Preaching at Our Church!

So a lot of you know (if you read AGH) that on Sunday, the 27th of September, I preached at our church, the River of Tampa Bay. A lot of you know that I was really nervous and stressed. The anxiety and anticipation is the worst part of it – but to tell you the truth, the minute I took that microphone from the other young preacher (my friend Janezzia) ahead of me, the room became small.

I didn’t even think about the cameras.

I just delivered the message.

And I wasn’t nervous a bit!

I want to give a BIG thank you for all who prayed for my big day! I preached in front of 2,000 people and around the world live on TV. I was also broadcasted into millions of homes all across Europe!

I want to share with you the video of me preaching – and after you watch the entire thing, tell me the truth… Do I sound like a little girl? Like, I don’t know, a mouse? I sound so weak in it and tiny and girly…I cringe everytime I hear myself! LOL! ๐Ÿ˜›

    That was soooo great and inspiring, Madison!!! You are such a powerful speaker! I liked the beginning too, you’re funny! You actually didn’t sound little-girlish at all. You sounded very mature, and I can tell that you are being moved by the Holy Ghost in amazing ways. Keep it up!

    Madi, that was absolutely AMAZING! God really spoke through you! You defiantly have an amazing gift of teaching that The holy spirit gave you. You were so confident! I could never preach like that! I couldn’t believe it was you! God really filled you and spoke through you! You are so beautiful and God made you and has a great purpose for you! I loved the story about the missionary you told! Love you Madi! I’m so happy for you!

    PS, You don’t sound like a little girl at ALL! I love your voice! It’s beautiful!

    That was AMAZING!!!! You did such a great job!!! You have a very strong and powerful voice that didn’t sound girlish at ALL! You did an amazing job compared to me when I speak in front of people, I always talk soft and hold the microphone in my tight sweaty hands like five feet in front of my face (no one can hear me at all o.O). You should do that more often, your great at it!

    Madi that was great! You totally do not sound like a little girl at all. You were empowering, enthusiastic and I could tell you enjoyed being up there! You really should look into public speaking–you did great. I would’ve been sooo nervous >.<

      Aw, thank you SO much! God totally helped me… I was so nervous! LOL! I thought I could never have done that, either – but my pastor has a way of making people get outside their comfort zones. ๐Ÿ˜› I don’t think anyone expected me (I have a quiet personality around people I don’t know and don’t always have the nerve to do stuff) to do that. I totally bet you could do it! ๐Ÿ˜€

You have a voice. I'd love to hear it!
