I was honored to do my very first podcast interview last week for the brand new Long Hollow Stories podcast. This weekly podcast gives a behind-the-scenes look at the life within our church, giving others a chance to hear how God is moving within our midst.
When my boss talked about starting a podcast this summer, I thought it was an exciting idea. I thought this would be something I'd totally listen to—stories of God working in and through His people. I never once thought I would be on it. But when he approached me last week with an opportunity to share my story—to share specifically about anxiety and eating disorders—I knew I had to say yes. I felt in my heart that God could use this story as a way to show people more of Him.
I was actually shaking as we sat down to do the interview. I had read over my testimony that morning, and I brought a notecard into the studio with some of my favorite verses on it. Other than that, I didn't do any formal preparation. I prayed. I asked God to give me wisdom and to speak through me. I prayed that His words would be mine. I prayed that He would get the glory through this. And I will keep praying that. To thine be the glory.
I'm still a work in progress. I still struggle, and I still have room for healing. But God is faithful. He reminds me that trials lead to endurance and strengthen our faith. That when I seek Him, He hears me and delivers me from all my fears. That I am His, a new creation, no longer a slave to the old self.
Let me tell you, friends, amazing things can happen when your life is in His hands.

If you want to talk more about Jesus Christ and faith and what-the-heck-is-all-this-stuff, shoot me a message. I love meeting new people, whether virtually or in person, and gabbing about life.

Truly, He makes beautiful things.
