It's 5 AM and I have been up for the last hour preparing my Relief Society lesson. I've had this calling for only two months, and it has felt overwhelming to me. I feel inadequate and inexperienced. I was telling a good friend just yesterday that I've never wanted to ask to be released from a calling, but I just feel like I can't do this one.
As I was searching lds.org for stories to use during my lesson, I come across this quote from Pres. Monson that he shared in the July 2009 Liahona:
"Remember that you are entitled to our Father’s blessings in this work.
He did not call you to your privileged post to walk alone, without
guidance, trusting to luck. On the contrary, He knows your skill, He
realizes your devotion, and He will convert your supposed inadequacies
to recognized strengths. He has promised: “I will go before your face. I
will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in
your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up” (D&C 84:88).
Amazing how if we are searching, and praying, we come across just what we need to hear.
