It was a beautiful, sunny, June day. I was outside enjoying the sunshine, when I received a call. It was my youth pastor Josh. He told me that he was not going to be at youth group that night, and he needed someone one to speak.
I remember being little nervous when he first asked. However, I wasn’t as nervous as I have been in other public speaking situations. I believe it was because God had already placed the basis of a lesson within my heart.
I arrived early to a dark and quiet youth center. I had to get there earlier than usual, because I had to put together my PowerPoint. Usually I arrive after the worship team has started to practice.
As the night progressed, I got a tad nervous; I remember breathing heavily right before I went on stage. To calm my self down, I took deep breaths and prayed.
Though I was not perfect, I thought I was effected. I give all the credit to God. It was because God was there and working in me that I did as well as I did.
