Spiritual Sunday "Never Meant to Walk Alone"

Thanks Charlotte and Ginger for hosting these great Spiritual Sunday

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.  It's not."  Dr. Seuss

Thanks Guys...thanks for your comments last Sunday and on thursday. Thanks for being in my corner....and for believing in me.  Your words gave me courage to not give in to fear....to stand up and speak my truth. 

I was super nervous.....but I stayed....and pushed through the fear and spoke my truth. The response was amazing. They said it was powerful...that I'm a speaker...that they're glad I joined with them and they want to help me.  I felt totally wiped after....but something in me knows....He's preparing me..training me to not be afraid...to stand up....to shine His Light...the Light that lit up the darkness that I lived in. Nothing else could penetrate it. Nothing else could break through....only Him. He made the difference.   I know I need to tell...to give hope...to show nothing is impossible to overcome. And besides.....I owe Him....

March 30th 9:30-noon I'll be speaking to 75 women. I just got an email confirming that. 

Thanks Guys...thanks again for being in my corner.


We were never meant to walk this road alone...you carry me.....and I will carry you....be your strength...pull you through...

The Holy Spirit is at work in you, Sarah. So, even if you have never thought of yourself as a public speaker... well, I know you'll do great! Your life is an incredible witness to all who read your book, visit your blogs, or hear you speak. Thanks be to God!

Sarah,

Just read about your speech and I'm soo glad you were able to conquer the fear and share your speech! I am like you....fear paralyzes me! But now that I know that and can recognize it when it happens, that is when I am able to call upon the Lord, surrender my weakness and allow HIM to work and be victorious!

There is no doubt you were such a blessing to so many and brought Glory to the Lord! Great Job Sarah!!

love and hugs my friend!!

Bernie said...

Good for you, Sarah! I'm not surprised it went so well, and I know you'll do good on the 30th too. When you have something to say (and you do!), the words flow out easier. Praying for you!

Crystal Mary said...

Oh Sarah, I am so pleased you went well, it will give you the confidence...You CAN!!!
I love the scripture, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
You can, you can...
Everyone sitting listening to you is only one person..and each one of them has their won misgivings..you are the light shining for them, the encourager...don't be daunted!! You have done it!! And, as your song depicts, you are not alone. Much love CML

You are such a sweet blessing. I am so happy to know you. Love to you and yours

Amrita said...

Our strength comes from God - He has equipped us with every spiritual blessing.

Renee said...

How exciting, Sarah. Wonderful and congrats to you. We often feel like we cannot accomplish what God has planned for us ~ and that is just the way it should be! God accomplishes it through us and the gifts he has given us...Yahoo!

Just Be Real said...

Sarah, thank you once again for sharing. God has an awesome plan for you dear.

hip-chick said...

We are never alone and what we feel we might not be able to do God is there to help us through.

Clif said...

Thanks for reporting on your speaking experience. I knew you would make it and do fine. I am excited about what God is doing through you. I read somewhere that one message properly delivered is equal to eight hours of physical labor. It is a drain on you emotionally. Keep going!! Great video.

Pamela said...

Oh, Sarah, I'm so happy all went well with you. God promises His nearness. My daughters and I spoke at a women's meeting this week, too, and He was near to us, too. I'm thankful He can be two places at one time!

Blessings...Pamela

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for sharing a touching song. It's good to know that we were never meant to walk this road alone. I too am glad I'm not alone.

I appreciate your walk of faith; encouraging others that we can overcome the hurts, pain, sorrows, and griefs.

Blessings and peace.

Donnie said...

I'm glad everything went smoothly and when He is with us we have everything.

Debbie said...

Woohooo! Look at you, bursting through that door that our Father had opened for you. He's going to continue to speak through you, and it's going to be so fun being on this end watching this metamorphosis take place.

Vintagesouthernlife said...

I'm g;ad everything went well. I know God has big plans for you and he will be with you.

Nana Jul said...

Awesome...another opportunity to shine! He did it before, and He'll do it again..through you!
But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him. For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are beings saved and those who are perishing!..You are a sweet fragrance, aroma that lingers..and it is by faith you stand firm!! We will be praying!

Jillian said...

God is good! Amazing how he gives us strength when we need it. Always amazes me.

Natasha said...

I am so glad to hear that all went well. We all knew it would!

Blessings and best wishes always,
Natasha.

Hope you are having an awesome week.
