hold your right hand

(check out this fun tutorial on messy buns from Elsie's blog a few weeks ago.
Tried it and love it!)

Feeling a bit (read: VERY) overwhelmed tonight.
We start staff training/camp 2010 tomorrow.
My free time goes to pretty much "non-existent" in less than 24 hours.
This is especially tough for me this year for some reason.
Selfish...that's me.

I've been spending lots of time in the Word this month.
Isaiah, especially.
I think that is the only reason I'm not in the fetal position crying right now.

Doing ministry requires such a great amount of selflessness.
Some days I'm good with this. (Read: some days God is gracious with me)
Some days I stomp my feet like a child and complain.

But truth be told,
I wouldn't choose to do anything else for the next 10 weeks.
I'm still in love with what I do.
Once again, I was humbled tonight at the reminder that God chose me to be used here.

So, will you please pray for me/us? We are 70 people trying to be selfless, serving children and teenagers, and emptying ourselves each moment so that we can be filled with Jesus. It's HARD and the enemy does NOT want us to do this. But we KNOW that He will provide us with everything we need. He promises...

"For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, 'Fear not, I am the one who helps you.'" -Isaiah 41:13
