Today, I was the guest-speaker at a staff meeting of a small business. I was anxious because this is not a crowd I usually speak to. What would I say, and how? Would I speak in “we’s” or “you’s?” Would I speak to them as potential leaders or current followers? Would I use scripture? How much of me would I be willing to share? I undoubtedly had more questions than answers.
So the hours leading up to this involved alot of praying, from friends and me. Praying, praying and more praying.
And when I stood in front of this staff and my mouth opened, everything in me stood still except for my heartbeat and God in my heart. I spoke for 15 minutesbecause God only had 15 minutes of things to say. It was cool.
When you have a big opportunity to use your mouth for God, pray alllllllllllllllllllll the way leading up to it. Exhaust ALL your words through praying, because when God takes over to speak through you, you won’t need them. : )
