God Speaks to Help You Avoid Disaster
I worked for many years at Focus on the Family, a large radio ministry in Colorado Springs. I was the producer for a national live call in talk show for women. We had a high profile host, and the pressure was high because we were a live national radio program. If we had a technical problem, hundreds of thousands of people heard us. So I tried to always be on my toes when it came to preparing for the show.
One day I was praying for an upcoming broadcast and the Lord spoke to me. Our host was not in studio with us, she was in Washington D.C.and connected to us through something called an ISDN line. The Lord told me that the ISDN line was going to drop at the end of the show and that we wouldn’t have time to reconnect with our host. The show would be over without an ending. That would be bad for national broadcasting,and bad for my job.
I trusted what He said to me and I contacted our host. I told her that she was going to think it strange, but that I needed her to record a one minute ending to the show that we could use as a backup in case we ever lost her connection near the end of the show.
She did think I was a little crazy, but she agreed to record it for me. The next day when we were live, I had her recorded ending cued up and ready to go. Amazingly like clockwork, that ISDN line dropped our host during the last commercial and we had no time to reconnect with her and end the show correctly. I brought in some music, hit “play” on the prerecorded ending, and nobody knew we had lost our host.
The Lord was so faithful and He cared about helping us avoid disaster.
My Shepherd gently guided me through what would have been a stressful and failure-filled day, into peace, confidence and success! High five Jesus!
