As a Youth Pastor getting the awesome opportunity to teach/preach to teenagers every week…there are times when I have finished a sermon walked off stage and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I nailed it. By that I mean I communicated my points well the audience showed some measure of understanding and it flowed well. Then there are times when you know even in the midst of speaking that this trrain is off the tracks. There is no flow all the stares are blank and the room is dead..The young people are looking at you like a anorexic looking at a buffet. It is one of those times that you hope no one captured it in a recording. And when you get home your wife lets you know how bad it really was…Been there? Ha ha..There are several reasons this could happen.
1.You haven’t prayed enough
2. You were not properly prepared
3. You were not preaching the message God wanted
4. God was doing something to keep your feet on the ground
5. You are just over critical of yourself To be honest I take it really hard and usually can fall into number
But I also have to assess myself. I want to be better and I need to confront any mistakes I make to grow. The key is where do you go from there if you don’t make some sort of change then you will fall into a cycle that you don’t want to be in.
What about you? Ever felt this way? What do you do?
I’ve learned that even in the times that I feel the sermon/lesson bombed…if you are truly teaching what God has told you teach He has promised that His word will not return void…Some of the worst one’s I thought turned out to be the biggest blessing to someone! GO GOD> It’s letting the Word of God speak:
