I’m A Little Nervous To…

I’m a little nervous to speak at my church tomorrow night!!!!   I’ll be honest.

I was asked a few months back and was super excited for the opportunity.  {knock knock, lol I’m hearing opportunity knock 🙂 } You know the saying when opportunity knocks, open the door?  Well I’m opening the door extremely slow! Sort of with an uncertainty now that it’s just a day away!!

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 6:12 We are not withholding our affection from you, but you are withholding yours from us.  After much prayer I feel this opportunity is from God and is something I should not pass up.  If I did I would be withholding this opportunity from someone who may need to hear my testimony.

But all these questions have not stopped running through my mind.  What do I have to say that is so important?  What do I have to say that will hold peoples attention for half an hour?  What is so important that people would take an hour and a half out of their evening to come listen to me?  Why did I even get asked to do this in the first place?  Isn’t there someone older more mature in their walk with God that is better fit for the job? I don’t even speak well in front of others.

As I’m writing in my journal all these fears and my mind is racing a million miles a minute. I felt a sudden peace over me as God reminded me of Moses.

You see in Exodus, Moses did the same thing.  God appeared to him as a burning bush {this did not happen to me btw :)} and gave Moses this huge job to do.

Moses said, ” Who am I to bring the Israelite’s out of Egypt?”

God said “I will be with you.”

Moses said, “But I am slow to speak and tongue.”

God said, ” Who gave man his mouth?  Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind?  Is it not I, the Lord? Now go; I will help you speak and teach you what to say.”

No, I’m not Moses. I’m not saving the Israelite’s but I do feel He has answered my fears through scripture.

What am I to do but take the opportunity and trust that through God I will be AWESOME!!! {but would greatly appreciate any prayers lol :)}

    You can do this! Your story is amazing and the power of God on your life will speak for itself. You may not be a trained speaker, but God says “I am!”. You may not be overflowing with confidence, but God says “I am!”. You may not be…, but God says “I am!”. And He says He will never leave you…so “You are, too!”
