I’m speaking at my church at our Saturday night church service giving a message for the Mothers. I’ve changed my topic four times since Monday and feel like I’ll end up talking from my heart. I would love for God to just make it so that I don’t come off sounding inexperienced. No matter what I say I’ll probably feel like I could have done better, since I’m my worst critique, but I know God has prepared me for this.
It’s hard to comprehend how God could have prepared me for something yet I still feel a tinge of inadequacy. The hard part is knowing how inadequate I am and still mustering up the courage to share my story with people.
When speaking to a crowd…
I say “um” way to much.
I make this snapping sound with my mouth in between sentences.
I wrinkle my forehead like I’m disturbed and I blink a lot.
My biggest fear is confusing people or either offending them.
The truth of the matter is that either of those outcomes are a possibility, but in the grand scheme of things neither matters. The only thing that matters is that God has brought me to this point for a purpose. He and his pleasure in my obedience is all that matters.
One of my favorite verses Joshua 1:9. It’s always been one that has given me courage to face the things God asks me to do that frighten me.
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
I will try to come back and let you know how it turned out sometime next week. Until then, I created a video for you on building your family up with words. You know how passionate I am about this subject, so I hope you’ll enjoy.
