Over the past six years, I’ve come to not only appreciate but embrace my singleness. I’d like to think that mostly has to do with the availability and flexibility to serve God, but if I’m really honest, there is another major “benefit”: I get to do what I want when I want where I want and how I want…and don’t have to answer to any earthly person for it. I also get to be left to myself to choose whether or not to be introspective, to be self-critical, to grow as a human on planet earth.
I’m not proud to admit this, but about twice a year I clean my office at work. By “clean” I mean remove dust bunnies and give the keyboard a good once over. Apparently once every 5 years or so I do a thorough purge. That’s what happened this week. It did feel great. I also found something that made me smile.
Several months into my move to Albuquerque and start at the ministry Faith Comes By Hearing, I was invited to be on a radio program to share my story. A story of relentless pursuit and redemption with a sequel including a desperate prayer, more than a few missteps and the patience of a loving God. Ultimately, a story of the power of Good News – and how that always always makes the headline.
Below is the audio recording from that radio program – the story of how I came into a personal relationship with a loving and patient God and how He brought me to be part of sharing His message of hope with the world. I pray it is a blessing to someone, somehow, somewhere…
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes… Romans 1:16
