CelesteUsually when I wheel from my office to the studio to record Joni and Friends radio programs, I pass by Celeste, one of our faithful volunteers. A couple of recording sessions ago, I invited her in to the control room to listen in, as well as pray for me and the radio team. Wow, were her prayers a big source of encouragement! Last month, right before I started recording she said, “Joni, I am praying Deuteronomy 33:25 over you: “As your days, so shall your strength be.” That was exactly what my lungs, body, and voice needed – heaven-sent strength. And as God has faithfully enabled me to record radio for the past 34 years, He was faithful, yet again, to answer Celeste’s and your prayers. My pain level was very low that day and even though I struggled for breath a few times, I finished all the transcripts. Hey, tomorrow is another recording day and I invite you to join me and Celeste and the team in asking the Lord to visit us, strengthen us, and anoint the next batch of radio programs I'll be recording… I really need it!
