In case you don’t already know, I am going on a mission trip to Guatemala next month with my church. And anyone who has known for very long, knows that going on this trip is so far out of my comfort zone that you’re probably shocked that I am going.
So here’s the scary part. I am just a baby in Christ. I am only beginning to understand the gospel and God’s amazing love for us…and I am going to be sharing the gospel with other people. I’m not sure if I am ready for this.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, I am so thrilled that God has given me this opportunity to be able to grow in Him and to share His Word. But I am so worried that I am going to mess this up. I know that God is and will be with me while I do this and He won’t put me in a situation that I’m not ready for. I know that God will give me the words to use to share what I do know and understand.
So why am I still afraid? I HAVE NO CLUE!!! Why am I still worrying about something that, I know, God is in control of? I think this is where I’m still learning how to trust that God will take care of me. I know in my head that there’s no reason to worry, but sometimes my heart loses the memo, lol.
I’m asking everyone, if you think of me over the next few weeks, please say a prayer for this mission trip. Please pray that I will listen to and follow God’s guidance and thank Him for giving me this opportunity.
