The title is a bit dramatic, but it fits me perfectly; at least for today. It's funny when I read the Bible and the "Devotionals" ask about your most trying or difficult moments, I just have to laugh. As I journey through the Bible, honestly speaking - I don't have anything to compare.
But since it's about 2000 years later, I can truly say that my most trying and difficult moments are those of most people; and that is the frustration and tension that you face in the work place.
I'm "still" the Acting Lieutenant and it's only been 1 year, 5 months and 12 days. But, "Who is counting?"
Anyway, today is another Power Point Presentation and I can honestly say that they don't scare me anymore. And, not that I was actually afraid, it was the fact that I didn't have any guidance and I did not and still do not like public speaking. Now that I've mastered them, (power points, not public speaking) I welcome the challenge. I've learned through the entire ordeal that God was trying to build up my character and take me outside my comfort zone.
Yes, I was very resistant and yes, I had a tantrum here and there. It's sounds so funny when I say it, but that experience yielded a Detective Sergeant of the year award as well as a Special Mother's Day interview in our Police News Article. WOW - how incredible is that?
And just think, I was hiding out in my own little world, hoping and praying that God would not pick me. In the end, I've adopted a new motto - Isaiah 6:8 - Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"
