Growing Out of My Comfort Zone

It's been a while since I posted a blog so I guess it's about time.

For anyone that knows me you know that I like to be in the background. I am perfectly happy to be part of the supporting cast. At church Sandra teaches "our" Sunday School class while I sit quietly by. I put together the power points for the worship service and I am the sound guy. I guess you could say these are my comfort zones.

Well I guess that is all about to change. I guess it all started with the movie Courageous. If you haven't seen it yet I can't recommend it highly enough. It's all about us men standing up and doing our part. Anyways I put together a men's fellowship for the guys of our church to come together, eat, and watch the movie. To most that wouldn't sound like much, but like I said I prefer to be in the background. In fact my father in law was really surprised that I stepped out of my "normal" to put the fellowship together. Anyways the plan is now that this will turn into a monthly event that I will be heading up. It will consist of food, fellowship, and a short devotion lead by someone. Well I think the first one I will be doing the devotion and it will be "What is a man of courage?". I don't know if I will be doing the devotion every time, we will just have to see. I have also committed to start sharing the teaching load of our college and career Sunday school class. My first time teaching the class will be coming up in a couple of weeks. At this point I'm clueless on what I will be speaking on but we will see what happens.

Where is all this leading ? I'm not really sure. Am I nervous. Yes, but I know God will lead me into whatever he has for me.
