I have been completely immersed in our Glory Academy end of the year production – only two weeks to go! Ahhhh!!!! (I refrained from using my all-caps internet scream…but you get the picture, right?)

This year our theme is “Seasons” – we thought it would be easy – I think we were in denial. Actually, finding the music and the costumes were rather easy – and my staff have been so wonderful and diligent to get things done – that’s not the hard part. The difficulty lies at the heart of the story we are trying to tell. I know that the Lord spoke to me at the beginning of this season to steer us in this particular direction. I don’t hear audible words from the Lord – but I have come to know and trust the still small voice of the Lord when He leads me. So, here we are pulling together a show to illustrate the inevitable seasons of our lives – the new birth of spring, the fun and growth during summer, the harvest times of fall and….yes, the harsh realities of winter – and I’m looking all around me at my staff and the families of GAFA and see us all going through different seasons – struggling to see the hand of God sometimes – struggling to make it through dispite the overwhelming promise of God to each of us. Some of us are struggling in our relationships or finances – others with raising our children or seeking new direction for our lives. Honestly, it has been a difficult season – we’re all going to relate to “winter” in a brand new way…

It’s as if God is really teaching us this lesson before we get before the people and minister this creative word in two weeks – we really need to “get it” – and I am so confident that, just as He did last year, He is going to speak through us – through our feet and our bodies as we worship Him with dance – through our voices as we speak and sing – through the music that we have dedicated for His purpose. I can’t wait to see how something beautiful beyond my comprehension is going to come from such struggle. Let me just say this – you don’t want to miss this event. It’s going to be an incredible journey – so come along for the ride!
