Taking the Leap with Rachel G. Scott

Meisha Watson

Episode Summary

Moving Forward And Fulfilling Your Calling In Christ with Meisha Watson Everyone has a calling. Maybe you've already found yours, or maybe it's waiting for you to discover it. Going after your calling and doing something outside of your comfort zone requires God's leading. The truth is that we don’t need to chase after what God has established for you, we just have to be ready. Sometimes we spend so much time getting ready, that we get distracted from our calling, while what we ought to be doing is what has been in front of us all along. Your calling is not a mystery and will not come packaged as a surprise. It is something you have and can start working on now, whether you realize it or not. So often, we go after shiny objects when we ought to start with what is in our hands and put it out there. Get to know your calling, start doing it with what you have in your hands right now, and God will teach you which direction to take along the way. In this episode, your host Rachel G. chats with Meisha Watson, a rising star at YES TV, where she brings her unique talents to Saturday mornings with a brand-new variety program for kids called Hey Meisha! Her mission is to ensure that every child who watches her Christian kids’ programming will learn that they too can have a personal relationship with Jesus. In the conversation, Meisha shares how pitching on a secular network led to her new show, Hey Meisha, and how moving to a completely new country at the age of 14 set her up for some major leaps that she had to take later in life. She also shares the content creation process and how getting started by using what was in her hands at the moment led to her signing with a major TV network. If you are hesitant to move forward with the leap God is showing, then this episode is for you. Tune in!
