I ponder over this regularly. I know that I am a child of God, and as such my personality is a gift from God. I am a shy person, not very outgoing, not very confident, and certainly not a scholar, and I hate being the centre of attention. I can honestly say I don't think I have any natural talents at all. So why do I feel so drawn to be at the front of Church. The whole process of preparing a sermon is stressful to me. I am riddled with self doubt, and then feel what I have prepared isn't good enough. I then get very anxious about getting up and delivering my sermon. It really is a phobia of mine. But it always seems to be well received and people are very positive with their feedback. Does God turn what I perceive as my weaknesses, and turn it into something positive. When people see me at the front of church, I am there for one reason and one reason only, and that is to glorify God.
