Dear Pastor’s Wife…Thank You.

Dear Pastor’s Wife,

For consistently supporting your husband spiritually, emotionally, and physically...thank you. Your love is his greatest earthly treasure.

For filling in the ‘gaps’ at church, for noticing the little things…thank you.  It makes a difference.

For smiling when your own heart is breaking…thank you.  That takes grace.

For all of your sacrifices, both visible and invisible…thank you. God sees them all.

For being authentic, for not trying to be superwoman…thank you. People can always relate to real.

For modeling Godly living and for mentoring those who are young in the Lord…thank you. The next generation is changed because of this.

For bearing up under criticism and attack; for responding with humility, grace, and forgiveness time after time…thank you. You are like Christ in your suffering.

For navigating an often hectic and unpredictable schedule with graceful flexibility…thank you. You make it look easy.

For burying your own grief; for setting your own burdens aside, in order to reach out and minister to others in their times of sorrow...thank you. People will never forget that you were there for them.

For nurturing your relationship with Christ above any other relationship…thank you. It shouldn’t be any other way.

For leading through an example of servanthood, for serving with confidence and joy…thank you. You compel others to serve God with you.

For embracing the privilege and high calling of ministry, for saying “yes” to life with a pastor…thank you. You make Christ’s bride look beautiful.


A Kindred Spirit

  1. I wish I would feel just a tiny bit of appreciation. I feel invisible and unwanted. The longer it goes on the more withdrawn I become.

    1. Man sees the outside but God sees your heart. 1 Sam 16:7 God’s Word is what keeps me focused on Him and not others. Praying for you dear sister!

    2. Remember Tommie, God could see Hagar out in the desert and He sees you. fear not god is the First and the last. He will bless you immensely. Keep walking with Him.

  2. Thanks Leah I needed those words of thanks..I thank you for allowing God to use you to minister and encourage the hearts of all the pastor’s wives that read your passages its truly a blessing…

  3. Thank you so much Leah for these words. I am going to share this with my fellow pastors wives in my city. Thank you again!

  4. I must say thank you again for God’s leading in this devotion. It’s a comfort to know there are ladies who can relate to your joys and trials in the ministry. I often remind myself that I’m laying up my treasures in heaven 🙂

    1. Terri, yes! Our treasure surely is in heaven more than on earth. I’m glad it’s that way, too. And I’m thankful that He has given us each other, as you said. We can hold up the arms of one another as we look to Him for strength. God bless you today!

  5. Thank you Leah for God gives you the right words at the right time to share with us. As you know this journey is not easy but I would not trade it for nothing! We must continue to left each other up. God bless you Leah as you continue to bless us?

  6. Dear Leah,
    Thank you so much for your Thank you note.
    I know you can understand, being a pastor’s wife. please pray for me and my family.
    Most of the time only my children stand by me against all the hostility from the congregation who reject God’s word and the youths who rebel against the standards of the church.
