Being Brave

I’m going to be brave this year.  I’m going to attempt to join the Kansas City Renaissance Festival.  I’m going to either audition or join as a part of the stage management team.  Dale is supportive, so that helps a lot.  But I want to be brave for God, and I think this will help me.  If I can start building those relationships with others outside of my normal sphere of influence, if I can conquer the spirit of timidity, then maybe I can learn to stop feeling like an inadequate teenager.  So please keep me in your prayers this year.

2 Timothy 1:7New Living Translation (NLT)

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

I’ve sent my information to the Maestro.  I’ve put all the relevant dates on the calendar.  I’ve prayed.  At least, I think I’ve prayed.  I’ll pray again.  But I feel really good about this new journey.  I hope that God will somehow use me for his glory, and that I can have fun doing his work.  But please pray for me as I take this step.

In Him, and for Him,

Hugs, Melinda
