This week Gladys Knight performed here in Shreveport. It was really amazing when she bore her testimony and when the choir sang. The whole reason for the concert was to reach out to more people to tell them about the church and the gospel.
The rest of the week was mostly service. One of the things we did was paint a house. It made me remember King Benjamin’s words when he said, “when you are in the service of your fellow beings, you are in the service of God.”
I felt like I wasn't giving my all last week so I sat on the couch and looked up at the picture of Jesus Christ looking back at me. I asked him "what more do I have to do?” and “How can I do it better?" I sat there for a while but nothing happened … just silence and then something came to me. It said, “fast and pray for the things you think you are lacking and you will have them.” The next Sunday was Fast Sunday so I made up my mind to fast for answers to two questions:
1. How can I have more faith that when my mouth is opened, you will fill it with the words which need to be heard?
2. How can I trust you even more and have confidence to talk to even more people about your gospel?
