In God's Spotlight

In an earlier post, I mentioned a desire that God has placed in my heart, acting. Of course, I used it to accomplish the all about 'ME' syndrome. I wanted to become a famous Broadway actress and live in the Trump Towers.

But God had other plans with my love,to be in the spotlight. After turning my life over to Him, I gave up the dream and submitted my desires to His will. Since then I have been in the church plays, some with leading roles and about 4 years ago was asked to portray, Sarah, for a women's bible study at our church. From that point on I knew God had brought me back on stage not for my glory but for His Glory! I now have the privilege to share in character, women of the bible with others.

So, the reason I have shared all of this with you, my dear friends, is some of my blogging friends wanted me to display my talent through pictures and video. Well, last night I had the opportunity to perform for the local Aglow Ministry and with my girlfriends, Dorothy and Terry’s help you are about to see...the woman at the well.

Sorry, no video, haven't learned that one...yet. The pictures for this blog was with the help of my dear husband and wonderful daughter. I think they got a little frustrated with all the questions. :)

Oh I'm so glad you shared with us! It's always so exciting to see people living out the dream God has for their lives.

You really must learn to do the video. :D

How cool is that Tammy. I bet you shined God's Glory. Can't wait till you learn to add video. Have a great day.

I so relate to your acting desire. That's what I wanted to be. I have a similar story. If I do anything, it's now for HIS glory!

Happy to know you said "yes" to the call. His design for you.

I had similar dreams once, only I wanted to be a singer. I am a singer, a worship leader and that is exactly why God gave me the gift. There is nothing like using your gift for the glory of the Lord!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I look forward to getting to know you!

Thanks for sharing your photos Tammy! I would have loved to have been there. I think I share the same thoughts as everyone else in looking forward to seeing a video some day. You're beautiful by the way!

Hi Tammy,
This is so exciting! Isn't it great when God calls us and then opens the doors His way for us to walk through. To God be the glory!

That's wonderful, Tammy! Isn't it awesome when God allows us to use our passions to glorify Him?

Thanks also for your encouragement on my blog last week. It was much appreciated.
