Donny's Ramblings

So I Made the CBS Evening News…

12 Comments

Craig Gross from XXXChurch emailed me and let me know about it. He reposted the video on the XXXChurch site. Click here to see it.

I have to tell you something about all of this news media stuff, though. First of all, I’ll admit that I like it. It’s a lot of fun to see yourself on the news. Now I’ll do the cliché thing and say it’s not about me and it’s all about God and blah blah blah. The thing is, I really mean it. I am so honored to be used by God after what I’ve done with my life. I tell him that all the time. I love him very much.

I screw up all the time, yet he still uses me. I’ve got so much work left to do, yet he still says, “I’m going to use your story to reach into the lives of others”. I am absolutely sure some of the choices I make really disappoint him. I’m such a stubborn fool.

Yet he chooses to use me.

He lets me stand up in front of hundreds (sometimes thousands) of people and talk about… me. And Him.

It’s overwhelming. And humbling. And an awful lot of fun.

God, thank you. Please don’t give up on me. I really want to do my best, even if my attitudes don’t always show it.

  3. Yeah, welcome to the biggest struggle for a believer in the media. It’s something I struggle with constantly…you’ve got talent to be able to do what you do, but it can all too easily become all about ego and pride. Then, sometimes, you feel like you’re the worst person on the face of the earth and how can God ever use you in that area. All you can do is leave it in God’s hands.

  5. Oh how I know the feeling Donny. After seeing just a tease of myself during the Fort Wayne event I was so excited to see myself on the news and also how God has put me here. Good piece and it’s amazing seeing how God has blessed you and is using to bring people to the light of this issue. Brian

  7. Donny… excellent interview. Very poised. Very articulate. Nice job. If they zoomed in any closer we could have counted your nose hairs.

  11. Praise the Lord, Donny, that He has chosen to use you. Sometimes the best vessels are not the most perfect, but the most available and humble ones.
