Journal Prompt

Write about a ceremony

Please follow and like us:

In December of 2007 I became a licensed minister.  To say that it was a humbling experience would be an understatement.  I felt completely unequipped for the task at hand.  Prior to that day I had only taught one women’s bible study.  The lesson was on “prayer” which is a subject that I’m passionate about. However, I had no idea how to prepare for a sermon.  To this day I’m still trying to figure out how I got away with it.  I wasn’t hiding in plain sight, but I wasn’t jockeying for a position upfront either.

The church where I was licensed no longer exists and the pastor is now deceased.  But I am forever grateful for the confidence he displayed in giving me my minister’s license.  I was blessed to have my mother and brother at this ceremony both of whom are now deceased also.  Today I am much more confident in my scriptural knowledge and ability to preach the gospel.  Yet I’m always mindful to remain humble. 

Using this journal prompt write about a ceremony in your own life.  How did it make you feel?  What did you learn from it?  Enjoy…
