comfort zone

Wow things sure have been a whirlwind. My Bishop did not waste anytime getting things going for me. Only three weeks ago were my full blessings restored-This week I became a VT to five sisters and received 2 callings.

I was called to teach Relief Society. I really wanted to say no, for I am young, single and really not sure I have anything to offer the sisters of my ward who are much more experienced than me. However, I was once told by a former Bishop if you are extended a call and worthy you should accept. For there is some reason you are supposed to be there-whether it is for your own growth or for the others you will serve.

I anxiously accepted knowing this call will stretch me out of my comfort zone of sitting on the back row observing what goes on. I know that with the Lord I can do may not be comfortable at first, but with time I know I will come to love and enjoy teaching.

"Don’t live your life in despair, feeling sorry for yourself because of the mistakes you have made. Let the sunshine in by doing the right things—now. It may be difficult to begin, but pick up the scriptures and immerse yourself in them. Look for favorite passages. Lean on the Master’s teachings, on His servants’ testimonies. Refresh your parched soul with the word of God. The scriptures will give you comfort and the strength to overcome. "
