Have you ever been asked to do something that makes your stomach tie up in knots of anticipation? Something that you've never done, that you're not exactly sure how to do, but something that you know God can equip you to do?
In just under two weeks, I'll be speaking on a panel at the Valley United Women's Conference as well as helping lead worship for the event. Both of these opportunities were a little intimidating when they were first presented, but not very much as I'm pretty comfortable speaking in front of groups and I already help lead worship at church on Sundays.
It wasn't until I was asked to also lead in vocal worship (inviting the conference attendees to join in worship, leading in prayer and scripture reading between songs, etc) that I started to get really nervous. But despite my nerves, I found myself saying yes.
The longer I live here in Mexico, the more God shows me that we truly are capable of anything God calls us to. The popular scripture, "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength" could not be more relevant. Philippians 4:13
Is God calling you to do something a little outside of your comfort zone? Don't write it off! Do you believe the Holy Spirit can work in and through you? He can. And He will! And remember, if the glory belongs to God, it takes the pressure off of yourself.
And if you live in or near the Rio Grande Valley, I'd love to see you at the conference alongside me! Sign up Here!
