Thankful for Obedience over Fear.

Started a new small group. Going through "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan with some of the Middle School Volunteer ladies.

My previous experience as a small group leader: leading small groups of 6th,7th, and 8th grade girls and leading with Brett in a couples small group.

Confession: I was super nervous about our first meeting. Not sure why...probably bc I've never led a group that wasn't a group of girls under the age of 13 or with Brett. I was super excited about starting this group, but nervous at the same time.

Reality: As always, it was such a blessing and I left feeling so thankful for all of them. I sat amazed as I listened to their incredible stories and journeys they have taken with Christ..... and I was thankful for what we will learn in the coming weeks as we study.....the things I will learn from them.

What I walked away with: Unfortunately, this is something I come back to every now and then...something I know, but something I have to be reminded of every now and then.......being obedient will always win and He will show Himself when we are obedient. When we take risks, put ourselves out there, and follow in obedience....fear is overcome and He wins.

Thankful for obedience over fear.

Hey girl! I'm going to follow you, too! I'm glad to hear you're reading Crazy Love. I've heard such good things about that book! I'm going to have to add it to my list!
