My push from God

Tonight, during Timothy Team, I was trying to tell the kids about a new prayer - TACOS - that I read about on DevoZine's Facebook page.

I wasn't sure I remembered what TACOS stood for so I grabbed my phone and pulled up the DevoZine Facebook page to double check the exact meaning.

- For the record TACOS stands for Thanksgiving, Adoration, Confession, Others and Supplication - kind of like the ACTS prayer we've used in Timothy Team, (Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving and Supplication), but with one additional layer.

Imagine my surprise when the first post on the Facebook page wasn't the TACOS description from earlier in the day, but instead a tweet WITH MY NAME!

It's a brief summery - in 140 characters - of the weekday devo I wrote for the January/February 2011 issue - Need a Push.

Wow. I was almost speechless as I read it. I almost couldn't explain the TACOS prayer to the kids. (We'll dig into it a bit more next week)

It was so cool to see my stuff tweeted like that. It was almost a "push" from God saying -see you are a writer. Your words, written for me, are making a difference.

I've written several devos for DevoZine during the past 15 years, but it's only been in the last year, that I've re-discovered how much I LOVE writing for them.

 This week, I received my third "hard copy" issue of the latest devo to be in print - Spiritual GPS - in the March/April 2011 issue, along with the confirmation of the publication of a devo in the July/August 2011 issue.

I'm not sure what God has planned for me - I wish I had a crystal ball to see the future - but I know one thing. I truly believe that writing for DevoZine is definitely in God's plan for my life.

I'm grateful and humbled by the opportunity I've been given by my friends on the DevoZine staff to write for this amazing publication. The fact that they trust me to write for youth is well, in a word, humbling.
