Preparing To Speak

One week from today (Saturday) I will be speaking on the topic of gratitude at a ladies luncheon at my church.  I've known for more than a month that I would be doing it, and all sorts of thoughts have run through my head in anticipation of the event.  My feelings have run the gamut.

Fear. Inadequacy. Confidence. Uncertainty. Worry. Humility.

I've been jotting things down for weeks that I might include in my notes.  The other night I started making the basic outline and then began to fill it in with points and scriptures.  I was surprised at how quickly the thoughts came, but I guess I shouldn't be, since I've been focused on the topic and gratitude scriptures since January when I read Nancy Leigh DeMoss' book.

I'm still in process of studying and writing, so if you think of me this week, would you pray for me?  I've had experience teaching ladies Bible studies and children's lessons, but this still seems different.  It will definitely be the largest group I've ever spoken to. 

Have a good weekend,
