Church thoughts

Ya know, you KNOW a good church, when everytime you go, it seems like the sermon is directed straight at you. We're now going to a new church since they have a special needs class for D, and MAN, tonite's sermon was God whispering in my ear, saying, "listen closely"...OK GOD, I GET IT! It was all about making excuses for not doing what God is calling us to do. And I've been feeling for awhile that God is urging me towards something and I can't figure out exactly how to DO IT. I know He's got this...I know it. But I need to suck it up and take the leap, and I'm finding that very difficult. The pastor related it to Moses and the burning bush. When Moses kept saying he couldn't do it and finally asked God to find someone else to do it. But in the end, Moses was the one who led the people out of Egypt, he fulfilled his destiny, and what would have happened if he'd kept making excuses and never done it? I need to get rollin on this, but I'll be the first to admit that I'm scared to step out there on my own and risk failure. Anyone else ever feel like that?

Love your blog...and as Jeff said, a lot of time those around us see our gifts. B, I see you as having the gift of making people feel at ease and comfortable...I think they call that hospitality, although I tend to associate hospitality with Martha Stewart, and I don't mean that you do things like Martha Stewart...more like my best friends mom...where I could always just sit down and talk to her about anything without wondering if she was judging me. You have an amazing way to make people at ease. I also think you have the gift of inviting and organizing get togethers. You always make everyone feel like they are welcome to join you whereever you are. I so enjoy going to church with ya.
