Sweet friend —
Thank you so much for your prayers and encouragement as I prepared for my road trip for The Harvest “live” TV Show. (Recap here.) Y’all are the best!
My time to Indiana for the taping was such a blast! I enjoyed having my “assistant,” a.k.a. my 12 year old son Benj. (I try to rotate taking a family member with me when I travel. I love involving my kids with our ministry as much as I can.) We had so much fun together!
I was also blessed to have another praying friend join me for the adventure. My sweet friend Paulette (we met at She Speaks last year, she lives in Indianapolis) drove up and met us too. Paulette was a blessing to have pray over me in the AM, and accompany me to the taping and stay by my side every minute when I wasn’t on the air. What a gift!
You can see our journey, including Paulette’s behind-the-scenes photos from the taping here.
So how did the live on-air interview go?
God is so faithful, friends!
He infused me with peace, a clear mind, and an ability to communicate clearly. Whew! Thank You, God!
I love sharing about what Jesus has done in my life, and y’all know I’m passionate about Red Hot Faith — so thankfully I was able to pretty much ignore the cameras and just focus on Valerie and Chuck (the two very kind and gracious hosts). Whew!
One of the best parts?
The producer believed it went so well, he invited me to stay and film a whole extra segment. Wow!
So I finished the live segment, hung out with Paulette in the green room, and then after the live program was finished, rejoined Valerie for another full program. What a huge blessing to share Jesus on not just one program, but two!
Thank You, God! Thank You, praying friends!
Although it is easy for me to watch these interviews and super over analyze and pick myself apart — I’m working on extending the same grace to myself I do to others.
So whereas I’m not perfect (y’all know that already, right?!) — I showed up and didn’t let my fear hold me back — and that’s a huge victory! Woo Hoo!
I’ll include the videos below if you’d like to take a peek. I sure don’t love sharing my TV interviews, after all your support and prayers, it’s the least I can do!
May I ask one more favor? Will you please join me in praying God will use these segments for His purpose and glory? I’ve already received a number of emails from all around the nation sharing how God is using these messages to strengthen and encourage others. May the seeds planted bear much Kingdom fruit!
Also, may this crazy live TV adventure remind you, dear friend, our God is a God of miracles!
He can do anything, at anytime, through anyone. Sometimes He likes to show off by using the least likely — like me.
Do you need a miracle? An infusion of fresh faith? A friend to stick by you and pray you through?
Our God is able, sweet sister. Of this I am sure!
Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*! God’s richest blessings to you!
P.S. Don’t forget the video segments are below —
Oh Cindy…I love the way you share your Red Hot Faith! This segment was wonderful…and very motivating….
We all need to be real, and to let go and let God use us for his work.
I am glad that God led me to your blog.
May our Lord continue to use you…and to bless you!
Love, Linda Hogeland
