Last night I shared with my roommates that I was not sure where I fit into the ministry. So, I asked two people if I could shadow them this morning and they both told me no. I then tried going out on a team, but something came up on three different occasions where I couldn’t go. After I surrendered to the fact that I was going to stay at the church, the Lord put the song “Take Courage” in my heart. I was able to rest, regroup and spend time alone with my Savior! I wanted to serve Him and He wanted me to fellowship with Him! During my quiet time, I got the revelation that He was still equipping me, so there is no rush in knowing where I best can serve the ministry. What a huge burden was lifted after I realized this!
As noon approached, I tried to get a ride to the lunch church. I had trouble finding a ride then too, which really baffled me. However, at the very last minute, someone approached me and explained they needed one more person in the car so it wouldn’t be just one male and one female riding together. As soon as I began talking to the driver, I knew why the Lord interrupted all of my other plans, He wanted me to encourage him to look into the possibility of becoming a team member with TTR! As Rich was sharing about his last two encounters, a fire truck went by and there was a wind gust. What a neat confirmation that he was right where the Lord wanted him and he was in the center of God’s will!
Through this encounter, the Lord taught me to just rest and trust in Him. Even though things might not be going the way I intended them to, He is working it out to be used for HIS glory! To top that off, “Take Courage” playing as I walked into the sanctuary! What a gift and treasure that was, reminding me I was right where the Lord wanted me and I was in the center of God’s will!
