This morning is my morning to volunteer at my kids' school. I usually enjoy my time there very much, but today I'm really dreading it. I'm dreading it because I need to confront someone. And I don't like confrontation all that much.
I coordinate a very big project at my kids' school. I took it on for the first time last year, and made myself, and my family, absolutely crazy...just ask my mom who was here for about 2 weeks and barely saw me! I swore I wouldn't do it again this year, but I actually prayed about it and felt like I was supposed to. And really, the second year is much easier because you've learned what to do and what not to do, and probably my biggest lesson after last year was that I need to delegate.
So...delegate I did. And so far it's been pretty smooth sailing. Until last week. I delegated a very important task to someone I probably shouldn't have, and I spent more time than I had last week doing damage control because many mistakes were made. Mistakes are just that--they're mistakes--and they're fixable and forgiveable, but I'm still a little flustered about the whole thing.
I've been praying since last week about what I need to say to this person. I want my words to be seasoned with grace and forgiveness, but there are some important things I need to communicate to this person, and I'm not sure how exactly to do that and be heard. So, I think I need some prayer support here. Will you ask God to give me the words to say, the grace with which to speak them, and for them to be received? I would be very grateful!
