You’ll never guess what I did yesterday while driving to work. For some reason I listened to the first episode of this podcast. And to be honest…the second also. They were just awful. I mean not the first chapter of Matthew (all those genealogies are fun, aren’t they?). And, although I have become more comfortable behind the mic, even the delivery was tolerable. But, oh my goodness…the quality was just dismal! And for that, God brought me right back around to gratitude. I bet you know why.
My heavenly Father immediately brought to mind my husband, Mitch. I am grateful to him and for him for every part of the production of this podcast. He even said, “You need better equipment. Get a new mic…get a new interface.” He has encouraged me, supported me, even written scripts when I was void of creativity. He is an editor par excellence because Mitch never thinks that good enough is good enough. He pushes, he strives, he goes the extra mile.
When I first started, I contracted out the editing for the first three or four episodes. I was sharing the process with Mitch – along with the frustrating parts of trying to communicate to someone in Sri Lanka – and he said, “I’ll be your editor!” He volunteered without even being asked! But what he said in the days following meant more to me than I can ever say. He told me how he believed in what I was doing. That it was an important ministry and that he wanted to help in any way he could. Team Miller!, he said. I’ve never loved him more and, quite frankly, this team effort has added a dimension to our relationship that I never expected but thank God for every day.
Mitch has a high-pressure job. It would be so easy for him to say, “I’m too busy.” But he doesn’t. He works so hard and I am blessed beyond words that he is my husband and partner in life, ministry, and faith.
I know you’ll see this, Mitch. Heck, you’re gonna edit it. I thank God for you every day and pray a blessing on your head for your faithfulness and friendship. You are truly the best.
And my prayer for my listeners is that you too have been blessed like I have. You can give God praise for your spouse – or any other person who encourages you – at Lifting Her Voice, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. I will join you in praising God for His lavish blessings!
