In the past week, I have been praying about the time that I would be on my own with a client (not shadowing an experienced volunteer/staff person) at Morning Star. I remember specifically praying that the Lord would prepare my heart and give me the confidence that I needed. I also prayed that He would send the "right" clients for me to listen to and talk with for my first experience...
I had no idea that I was praying for this night!
Due to circumstances that arose, another new volunteer and myself were the only two people that showed up tonight. We were a little unsure of what we should do, so I called one of the people that are in charge, and she encouraged me that I was ready to meet with the clients on my own tonight!
It was a great experience, and I was not nervous at all. The Lord was with me in all things. I am glad that my first experience by "myself" is over. I don't know if I still will need to do more shadowing, but I know that my confidence is in Him - for whatever He has for me!
