Just over 20 years ago, the summer of 1988, I spent at Grandpa and Grandma’s house. I painted that red barn back then (laughing). Actually at one point while sitting on the roof, I held grandpa’s legs while he painted below an eave (We did it while grandma wasn’t looking).
But up on the rim rock behind the barn, I will never forget the experience of the Holy Spirit inflaming my heart passions for preaching the Word of God. It was a spiritual, subjective experience that echoes now mightily in my heart.
One day, I crossed the bridge over the creek. I walked through those fields behind the barn. I hiked up to the top of the ridge. I sat down with my Bible. And God made it absolutely clear to me that He wanted me to preach the Word.
I was scared back then.
Glory to God!
Looking at the picture puts goosebumps on my arms this evening.
