Prime Time America

If this is your first visit to this blog, please look around and read one of the older posts. I recommend “Redemption Can Be Found in Every Pile of Garbage” or “Mean Old Lao Deng” which is really good for the Christmas season. For those who are regular readers, I wanted to let you know that I’ll be on Prime Time America today. It’s a radio broadcast out of Chicago. I’ve been interviewed by Tracy Haney. I thought the interview was to focus on Mike’s and my new book with IVP, but Tracy’s first words to me were, “I don’t want to talk about the book!” So, we went another route. This means I have no idea what the interview is going to sound like edited on the air. It airs today from 4-6 PM Central time. You can access it through their website: www.primetimeamerica.org. In Kansas City we don’t have any stations that carry that program, so I have to access through the web as well. If it’s frightening, and chances are it will be, just turn it off and don’t listen to the rest of the train wreck. I’ve been taking a lot of Nyquil lately, but I can’t really use that as an excuse. I’d prepared to discuss the book and its contents and Mike’s and my motives for writing it and when Tracy made his statement, well, my mind froze and I have no idea what we talked about. 🙂 Seriously. Shock.

Daryl got home from Australia just fine. Actually got bumped up to business class and enjoyed the 13 hour flight back to the USA. Glad to have him home. I plan on posting a new blog tomorrow. I have a story I want to share that’s so heart-warming and encouraging about a friend of mine. Talk to you tomorrow. Peace.

Terri, this is not related to your radio spot, I wasn’t sure where to post. I want to say Thank-YOU for your openess and heart. My mother-in-law sent your heart of stone blog to my husband, who has been struggling desperately, more than anyone knows. Let me first give you a background, my husband accepted Christ at 5 years of age. Then the teenage years of peer pressure hit and alcohol ensared him and became a stronghold. The same happened with women, however this was a very deep dark secret only revealed to me over last summer. After reading your posts, I’m sure you’re familiar with the self-loathing, and hatred that penetrates and hardens the heart. After 13 years of marriage, both knowing the Gift given to us from God, and what is right and wrong, we probably hit the lowest point in our marriage. For me, this low point was the best thing that happened to me, and all the while I thought my husband was the only one in need of a true awakening. For my husband, your blogs spoke so deeply to his heart that he wrote a song, and he is not the kind of man who just writes songs!! God spoke these words to his heart, and the healing process has begun. For myself, God opened my eyes to the fact that no matter what, I am to live my life as He has called me to. That my behavior, actions, attitues are not to be conditional on how I feel or how I’m treated. However, to make the concious effort every minute sometimes to just be quiet, to take things to Him who cares the most about me, and to make sure that my actions, attitudes, and words are those that reflect the love and grace that Christ has shown me. Ephesians 4:29 is my personal challenge, and really should be a personal goal of every one who bears the name of Christ. If you really meditate on that scripture, WOW!! Thinking before we speak, running our words through this filter has been eye opening, atleast for me. I would like to thank you for what you do, just as your work in China later reached many for Christ, I wanted you to know that your blog reaches many, many that you don’t even know!! My husband is a very smart, logical man, and the enemy had enslaved his heart with strongholds. It was only through prayer, not talking, that God brought things into both of our lives to open our eyes again. Now, my husband is back to researching the scriptures, and let me tell you, the enemy stole his heart b/c he who decieves also knows how powerful we can be when our minds are right. We are having a Bible study in our home with my in-laws, and as a side note, my mother-in-law has been a great influence on my life, a ture woman of God, and without her example and prayers we would not have known where to turn!! I’m rambling now, sorry! I just wanted you to know that you were able to reach a very deep and dark place where no one else was able, and I want to thank you. I know you don’t know me or my full situation, and I don’t believe you have to to pray. So, I will ask, will you pray that my heart and that of my husbands stay soft toward God and the things of God, and that our eyes stay opened to Him and His will, as well as the ability to see where the struggles are coming from!!
Thanks again!!
