In 2011 Patti and some "random" woman who prayed for me at church in Las Vegas, NV told me God was calling me to speak. What? I was homeless at the time and didn't believe it. In March 2012 when I did my first live radio interview I was terrified. When I finished I was covered in sweat and so glad I only called in and wasn't seen. By the end of the month I'd completed three radio interviews. Two months later I started the Praying with Power and Purpose podcast. Then, Patti told me God wants people to see your face; you need to do video. I fought it for as long as I could - and although I'm still not a great speaker or on or off screen, the Lord uses me. I'm pretty excited about that. I'm sharing all this to say that you have to obey instructions as they come and God will pour in the power to accomplish His plans and purposes. Be encouraged.
But celebrate this: God selected the world's foolish to bring shame upon those who think they are wise; likewise, He selected the world's weak to bring disgrace upon those who think they are strong. ~ 1 Corinthians 1:27 TVB
