I posted recently about being in radio and how to record your voice. Which got me thinking about how I ended up in radio to begin with.
When I was very young…still a teen to be exact, I wanted to get into voice over work. I “auditioned” to be a part of this company…only to get suckered into spending $800.00 for their specialty classes. Snort, snicker. Yup, I was a buffoon.
Fast forward about 7 years and I hear an ad on the radio that the local station is looking for some help. I go in, get an interview and the rest is history.
I have mentioned before how good God is. How He does listen to our hearts desire. I didn’t know it then…but God gave me the opportunity I had always wanted. He got me into radio. I don’t think I used that time wisely. It wasn’t coincidence…He gave me this talent and Loves me. Oh…I wish I could have seen what I see now! And he wanted me to do something with it…and I failed him. I had ample opportunity to be the one to effect change…to be a voice bringing hope and faith, and I chose to be rebellious and unrepentant. Sigh.
I learned many things about radio, but I did not use my platform well. I know that now. I am so blessed that God is giving me another chance. Thank You Father God for believing in me even when I didn’t know You. You are so good.
So…what I am saying is this: If you have a dream in your heart…a God Sized Dream…or maybe A GOD SIZED DREAM…if you are afraid to even voice this dream…God knows your heart. He knows you. You are not foreign to Him and He will not forget you. It may take 7 years or 10 or 40 or even 80 (think about how long Abraham and Sarah had to wait for Isaac)…He will fulfill the desires of your heart.
Psalm 20:4 NIV (This one needs to be highlighted in my Bible.)
“May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.”
Psalm 37:4 NIV (this one is actually highlighted in my Bible.)
“Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.”
I just watched www.LifeWay.com and Phil Robertson from Duck Commander. He spoke on his decision to follow Jesus, how it all started and what he wants for the legacy of Duck Dynasty. It’s worth the watch…and I want Phil to Preach it! Preach the word, brother!
As Phil Robertson of Duck Commander said, “We’re all counting time by Jesus.” Amen, brother. Amen.
