The news this morning in our Tampa Tribune newspaper (yes! WE still read a good old fashioned newspaper daily!!!) was awesome, terrific, inspiring and more for a Monday!
Tim Tebow, the wonderfully talented and very motivational and very Christianity-on-my-sleeve and face, will return to Florida next year ….. boldly blazing a path that very few young adults dare to even dream about!
I have been asked many times during my public performances to not sing our Boca Beth bilingual Christian songs in order not to offend anyone. I have been asked during many keynote events not to bring God into the picture as I paint my very unique and engaging story!
As I watch and admire Tim Tebow, I wonder at myself, “Why do you agree NOT to share the word of the Lord when it is that very word that has brought you to where you are today?” Shame on me! A grown woman has not the courage to do what a bold college aged young man does daily - and that is to thank Jesus for being our Lord and Savior.
Do you feel this is something I should continue to walk on eggshells about? Would you agree NOT to share your faith during a speech with fellow educators – many of whom are believers, and many of whom would benefit from hearing just a little bit of good ol’ “Thank you Jesus!”?
I would love to know YOUR thoughts on this – thank you/gracias.
And Tim, thank you for inspiring someone at least twice your age to minister more to those she reaches daily also!
