Mission Plan

This past month in primary we have been talking about missionary work. It has always been a topic I personally have put on the back burner. I did not serve a mission formally I guess you would say, and just kept it at a distance I guess. I considered being a good person and a good neighbor good enough to call myself a member missionary. But recently I have been wondering is that enough? If I believe the gospel to be true, why am I not anxiously engaged in sharing it openly with my associates? I suppose it's the fear of imposition or causing offense. I genuinly do not want my neighbors or friends to think I have an alterior motive. But I have seen the hand of the Lord in all things. As I have attended Missionary meeting I have seen how the Lord has put others in my path in more connected ways than one to know it is not just a coincidence. There is enough work sufficent wherever we are if we will see it. I have decided to pray to not be afraid of those missionary opportunites. What is there to lose anyway? I know that the gospel is true, it has brought me happiness and joy, and most of all purpose in life. What a gift to share huh? I am thankful for the Lord's help in all things; I believe He will make up the difference! "Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life." 2 Nephi 31:20
