Janet Roller - Living Oak Ministries

My photo
Hi. I'm Janet Roller: wife of one, mother of two, lover of coffee and writer of songs. I have just finished my first fiction novel and I'm looking forward to watching how God uses the simple story to minister to others. God is a big deal to me. My goal each day is to wake up and declare, "This day is Yours, Lord. Show me what to do with it."

Shout it From the Rooftop!

It is my pleasure to tell you about the miraculous signs and wonders that the Most High God has performed for me. Daniel 4:2

Can I just brag on God for a minute? Wednesday, April 30, Rushing Winds Studio called to inform us that the first 100 copies of our cd, "For Such a Time as This", were ready to be picked up. Yippee! As stated in previous posts, it seemed like a short amount of time that took forever to pass. In September of 2007, God began using the quiet mornings of the now-empty-house to speak to me in lyrics. Matt and I felt that God wanted these songs to be more than just "Roller Ramblings". I kept hearing messages in sermons about "hiding your talents", "to much is given - much is required", "when God speaks to you...listen and then act". So, we began praying about how we could record these songs with ... at the time no money to spare. It really seemed impossible.

Oh, but don't you love it when God shows up in the times when you can figure out a way to make it work. I know He is always working for our good but...man, He really shines in the times when we need Him.

After sending a copy to each of those who financially contributed to this ministry, we were still looking at a good number of copies. One at a time over the last week, they have left us. Friday morning, the phone rang at 7:30am. It was a neighbor who had heard about the cd and she wanted one to play in her salon. A parent at my children's school bought one. Then, a sweet friend called, expressed how it had blessed her and requested 25 copies for gifts and to sell in her families business. 25! Then another friend called and requested 10 copies for her family. Then another wonderful man called and requested 4! Are you keeping up? That's 41!!! Yesterday!!!

God is so good!

Matt e-mailed Rushing Winds and requested the next 100. Through God's grace, we will spread his Word and Grace through these, too. I love Him. And He loves me...and you! Aren't you glad! That alone is enough to shout from the roof-tops!
