Ask the Lord to Stand with You

A few days ago I was provided an opportunity to do something I have wanted to do and prayed about for many years, teach Sunday School. Isn't that great? I feel like this opportunity is . . .

But the LORD  stood with me and gave me strength.                                  2 Timothy 4:17

I hope you are enjoying a wonderful Saturday.  My sweet grandson has spent the day with me while his mom sleeps. She’s a working nurse on midnight shift.  I wasn’t sure if I could keep up with him all day, but the LORD gave me strength.

A few days ago I was provided an opportunity to do something I have wanted to do and prayed about for many years, teach Sunday School.  Isn’t that great?  I feel like this opportunity is something God is providing me, and conversely I think I might be an answer to someone else’s prayer.  So, what’s holding me back?  Only one thing, am I able to make the commitment physically?  I know it sounds like virtually no exertion is involved, but for me just getting there takes a great deal of effort, and I want to honor my commitments.  I know the answer, but hesitate because I know I have limitations. I also know that God will let me run around in circles like the Israelites in the desert as long as I can, but avoiding the opportunity only hurts me.   So, I will ask God to stand with me and give me strength.   Have you ever been in a similar situation?  Please share.

God bless you.

  1. I have often “overscheduled” but usually make it through those moments. Taking it in pieces, trying not to look at the whole thing helps. Hugs, Robin 💐

  2. Absolutely. I started a Bible study at our church a few months ago. I picked Nehemiah because I have always loved that book. We started and Ezra for some background then dove into Nehemiah. It’s amazing how God opened my eyes and showed me new truths as I was studying for our group. The Holy Spirit will do the same for you!

  3. Definitely been there. I found If it is not from God I do indeed run in circles but only for a time. God always leads me out, gently teaches me and directs me to His plan. And most importantly uses whatever I had to go through for His glory. God bless your new ministry with the children 😁
