I have always loved speaking in front of people, and the more people the better I like it. It isn’t so much a look-at-me thing as it is a too-cool-for-words opportunity to entertain, to teach, to make people laugh.
The slightly embarrassing truth is, I’ve had a dream since I was a little girl of being in an arena speaking to 10,000 or more people. Loving on them all and making them smile and maybe even cry with a story or thought. Telling them what God has done for me and how madly He loves them and what He wants more than anything to do for them.
I’ve met many people in my lifetime who stated emphatically their fear of talking in front of a crowd. And being on a stage? Out of the question. I always stare wide-eyed and think, “Let me do it!”
I’d like to believe that one day my time will come.
For right now I’m happy teaching and leading small groups and doing ice-breakers for our church’s marriage ministry.
If God decides He wants to put me on a mic one day to talk about His crazy love in front of a million, I’ll be so there.
