in His strength and grace

Have you ever felt in over your head? Have you ever felt inadequate for the task at hand? Have you ever feared that you just wouldn’t do a good enough job?

When I was asked to serve as the GlobalFingerprints Africa Director, my first response was WHAT? You want ME to do THIS?

I had a Moses moment. Well, several moments, actually. 😉 Moments of doubts, fears, and questions.

When God called Moses to lead the people out of Egypt, Moses said, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” (Exodus 3:11)

     But God said, “I will be with you.” (Exodus 3:12)

Later in his conversation with God, Moses said, “What if they do not believe me or listen to me…” (Exodus 4:1)

     And God gave Moses three miraculous signs so that the Israelites would believe.

Then, Moses said, “O Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.” (Exodus 4:10)

     But God told Moses that He will help him speak and teach him what to say.

With all of Moses’ questions, what-if’s and doubts, God spoke His Truth to Moses – that He would be with him, provide for him, help him, and teach him.

Over several weeks, I talked and listened to God, and I talked and prayed with Mark. A LOT! I brought my questions, my what-if’s and my doubts to God. 

And then I said, yes!  

The Lord chose me for this role, at this time. I’m not sure why He chose me, but He does that. He calls different people, at different times, for different things!

The Bible tells me that God’s grace is sufficient for me. That His power is made perfect in my weakness. Paul says, “Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)

So, with my weaknesses, but in the Lord’s strength and by His grace, I will offer leadership to the GlobalFingerprints ministry in Africa, and seek to develop and expand GlobalFingerprints, giving hope to some of the most vulnerable children in the world, for today and for eternity.

In His strength and grace, Cathy Lynn
