In Today's Christian Woman, contemporary Christian singer Susan Ashton tells how God arranged for her to sing about Christ in a setting she never would have dreamed of: Garth Brooks's brother Kelly dates a woman who likes my music. One day, after she played my recordings for Kelly, he called Garth and told him he should take me on the road. So he did! When I got to know Garth better, he admitted he hadn't heard me sing until I stepped on stage in Spain. That night, he was floored--he said he loved my voice and found my song lyrics moving. But I was scared! I was afraid I might be booed off the stage while the audience screamed, "Garth! Garth!" But incredibly, I received a standing ovation. I was overwhelmed with how open the audience was to me talking about what it means to be a Christian. While very few of us will bear witness for Christ on a country music stage, God will put each of us in situations we never would have imagined to shine forth his glory and gospel. Your stage may be the cafeteria at work, or a PTA meeting at school, or a conversation with a solitary stranger on a bus. The God who arranged the situation will also empower you to speak. When it happens, be bold!! Boldness, Fear, Witness Matt. 10; Acts 1:8;8:26-40; 23:11; 1 Cor. 16:9; Phil. 1:20; 1 Peter 3:15-16 Enjoy!!
