I’ve never been very comfortable out in public. Small talk terrifies me, and I usually can’t get beyond, “So, what are you up to?” before I run out of things to say. This is probably why acting appealed to me when I was younger. The spotlights would go on, the curtain would open, and for a few blessed hours I could be somebody else. Someone who, hopefully, was much more socially competent than me.
When I was called by Christ a spotlight more powerful than any I encountered on stage illuminated my entire being. I discovered many things about myself I didn’t like, and many more I that I found I needed to embrace. When the “curtain” went up on my discipleship journey I began a journey of transformation.
The longer the light stays on me, the more I am transformed into someone new.
May the curtain always stay up, and the light of Christ on my soul.
