As I read the Bible in my devotions, I always found it easy to look at the more challenging passages as if they were for someone else. That was until I started personalizing the Word of God for myself. By including my name in the scriptures and reading passages as if God were speaking to me personally; it became much easier to get convicted and take action on the what I’d read.
I was so touched with how powerful the Word was to me when I personalized it that I soon recorded it for myself to listen to over and over. With the constant drumbeat of negative proclamations coming from the news media and Madison Ave, listening to a personalized Word was an excellent way to meditate on the truth of God to me in every situation. The recordings allowed me to meditate consciously or unconsciously, when played softly in the background, on the life changing power of the Word of God. Truths, that were only head knowledge once, started springing to life in my spirit!
In spite of how much it blessed me, it never occurred to me to provide personalized readings for others, even though I am a voice over professional. It wasn’t until a Sunday church service this past January that the Lord gave me a vision of this ministry. Literally, the Lord was telling me to use your voice talent to blessed others by “calling the names of His children” into His word. The scripture that resounded at the time of this vision was “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” Rom 10:17.
It is my prayer that you will be blessed and your faith will come alive as you listen to these recordings.
