All Quiet on the Set!

I decided to spend my Thanksgiving holiday a bit different this year.  I don’t have any family in California, and everyone else around here that I know was already engaged in their own family celebrations.  So, I made use of the day to record my first teaching to be sold on my website!

I started recording on Thursday and had my schedule re-arranged by God for the better.  Turns out that today was a better day for recording, so I went at it with a good will.  I think it flowed well and am pleased with the results.  I have one more section to do tomorrow, plus a bunch of audio editing.  My hope is that by the end of the weekend I will have CD masters in my hand and the labels loaded on the printers and ready to go!

For the moment, however I am doing a bit of vegging before going at it again tomorrow.  I find that “The Andy Griffith Show” is great for this particular purpose …

Well …

I had good intentions. 

The progress on my website is coming along.  Lately I have been working on the store front, which is going to be hosted by a different provider than the main website.  Not a big deal, just means that I had to do design work there, as well as all the nuts and bolts of setting up a store.  So, I had plans tonight of working on my punch list of details and trivia to get all my little duckies in a row.

But then I discovered that a friend of mine had recently purchased a DVD of a group called Leahy (www.Leahymusic.com) that they let me watch.  Yeah.  So much for the punch list.

This is a family of 8 from Canada who perform together – step dancing, fiddling, playing piano, and more.  I AM HOOKED.  I just get mesmerized.  It is a really amazing thing to watch highly skilled performers, especially when you see so plainly they enjoy it – their spirits are shining in their faces and their souls aren’t exactly pouting either!

It makes me celebrate my God all over again to see the amazing complexity of His creation in the form of humanity.

Ok, back to work … really …

One step closer

Last night I got hooked on writing some text for the home page of the website.  In fact, I got a little TOO hooked.  Several paragraphs later I realized I had gotten just a tad carried away with my passion about getting to that place God has created our spirits to yearn for.  Home page, Megan.  Just enough to share what you are about and connect with people.  Save the preaching for an article or two.

Also wanted to share a really fun glory story.  I am teaching a teleconference for the Mercy gift right now (which will soon become an album!) and I usually ask for glory stories at the beginning of the class.  On Tuesday I did that, as usual, and someone spoke up about some signficant new perspective they had gained.  Someone else spoke up and shared how God had met her that weekend in a HUGE way and her spirit was completely transformed as a result.  Another person spoke up to cheer her on and then share her story!  We all ended up laughing and giggling and just bubbling over the with the joy of Father’s intervention in our lives.  I was half tempted to cancel the class all together and just party all night!  🙂  Fun stuff!

And I so appreciate the culture of sharing glory stories and celebrating the things God is doing.  This is another habit I picked up from Arthur and Plumbline.  In the inner healing and deliverance process we get so tied up with looking at all the uglies.  That can get quite depressing, and even crowd out your perspective of the bigness of God and His active intervention in your life.  Keep looking for Divine Fingerprints!  It’s a wonderful habit to form.

Instrument in the Hands of God

I have greatly enjoyed watching people post their celebration stories of how God has used Arthur and Plumbline to bring transformation into their lives.  In that spirit, I have started this new category of the blog for that very purpose.  So, you can post your own story or comment on someone else’s if you wish.

Thank you again for your investment in the Kingdom in this way and for joining me in celebrating the fruit you have seen in your lives.

New Beginnings

I set up a pretty bodacious schedule for myself.  Too bodacious, in fact.  I am already behind.  I am in the process of setting up a new website and preparing to record an album to sell on it.  And boy, there sure is a lot that goes into that process!

My new business is called Beyond the Horizon and the website is www.GoBeyondTheHorizon.com.  I am really excited about this new beginning and how God will use it to further His Kingdom. 

As I have spent days and hours working on this new business and website, I am drawn to look at how I got to the place where I am.  It wasn’t easy, clean, or simple.  It has been fun at times, and certainly exhilerating, entertaining, and painful.  But life brings you it’s greatest treasures when they come in all kinds of colors. 

So, I have been flipping through the pages of the years and celebrating God’s goodness in the people He has sent my way.  One of those people who has played a huge role in recent years is Arthur Burk.  He is founder of a business called Plumbline Ministries, and God has used him in a prfound way to poise me at the cusp of this new beginning.  His teachings have shown me facets of God’s nature I had never seen, and fanned the flame of my own allegience and commitment to the great King, Jesus Christ.  I would not know half the things I know about myself, nor would I be in any shape to act on that knowledge, if it weren’t for Arthur Burk giving of himself so freely to God’s desires.  

It is an honor to give back to the body of Christ and the world for how many dear friends, family, and brothers and sister in Christ who have given to me.

And now back to the schedule …
