Last week I stood in front of a group of ladies for the first time leading a bible study. While I prepped and than lead the study I never made the connection that I basically was doing what session two of Pulling The Thread is about.
It wasn’t until I sat down to write this post that I realized how much stretching in God it has taken to get me up to this point in my life.
I had a lot of fears about leading. What if I didn’t do a good job? What if no body understands what I am saying? And these were just some of them!
Ends up leading a bible study is not as scary as my mind made it out to be. Yes, like anything else there are things I can improve on but I am so glad that I got outside my comfort zone and did this!
This weeks Verse to SOAK and Memorize is one of my favourites.
This verse really changed how I look at myself. It made me stop and wonder am I really using my gifts to their full potential? I really started reminding myself that God’s works are wonderful and so am I.
When ever fear, anxiety, or doubt enter my mind I push them aside and say this verse instead.
It’s actually one of the reasons why I have gotten over some of the fears that have held me back from using my gifts to my full potential.
