Attacks of the Attacker

Please pray for me this week guys. I'm feeling a little inadequate and discouraged. I know that I'm where I'm suppose to be, but I feel so unable to do anything. Well, you know what they say about feelings....they can't be trusted.

I do have to say that last week was a lot of fun. It was VBS. A couple of the youth and myself were in the skits each night. I was Princess Flora Rose :) We had a good turn out and it gave an opportunity to meet people and hang out with a couple of the youth guys. I really have enjoyed the youth. They are a cool group of teens.

Pray that I gain more confidence in my teaching. That is where me and GOd are struggling right now. I really stink at teaching. I keep telling God this, but I know I'm where He wants me. Hence, the confusion. I don't know what I'm suppose to do. Sometimes I think why am I getting involved in youth ministry when I can't teach. But my heart won't let it go. I think I'm more cut out to build relationships and mister on a helper level. Yet, God keeps opening up doors for me to lead. Talk about a confusing situation. Who knows? All I know is that I am here for a reason. God has plans for my life and I am his workmanship( Jeremiah 29:11 & Ephesians 2:10). I here on earth for a reason and I'm here in Chula for a reason. Therefore, all I can do is trust. :)

Leaning on His promises,

Jen

You are in our prayers! I believe God has placed you in this area because he wants to strengthen your teaching skills!!! Just think about David. He had know idea that all those days, while watching the sheep and playing around with his sling, God was strengthening his skills to prepare him for what He(God) had prepared for him(David).
I hoep that makes sense. :)
Love you!
