Few weeks ago, our Sunday bulletin provided info for church members who were interested in assisting because there was a need for volunteers in the prayer tent.
First, I was excited but then doubt entered my mind because I don't have a boldness like others. However, the Sunday after-there was the announcement again. I decided that I'll go.
As the week approached, I kept praying that God keep me focused on what I'm being called to do...
I was called to volunteer
I was called to glorify Him
I was called to represent Him to the best of my ability
Friday afternoon was a rally but I was late in picking up my t-shirt. Ugh...
I arrived early yesterday morning and picked up my shirt.
I inquired where the connection tent was located and then I was directed. As I helped set up chairs-I still kept praying for God to place me where He needed for me to be and to give me the heart and strength to minister for Him.
See, I didn't go there to represent me or my church to gain more numbers. I went to Convoy of Hope for God to use me in praying with someone seeking prayer or to open the door of opportunity for someone wanting/seeking to know Him more.
I prayed that the intent of others didn't distract me from God's calling.
I prayed that the intent wasn't about numbers but the intent was for souls.
I prayed it was not a competition of churches, donations or works.
I prayed that everything said and done was a sincere effort and that if there was any glory or thanking-it was raised to God.
It's not about you
It's not about me
It's about that person or family needing to hear,
"Is there anything I can pray for you today?"
Connection...it's all about Him
