Things that God is asking...

Last week was a very "odd" week. In the course of 2 days I was asked to step outside of my comfort zone by 2 different groups. And after the first one asked God threw a say yes in my head even though I told them I had to think about it. When after 5 mins I couldn't get Moses saying "why me" out of my head I messaged them back yes. Then I received an email asking me to volunteer some time everyday posting scriptures to Facebook and Twitter. This one actually had me stopping and thinking. Not because I didn't want to. Because I wanted to really check and see that I could commit to that. A couple of hours later when I couldn't keep telling myself no because let's face it, I am on Facebook all day anyway (don't tell my kids teacher ;), I emailed her back and asked her to send me the details. So here I am thinking okay I am good, I stepped out of my zone twice this week so I am done for a while getting uncomfortable. I am committed to two things all for God and encouraging others. Whew! Little did I know. For the past month I have seen these posts by a very dear friend who is our former preacher about a youth program called Lads to Leaders. I know of the program, I have for a while. But the past couple of days there has been a lot of tugging on my heart to present it to the church as a goal for our youth to participate in 2014. I mean a really hard tugging. So this Friday morning I gave in, I emailed some people with the idea. So now I am waiting to hear back. And I want to be obedient to God's pulling (well pushing) me out of my comfort zone. But I am terrified. What if I mess up? Am I committing myself? Just so many things. But if this is where he leads I will follow (mostly) willingly. That is the dream path right now. Where it leads I don't know.
