Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow.Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you.

Psalm 25:3-5 (NLT)

I have a very talented husband and an energetic friend, Stan, who encourage me to do and be more than I ever thought possible. Their prodding echoes what I am learning this fall with the help of Beth Moore’s Bible study, Believing God. I have felt for some months that God is calling me to do some speaking for Him and share God’s storyin my life. These guys continually push and prod me to get at it. Sometimes I just wish for a Cinderella existence—a fairy tale ending—without all the work. But if you think about it, Cinderella had her problems, too. In fact, she lived in a dysfunctional household with sisters who mistreated her; life was not fair. Yet as in all good fairy tales, it ended with the handsome Prince sweeping her off to the castle to be his bride. My life is hardly a fairy tale but I want the reality ofJesus to be seen in me and His glory reflected on my face. For you see, I will be His bride some day and carried off to His glorious home, heaven. So now we are working to update my website and blog with screencasts (as I said, Mark is very skilled in all of this!) Of course theprodders told me they were just doing a sound and screen check for future recording. Next time I will think a little more about the background details! Check it out in the left margin of the blog under Links. I am constantly amazed at the opportunities God gives us to serve Him. Be ready for a little stretching!
