Small group!

December 6, 2008 at 7:06 am (Uncategorized)

For those of you who don’t know, I help lead a small group. It’s growing but very slowly. It’s going great and great things are going to happen, I believe it. I am so excited about going every week. I am still a little quiet when it’s time to talk. I need to get out of my shell, I know.  I believe I am supposed to be doing this. God is going to strengthen me and is growing this in me.

Last week Danielle talked. She gave us all a challenge for this week. She gave us all a Bible verse. We looked it up and read it out loud to everyone and told them what it meant to us and how we are going to live it out this week. My verse was 1Timothy 4:12, which says,  “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.”  How am I going to live this out? I said  that when it comes to the older  people who look down on me because I am young,  I am going to show them grace,  peace and love.  Man that can be very, very, very hard. My thought when I got this verse was I won’t have any problems with this  because I have gone through this already. But I guess God wanted me to go through it again.

I feel I have dealt with this before, but God is in control. I always have have to remind myself of that. God has created me who I am. I know who I am with out a doubt. I am here on earth to please God NOT man. I believe that all of the challenges that we go through draw us closer to God. It might be very painful to go through, but I want to be very close to my God. So I will do whatever it takes. God is good.
