God Is My Confidence

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!

Woo Hoo!!!!!

I am sooooooooooo excited! God has definitely been moving in the lives of the women of this region! I love how He is teaching us(and encouraging us)to fully rely on Him in utilizing the gifts and talents He has already blessed us with.

To God be the glory...great things HE has done!

That is so cool! As you allow God to use you and step out of your comfort zone amazing things will happen. I am experiencing that myself with being on the Ministry Team at church. Keep us posted on your new experiences!

This was wonderful to hear. I am so glad that ladies get the opportunity to have such a prayerful, sensitive woman to sit with them. Morning Star must be so thankful that you are on their team. Keep up the good work!!
