    When have you protested what God wanted you to do? What did you learn? (Exodus 4:1-12)

        

    "I can really relate to exodus 4 verses 10 - 12. Growing up I was afraid to speak for multiple reasons, such as my accent. I’m very soft spoken and I was never able to share my thoughts with my family. As a result, I wouldn't speak in school, and I eventually dropped out . I didn't think I would ever be anything more then a machinist or welder. I didn't think I needed speaking skills. And up until now, this is true.

     

    Through a recovery group, people told me that the only way you can have sobriety is to not say “no" to a request. This started me on my journey to speak. I shared my story with 150 people - trust me, I was scared. I hoped I would pass out or something, but none of that happened. I’m forever grateful for that opportunity. I believe God works through people and I have the right people in my life now who challenge me to be better every day. I also pray daily for his will for me, how I can help others, and to live out of love and not fear."
