What Dreams May Come, You are Still God

Psalm 91:You will not be afraid of the terror by night, Or of the arrow that flies by day; 

 

Nightmares about Jonathan last night, tears this morning.

 

Lord, I know that perfect peace does not mean absence of troubles. I lay my dreams, my nightmares, and my sorrow at your feet. Shape them as you will. I trust you will make them beautiful. Amen.

I Need to Tell My Story Without Reliving It

Today I give my first speech. You’d think as much as I write out encouragement to you that this step would be easy, but it’s not. My passion for you moves me forward, but my emotions make me want to hide in my turtle shell. No matter personality, I am realizing that I must learn to speak to people with more ease. Face to face, is a necessity when addressing all the levels at which I may be called to speak.

Standing in the G.A.P. (Gather, Assess, Provide) covers so many entities. I will need to speak effectively to schools, churches, medical providers, mental health professionals, judges, lawyers, parents and teens. So I joined Toastmasters International. Look for one in your area if you want to learn how give effective presentations.

Afterwards:

Made it through the speech with excellent feedback.

Things to work on:

Reduce my need for notes, slow down and make more eye contact.
