As the committee and I plan another MIDDLE TENNESSEE WOMEN’S RETREAT, I find myself asking over and over again how I got to be the one He trusted with this venture...this great ministry for women.
I can name dozens of women who would be good at this…women who have great leaders’ hearts for ministering to other women. I’ve never felt I was very good at it, but once again, I find that He’s not looking for the most talented, the most gifted leader, the youngest, or the oldest. It is true that He is always looking for the one willing to work with Him. OBEDIENCE!
I pray that I’ll be faithful in letting God’s Holy Spirit work through me in doing what’s needed to lead a huge undertaking such as MTWR. Now I ask you, what is it that you are fearful of… that you feel He’s asking of you? You may think of others who could do it better (He may not agree with you). Can you believe in His call and His promise to be with you more than you dwell on all the reasons somebody else might do better? Just keep asking yourself… “Why would He talk to ME about it rather someone else?” I think you might find a source of peace and sense of empowerment if you listen to what He says in reply.
