God, Is That You??

Lately I've been feeling like God is saying it's time for a change in my life. I've been running our church nursery for about the last five years. It's a job I love but I think it's time to move on. So I talked with some of the leaders in my church and decided it was time. My last week will be the 24th and 25th of this month. It's sad to see it go but I'm so excited about where God will be using me next.

I worked with the Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders this last weekend and really enjoyed it. I have a feeling this is where God's leading me but I'm keeping my ears and eyes open for what He wants.

It is going to be a big step since right now I'm getting paid for what I do and soon that will be gone. I just keep reminding myself... If our family will continue being faithful to God, He will be faithful to us!!

Stacy, I know what you mean...at my old church I ran a fifth grade classroom for a year, then moved to the nursery for one year then finished my last year in First Time Visitors ministry. I also worked on building a new website for Ed then transcribed his sermons for awhile (but I got paid for that one.) Point is, volunteering and working for your church can be a huge blessing but it can also burn you out. I ended up taking a small break while I was pregnant with Claire. I know God loves when we give time to our local church but he also wants us to be with our families as well. I know it's a big step for you but God will let you know where he wants you. Good Luck and congrats on serving five years!
