Oh my! This brought real tears to my eyes and I am still tearing. I will watch this video again and again and whenever I am tempted to be discouraged by the derision of the crowds.
Chuck Goetschel posted a link on Facebook this morning and, at first, I almost passed it over. We were taken to the Britain's Got Talent contest to meet a sweet and delightful lady named Susan Boyle. I was blown away!
We are more than we can even imagine. This dear woman's confidence in the person God had given her to be just blessed me down to my socks - as did her inspiring performance. Susan Boyle is my latest hero!
Not only is she singing the song; she is living it!
I Samuel 16:7: "But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart."
The derisive laughter of the crowds will turn to amazement, wonder, and joy if you will not be deterred by their discouraging words and looks. Keep moving forward in resurrection hope!

Contest judge, Amanda Holden called this a wake up call and said, "You said you wanted to be like Elaine Paige and everyone laughed at you. You have proved them wrong."
May it be a wake up call to all of us.
