that I am helping with the youth group in my church I realize how much of a thankless task it can be and thought it a good reminder to be thankful for those around us God had given to build us up in him.

A little background first, I am currently a part of a church that I don't agree with on many issues and don't connect well with more than a handful of people. However, it is the church I came to know the lord in, and feel strongly about being committed to it despite the differences.

I serve in multiple areas in the church and I'm involved in a group every week but it seems like I just leave the gathering less encouraged then when I came in. I don't know if it's just because of the poor church culture or where I'm at in my own life.

I am in college right now and feel tremendous pressure to pick a job where I'll be able to make enough to stay in the area I live in right now. I could pick a normal college program and probably be middle of the pack but I hesitate to spend all that time and money investing in something I may not even enjoy. I feel the leaning to do a job where I can build and create something but know that doing this will most likely mean I will need to move away.

I'm also feeling the pressure of being alone emotionally and having to care for the hearts of the kids and ministry I lead at the church. I lead the Jr High ministry and am trying to "right the ship" if you will at least in the area i'm over.

I know all the places to turn and am trying but the heart just isn't getting in line, and writing these things out usually helps me so your prayers would be appreciated, thanks.

TLDR; feeling lonely and isolated I know all the right places to turn just seem stuck in a rut despite it.
