Say – Say What?

God is looking for each one of us to say “Yes”!  I looked back over the last two years at the growth that has occurred in me and realize what a difference saying yes has made.  Every day if we will only listen, God speaks to us.  Have you heard Him, have you heard His whisper – not audibly but a tug at your heart, have you heard Him call you?  I have many times and even more so the last few years as I have grown closer to Him.

I heard him nudging me to retire back in 2011.  Really, I would normally have given months and months of notice, but He nudged me one November day and I retired December 31.  You see He know we were going to lose my Mom about 14 months after that.  It gave me many more moments with her than I would have had if I had continued working running by there in the late afternoons tired, running up there on Sunday after church tired.  God knew, He nudged, and I said YES!

A few months after I retired He lead me to on-line Bible studies and then He said it was time to be volunteer to be a group leader and I was like what, what!  Later as I was approached to be a team leader it was like No Lord, I’m not capable.  He said I will equip you.  I love it.  I love meeting women all over the world.  Many I have met personally and recently got to spend time with 200 of them at a retreat.

Well a few months after that He said it was time to teach.  I said say what!  I am not a teacher. Guess what?  I AM because of who He is!

Romans 9:25-26 – I’ll call nobodies and make them somebodies: I’ll call the unloved and make them beloved.”

I’d love for you to share you say what moments!

    My life changed radically in 2011 as well. I’ve always worked with children, but my husband asked if I would be willing to take over the women’s ministry. I said yes, if someone will do the children. Later that year, my chronic pain began. I am hardly able to keep up with kids, but women, I can do! I have been leading Bible Studies with the women in one way or another ever since!

      GiGi I used to be the children’s director at our church for many years when my kids were small. I loved it, but I always had a nudge. God is so good to put us places early knowing what we are going to go through. For me too I started subbing, and I ended up the first day with special needs children. I wanted to run, but God changed my heart that day to show me I would have a grandson born the next year with special needs and to see he really was not so bad at all. Love how He works.
