I don’t know about you, but January isn’t the most, er, lucrative month of the year for our family. The downward spiral starts somewhere in the summer with vacations and back to school, takes a dive during our fall birthday season and crashes during the holidays. We brace for bonus and tax season in the spring to save us. Sound a little familiar to anyone?
Yeah, so having a massive car repair bill and then wanting to start a podcast the first two weeks of January isn’t what we would call ideal.
Did you know there are podcasting setups with mics, mixers and such that are thousands of dollars? The top of the line microphone costs $330 alone. Training videos and communities are another couple grand. And that’s nothing to say of editing software, media hosting plans, or graphic design. It all sounds so simple in your head, doesn’t it? Push record, talk, and voila! Podcast!
You can get by, though, with a simple setup at first. I told Scott on Monday I just needed $100 to start.
Well, wouldn’t you know by the next day at noon he was handing me a check from some side work he had done. And guess how much the check was? You guessed it. Exactly $100.
He said, “Here, go buy your mic.”
God is so good isn’t He? I know He’s directed me to this podcast–about faith, no less–and already I see Him at work to provide. Yeah, the provision looks a lot like hard work, but the opportunity presented itself and we were able to take it.
What do you need to believe God for today?
I still need a name for this podcast! I have a long list of ideas, but nothing feels just right yet. I’m going to be married to this name and tag line for, well, life really. Will you pray with me that God shows me just what it would be?
