ALL MISSION GRANTS HAVE BEEN PAID!! GIVE THANKS!
From President Linda Pelot
In case you have not heard, Jonah and the Whale, BFF (Best Friends Forever), were special guests at the Christian Life workshop held in Wausau on January 18th. In preparation for that, I had read and reread the story of Jonah. I was reminded of the struggle that I had with God and with myself before I put my name in for the position that I currently hold. I did not feel capable. I did not feel ready. I spent two weeks giving God excuses as to why I could and did not want to serve. It is a big commitment, and I was not capable. But what I was forgetting that when we are asked by God to serve Him, we do not have to be capable, we only need to be willing.
God loves to put us in a position where we know that we cannot do things on our own. He wants us to learn to have to rely on Him for every aspect of what we do. And so began an amazing journey of service. So I ask you to honestly ask God if He wants you to serve in a more demanding position within the LWML. It is a wonderful organization of mission and service and utilizes the skills of almost 3500 members within the district. And if God has been tapping you on the shoulder to put your name in for nomination on the district board, or within your society or zone, do not do like Jonah did and try to run away.
We are born with certain work that God has prepared for us to be doing. Do not run away! Serving Him in the LWML and walking with Jesus at your side because you really feel out of your comfort zone is an amazing journey. If you are ready to be blessed, you will not run away.
