A Best Yes (five minute friday on a monday)

joyYesterday I did something for the first time.

A week ago I said yes to something the Lord directed me to do and it positioned me in a place that I’ve been wanting to go in a long time.

I started walking out a dream.

I’ve wanted to be a speaker for a very long time. Crazy right? Most people shun public speaking but I have loved it since I did my first 4H speech in grade 6. I even won some awards in high school doing it.

I’ve spoken to children, teens and women. My husband and I have team-taught at family camp and maybe once in a Sunday service.

But yesterday, I stood up on a stage in front of a congregation that I know and love and spoke my first ‘teaching time’ all by myself.

The adrenaline rush was kind of crazy. The exploding joy I felt to be doing something that maybe I was made to do was something else. I can feel a little afterglow even as I type this.

Where this will go from here I have no idea. But I am glad I said yes this one time.

It was a Best Yes all the way.

About Lani

With six kids, a farm, a ministry and dreams poking out in every direction I need plenty of grace to keep all the balls in the air. The sweet thing is that when I drop them, that crazy grace of God is there telling me I'm still okay...and you are, too...welcome to this place of grace.
