“Then Will I Make Weak Things Become Strong unto Them”
This week was meetings, meetings, meetings, but it was also really amazing. My companion and I met a lot of amazing people who are potentially interested in meeting with us. We also had a wonderful zone conference and missionary leadership conference.
At zone conference, my companion and I taught about overcoming fear. It was all about doing the things that are hard for us and becoming stronger. We did some really great role playing. I pretended I had to contact a group of teenagers, which is really hard for me. After sweating a little, I did it and it was really helpful. We had everyone stand up and say, “The Lord can do this, I can be an instrument.” I think it was just the right amount of corny and inspiring.
I also talked in church on Sunday, which was a great experience. I know that this life is all about conquering fear and growing closer to God through obedience and faith. Sometimes we complicate things too much, when in reality we just need to exercise faith, even when doing the things that are hard for us. It is still hard for me to talk to large groups of people, but I do it more often now because I know the Lord will bless me for doing what is hard for me. What is hard for you? This week I challenge you to focus on a weakness, and God will change it from a weakness to a strength through your efforts and the Atonement.
Love you all and thanks for your support. Have a great week!
