In July I told my friend no way I would go on the radio about a new ministry and laughed at her and I meant every word! When the radio heard about Hope in Him they said there was nothing like it and they wanted me to come share. This is way, way, way, way out of my comfort zone! I dread it, honestly but I also believe God brought it. I have had some anxiety as I prepare to go speak on the radio. (Monday, 23rd - you don't really think I would let you know ahead of time, do you?!) God does not bring fear and doubt.

As I prepare for Hope in Him, my new ministry, on Saturday, I need to prepare my heart. Psalm 37: 3-4, "Delight yourself also in the Lord.” I cannot do this when I am running around busy whether working, cleaning or playing on the boat. I have to disconnect from the world and give God first place. This past weekend I had to say no to some fun things because I needed time with God. I needed down time to sit in His Presence. I want Him, and am expecting Him, to do His part so I have to do mine.

If I seek God's face first then the other things, such as the desires of my heart, will fall into place. Matthew 6: 33, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

These things He brings me will satisfy the desires of my heart! When I am intimate with God, I know that I will receive all that He has promised. Psalm 34: 9-10, "but those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing." Let me hold onto those words, "I shall not lack any good thing!" Thanks be to God!
