So I was asked to step in and teach a couple of our bible studies on friday nights, This required stepping out of my comfort zone (I am normally a very shy, quiet person). But I agreed because I love to study and especially love to study the Word; and the more revelation I get, the more I see that from Genesis to Revelation, it's all about Jesus! Anyway, I was told I did a great job and that I had a gift for teaching. I secretly had always wanted to teach the bible to 8-12 year old children. So, to be sure, I took three different spiritual giftings tests. All three gave the same results in the same order; teaching, empathy and exhortation. Confermation? I think so because ever since then it's like God is telling me: "I've told you what your calling and purpose is, now go and do it". I know that He would not ask me to do something that I was not able to do. I have to get over my fear of failing; For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power and love and a sound mind. I also know that to him who knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin. So, I'm getting materials and courage together and plan to have a summer bible study one day a week for six weeks. Got to get my feet wet sooner or later! Could use your prayerful support.

    I have been a shy person for a long time. But, I also have the gift of teaching, so I teach and enjoy the teaching!
