Check off one of my "part of my life in 2008"
Wednesday, May 14, 2008
In my introduction on my Sparkpage, I included a short list of things that I wanted to do this year. Yesterday, one of those goals was realized!
I LOVE teenagers. My favorite job involved working with teens, I love our home to be filled with our daughter's friends (almost not teens anymore!) and we host a group of teens called "Community of Artists" (through our church) at our home twice a month.
One of the girls from Community asked if I would be her spiritual mentor recently. She is a new Christian and is so on fire about her faith that she prayed for an adult to come into her life and come alongside her in her studies and discoveries.
I don't feel worthy or even ready to fill this role, but I recognize that my Father God is calling me to this role despite my dragging feet. Elena and I met yesterday for the first time and it was really great. I'm looking forward to meeting with her on a weekly basis. I have to remember to stay in prayer, asking for wisdom and guidance, and not fall into the trap of panicking and thinking I have to have a plan and all of the answers.
What's that old saying. . . "Be careful what you wish for. . " You just might get it!!
