I've been preparing my first ever Young Life talk this past week because I'm speaking at club tomorrow. Public speaking is one of my biggest fears so I've been a little nervous. Honestly not too bad yet, but I know that I will be freaking out come 7:00 tomorrow evening.

Today the sermon at church was about facing your fears... we heard a guy share about how he overcame his fear of speaking in front of people when he was asked to give his testimony at a men's retreat.

Pretty much every week at NorthStar I feel like God is speaking directly to me through Scott... and I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels that way. It's amazing.

--Okay, I wrote all the above yesterday but never published it... so now I'm going to continue but it's today- the day of the talk! Ahh. I'm still not too terribly nervous, but I just did it for Chelcie and it was harder than I thought it was going to be.

Continuing on the "thankful" theme... I am so thankful for God speaking through Scott at church yesterday about facing fears. Because God has given me this privilege of talking to these kids, I am confident that He is going to speak through me tonight. I am confident in the fact that it is not my words, but His.

I want to blog more about yesterday's sermon sometime... I'll post the podcast link when it's up! but for now I need to keep going over my talk and study for my test tomorrow!
