Our church is fantastic
When my husband and I did this last year- we both got children’s ministry in our personality results. I always have worked with children- in fact, I was halfway through my bachelors in education to become an elementary school teacher. I love kids but if I am being honest here with friends- they really do scare me and this serving opportunity scares me too!!
Kids really are easy to understand! All in all they really only need a few essentials- food, shelter, clothing, and love. If you give them some candy every once in a while… they love you forever!! haha. That is the easy part. The “scary” part so too, would be the fact that I am in charge of their spiritual education when I am teaching them. God has guided me to this church and to these little ones. I have made a connection to these little kiddos half way and I love them beyond words. I just want to express how much of an honor that I feel that God has entrusted me to teach the love of him to these little souls. God has guided me to a place where I am able (and willing) to be able to minister to each and every one of these precious babies. It is an amazing gift.
When I leave each and every week after serving… I feel energized. I feel great because I have just shared Jesus with amazing little people! It is amazing to see little ones see and experience Jesus’ love for the first time. I am more blessed because of this opportunity that my church has allowed me to serve.
My challenge for you this week would be to…
– Pray! Ask God to guide your hand and heart. For your hand- ask your pastor how you can get involved in serving the church. I also recommend praying and asking God to guide your heart to move in a direction that will benefit his glory best-
Father God, We come together and I ask that you take my sister’s hearts and desire’s into your hands. Father, please help show them how they can best serve their church for your glory. I ask God that you please help give them words to ask and boldness to step up. Thank you for always loving us with un-repayable love
