Something i've read before many times was in my journal reading tonight and God in his glory really spoke to me and helped me understand more than just the story.

"And the seeds that fell on the good soil represent honest, good-hearted people who hear God's word, cling to it and patiently produce a huge harvest." [Luke 8:15]

To hear God's word: Am I listening and ready to hear God speak to me through his word, through his people or am I too busy doing things?

To cling to it: When i hear it - do i remember? when i read it - am i taking it in? Is God's word and truth the basis of my life and the document i can refrence with his Spirit?

To patiently Produce: am i helping others to grow? To produce we need to water, nurture, train, prune and love. Am i using God's strength to do so? It's not a quick growth but a slow process. Am i helping the harvest?

Lord, use me as a good soil! I want you to grow in me.

Well Show one is over. My Goodness, i'm exaushted. I think the continuall rehursals over the last 2 and a half mths and the insane build up to the first show has finally hit me. Even when i left i thought i was ok, but it's just hit me.

What also has hit me was the amazing amount of support that i have in my family and my frineds. Everyone else has about... 20 people max coming to see them, and alot of thoes haven't booked yet. I have 14 plus 18 plus 24 people coming to see me and they are the people who have booked.

God has really blessed my life with people who are here to help me and support me. Even though i so often seem to suffer from too many friends syndrome and have to say no and feel bad about not being able to be there for everyone (including being in 4 places at once) my friends amazingly still want to stand by me.

So thank you to everyone who came, is coming and is continuing to support me in this show and almost everything else i attempt to do. Special mention to Steve who somehow ends up being last on my list of people to see, but manages to love me none the less. Thank you.
