At first I said yes.
Then he sent me the transcript.
When I asked what he wanted, exactly, he told me and included the word syntax. A quick visit to Dictionary.com told me what syntax was. Pastor Mark also mentioned he and I would be meeting with the senior pastor on this project.
Fear! My old enemy raised up.
I was newly returned to this church after several years at a smaller church due to my child's Sensatory Integration issues. Now our child had outgrown most of those issues, so we're back at "our" church.
So many things had changed ... including the pastor. I didn't know him ... at all. I couldn't possibly go into meetings with him, especially when I didn't even know the definition of syntax!
So I backed out of the project.
A few weeks ago, in worship service, I had a revelation.
You get them, right? The light goes on, you suddenly see Truth.
Of course I couldn't help with this project, didn't know syntax's definition nor the pastor.
But, hello! I do know the Lord God who created these things and people. What did I have to fear? If God called me to do this, He planned to enable me in the task. Hadn't I seen Him do that many times before?
So I said yes. A year after the invitation to help with the project.
Not sure they can use my help on the same project, but they know now that I'm willing to help in the future.
Hoping my kids will see this change in Mom and follow the lead. It's so easy to not try, or give up when the going gets hard.
Is there something you've been asked to do, but feel you can't?
Tell it to the Lord.
(And try not to take a year to do that!)
