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.

"[The Savior] is saying to us, "Trust me, learn of me, do what I do. Then, when you walk where I am going," He says, "we can talk about where you are going, and the problems you face and the troubles you have. If you will follow me, I will lead you out of darkness," He promises. "I will give you answers to your prayers. I will give you rest to your souls.""
