One of the most difficult things for me to do is witness. I spent five years without saying much of anything to anybody. But I came to a point where I decided enough was enough. I wanted to be used of God to bring others to Christ. I told God I would start right on the street where I lived.
I did not have any tracts so I wrote everything down on paper. Then I went about passing out the papers to people on my street. Most of them got offended. A couple who were previously friendly walked past me angrily while out on their walk. I could hear their feet pounding as they ignored me when I greeted them. I began to fear. I didn’t finish the street. I quit.
Right afterwards I came in the house and read the devotion for that day out of the “my daily bread”. One of the verses where I was reading was Matt. 13:14 which had the statement , ” Oh ye of little faith, wherefore did you doubt? ”
I realized when I was out there I was walking on water. Its when I started to pay attention to the waves around me that I began to fear.
About a week later I witnessed again. I went to a town nearby and began to witness door to door. It was in a neighborhood that wasnt exactly safe for a white woman to be in going house to house alone, but alone I went. Then I preached at a local conveinance store, again not something that a woman should be doing, but just proving a point that you can do anything and not be so fearful if you focus and go into with prayer.
Was I afraid? You bet I was. But it got easier after prayer and just doing it anyway with the fear still there. You never know what you can do until you try.
