    I have decided to resign my position as church clerk but retain my seat on the board of directors. I have not officially resigned at this point but plan to do so this week. I have total peace about the decision but I do have concern about how it will be received by other leadership. I can compare myself to Martha in the passage below:
    Luke 10:38-42 ...'Now it came to pass, as they went, that He entered into a certain village: and a certain women named Martha received Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus feet, and heard His word. But Martha was cumbered about with much serving, and came to Him and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things, but one thing is needful, and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.'
    I have found that I have become so wrapped up in serving the church that I have become distant from the ONE I am supposed to be serving. I can't continue to compromise my spiritual walk by allowing serving to get in the way especially when I have never had a calling to do church finance. I can not continue to be a people-pleaser at the cost of my on spiritual walk.

    Please pray that my resignation will be well received because if it is not well received then I feel like I will have to find another church and I don't want to have to do that.

    Philippians 4:5-7 King James Version (KJV)
    5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

    6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

    7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
