I'm so excited to share a "little bit" of what God is up to in my life! (In case you missed yesterday's post, you may want to start here).
Over the past few years, I started to pray specifically about writing out my testimony.
Whenever I speak somewhere, without fail, others will ask if I have a book. Often someone will say, "I just wish my neighbor/mom/sister could hear your story. Please write your book".
However, one problem, I'm not a writer, and the thought of writing a book about my life seemed impossible.
Instead I kept praying. My friends and I sensed I should start writing my Red Hot Bible study.
And then last March God opened the door for me to meet with an amazing, well respected, international ministry. Since that time, I've been praying, writing scripts, meeting with the team, and watching God perform an absolute miracle before my very eyes.
Whereas I'm not at liberty to share all the details of our upcoming project, I do have permission to share the first part. Are you ready??
Coming up in a few weeks, I'm heading to.....
I grew up in Kokomo, so I'm heading there with the Day of Discovery film crew so they can make a documentary of my life.
Can you believe it?!
When it's complete, the documentary will be shown on TV stations around the country.
I'll also have a DVD of my journey from rejection to redemption to share with other hurting, broken individuals. I can't wait to boast of God's goodness and grace!
You must know I am terrified of this project, and the thought of speaking into a video camera while others are watching makes my stomach hurt. Going wardrobe shopping with the production assistant (although she is amazing!) nearly made me break out in hives.
May I ask for your prayer support?? PLEASE?! :)
I'll be in Kokomo October 10th & 11th. Would you please pray for a fresh measure of God's power, peace and Presence? Prayers for my health (my family too!) would also be so appreciated (you may remember I often get sick - or get lice - right before big events!)
May the story of what God is doing through the horrible, painful mistakes of my life encourage you and remind you that NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE with God.
Only God could take a shy, insecure girl from Kokomo Indiana ~ and not only rescue and redeem me from years of self destructive choices, but give me a brand new reputation, and then flood my life with His grace, love and joy. Only God!
And only God could provide me with such an amazing group of bloggy friends ~ near and far!
When I was meeting with the film crew and told them about you all, the head of video production said, "Absolutely! Tell them all about this project! We can take lots of pictures in Kokomo so they can join you!" (Thanks, Fred!)
I can't wait to share photo highlights with you, my sweet friends!
Isn't God fun?! :)
Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*, and for your prayers, friendship and support.
God's richest blessings to you~
P.S. In case you now have the "Kokomo" song in your head (by the Beach Boys) ~ you can sing along here.....
P.S.S. I'm linking up today with Jen and friends at Soli Deo Gloria. Be sure to check out this amazing sisterhood of women! :)
