In the tool of reminding myself of HIS greatness, I am in awe of looking back at all HE allowed me to write. It is amazing how I can clearly see the unfolding journey of how I used to think. You can see the unveiling and the falling off of religious ideas to a relationship with THIS ALMIGHTY GOD. As I look back on my writings I see the blinders fall off and getting to see this falling more and more in love with WHO HE IS. It's a constant renewal, as we allow HIM, knowing that we will never arrive.
Actually to quote the famous evangelist, Reinhardt Bonke, "The more I learn about GOD, the more I realize I know nothing at all."
It is amazing to look in hind sight on how The Word of GOD continually transforms us by the renewal of my mind causing an awakening as revealed in Romans 12:1-2. This awakening has made me realize even more it's not about changing my behavior that will please GOD; instead it's about being intimate with HIM and by default my behavior automatically changes.
More than anything I have been learning that it's not based on "my doing" or paying penance to make up for all my wrongs; instead it's GOD'S marvelous grace that woos me to fall more in love with HIM. In this collision of intimacy and awe is where it is seen that I don't want to do the same things I used to. In that, HIS grace is revealed that empowers me to rise above selfish desires; because of WHO HE IS, not because of how disciplined I am. On the contrary, it is intimacy with HIM in which self control kicks in by default as it is produced by Holy Spirit through me.
With all of that said, I want to introduce you to where I am now. You can now visit me online at www.LetsTalkStudio.com
For some, you may remember back in 2010, I was introduced with an idea to have a talk show of some sort. Well in September 2016 after prayer and faith, I simply became more aware of GOD's grace and just did it with HIS encouragement! His encouragement was made manifest through some amazing women such as: Carrissa, Amanda, Christina and Terri! With their cheers, I started a YouTube channel, Let's Talk with Teresa Ann which has now led to last months launch of my new podcast.
It's hilarious to see how LET'S TALK with Teresa Ann has continually transformed as it is fun and hilarious to watch! It's definitely a glimpse; a parallel of our lives that are being transformed by Christ! It's amazing to realize that in Christ we are new creations and completely transformed, and yet we get to see the process to what is already accomplished in Christ Jesus.
To realize that when I started the show, I started with what I had, and that was a step ladder and a desk lamp as my lighting and tripod. Since then to see how it has unfolded since the beginning is amazing to watch! Believing in GOD and HIS grace to be consistent has been fun. With the help of my branding ambassador Celina, HE has shown me the power of excellence. It's not excellence in what we think as some people's level of excellence is based on what they have in front of them. My excellence was giving everything I had to GOD, no matter how small it seemed. It was truly about giving my best and HIM showing me how HE does the rest. I love how HE showed me that if I waited until "I have all my ducks in a row" then this post wouldn't be written. GOD showed me the trap of comparison and to just give HIM what I had to give and as I give my best HE truly does the rest!
You may be asking, "What's the purpose of Let's Talk with Teresa Ann"? So here is the mission, it is about "flipping the script" in our lives by HIS transforming power in allowing GOD'S WORD to renew our minds. In other words, getting heavenly perspective to replace our own. The show itself is about bold inspiration, revealing GOD's goodness through my interviews/conversations with different women revealing their extraordinary GOD stories, testifying of HIS faithfulness. I have two shows a week. Every Saturday and Monday I post an interview or I share a nugget of something Holy Spirit has shared with me and it's either made into an episode or highlighted on my Motivational Monday.
I want to and must thank each of you for being such an incredible encouragement by being on this journey with me. I continually enjoy your feedback, so please feel free to do so as my husband, daughter, mom and dad, Patricia Sawyer, Poppa C.O., J.J. McKearnen and Celina Baginski have been great encouragers through this process. You have been a blessing to me and I also want to thank you for taking the time to read all the way to this point. Triumphant Victorious Reminders as a blog will remain and I will now be posting these reminders on Let's Talk.
