I was teaching from Exodus 4-7 today and noticed how reluctant Moses was to be a leader. He was like your average American child or teen, he argued with God. He had every excuse in the book why he could not be "the one." I can relate so much. I wonder why God wants me to do certain things. They take me out of my comfort zone. They are so not me! But my arguing with God hasn't worked. Just like Moses, God has answers to my objections. Don't you just hate that! I am not a reluctant leader. I've known for sometime that I am a visionary leader. I just thought I would be used in a more cutting edge situation rather than having to work thru tradition. Who am I to argue with God? I guess God wants me to be a change agent. Thanks to my dad, Jason, Rob, Thomas and other wise friends who have helped me wade thru my tough times and given me wisdom. Here I am, send me!
