This Sunday, I was humbled.
Do you remember when I posted about not being Mormon enough because I had yet to receive a calling and I was just feeling down about it?
Well this past Sunday, I got my very first calling.
Daniel and I have been called to be "teachers" for the Nursery. I am super excited about it!
I went to tell the Relief Society President that I wouldn't be in Relief Society anymore but I still wanted to help out as much as I could. (I LOVE Relief Society guys. Like...a lot. It may or may not be my favorite part of church...)
She told me that she knew I was going to be leaving soon because SHE went to ask for me for a Relief Society calling & the Bishopric told her that they had a calling for me already.
I almost cried right then and there. There were two positions I could have filled that my church wanted me to fill.
I felt horrible for doubting the Lord a few weeks ago. I felt horrible for doubting myself.
This all reminded me of my very favorite scripture: Jeremiah 29:11
I also need to keep in mind that God has a plan for me, and he will proved the way if I just follow it and don't question it.
But a VERY BIG part of my personality is that I like to be in control. I like things to happen when I want them to. I need to stop that. I am on God's time, not my own.
I feel badly that I didn't have faith in the Lord's plan, and finding out that the reason it "took so long" was because the Bishopric had to pray for which calling I should take.
There is a reason that Daniel and I were called to the nursery and I can't wait to find it out.
From now on, I am going to work more on just accepting what is and what isn't and knowing that what isn't--isn't for a reason. God knows the reason and I should trust in him.
I mean, if you're going to trust in anyone, shouldn't it be God?
I think so!
