We received confirmation of our trip to England on Tuesday.
This morning we’re about ready to leave for the airport. We’ll fly out tonight.
While in England we’ll complete a live TV interview on an ITV morning programme called “This Morning”, we’ll meet with a documentary maker who is already scheduled to visit us at home in August, and we’ll hold a seminar in London.
This morning I feel gratitude and excitement. I can see how, over
the past 5 years the past 35 years, God has been, constantly and gently, presenting me with new situations, people and opportunities. The next thing, and then the next thing, each ‘next thing’ a stepping stone in my growth.
In every situation, in every moment, all I’ve had to do, is to take the next step. That is, to embrace what my soul attracts and feels drawn to, as the next opportunity to learn and grow.
Sometimes Most times its required courage. But always when I’ve embraced the step forward, wonderful changes have happened in my soul.
When I’ve fought the step, tried to back-pedal, or argue with God that I’m not ready, and/ or generally complained and dug my heels in – in those cases the step hasn’t been made and life hasn’t always been so pretty or rewarding. (laugh – that’s probably putting it mildly)
So this trip to England feels like just another next step. I have a great deal of faith that if I embrace it all, with humility and a desire to grow in love, then I will create new potentials for growth and God in my soul.
I can’t guarantee what will happen on the outside! I mean, I have no idea how the interview will go, if I’ll be able to string half a sentence together, or if everyone (or anyone) will understand our message. But I do have faith that God wants me to know Him and His Truth more, and to do that, I only have to long for it, and to be myself truthfully and humbly in every moment.
So there it is, the challenge in this next step is to be myself more publicly and honestly than I ever imagined.
My dream, the one that has led my soul to this moment, is that everyone on Earth has the opportunity to know the wonderful Truth about, and the absolute Love of, God.
Being on TV might lead a few people to look at our youtube site and investigate things, but growing my soul, taking the next step? Well that’s the most powerful thing I can do to bring God’s Truth to Earth in a tangible way.
So this trip does feel like a special gift.
