In order of importance, I am a Christian-in-progress, a woman of a certain age, a proud mother of three grown sons, grandmother of the most delightful little Italian girl in the world, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a singer, a writer and an account technician.
I am planning to use this space to indulge myself by writing whatever is on my mind at the time while imagining an enraptured audience of millions hanging on my every word.
I’ve been reading a book, lately, called “The Unexpected Adventure” by Lee Stroebel and Mark Mittelberg. The adventure in the title is the evangelistic life, lived with an eye for the opportunities to speak of one’s faith that God scatters in the daily path. It is an engaging and challenging book.
One point worth sharing and that came as a new insight for me is that it isn’t all up to me. The average person who comes to faith in Christ has been “evangelized” from five to twenty times before making their decision. Isn’t that a liberating concept? All any one person is responsible for is for sharing their own particular story, or even just a bit of it. God will take it from there using others to nurture the seed just planted.
