The women’s event at the little country church went well. I felt comfortable there among them, a very loving and welcoming group. My cold didn’t interfere too much with my efforts to speak. The pastor was very appreciative and complimentary of what I offered to her flock.
I may never have another opportunity to do that again, but it was a good exercise. I realized I can do whatever God calls me to do. Public speaking is a scary proposition. But when the Lord gives you information in His Word that you feel Him calling you to share with others, you do it.
Today I’m absolutely worn out. God delayed the worst of my cold, it seems, to get me through yesterday. Today I am coughing, feverish, and exhausted.
