I felt so honored being offered the role of Christiana. But after looking deeper at the script, the music and this wondrous woman’s life, I felt scared. Scared that the challenging songs, and scared that I could not portray this great of a woman well. Nevertheless, I have peace in the heart. I will pray for God to give me enough wisdom, energy and sensitivity to play this role. I also shall pray that I may not be tied up by want for playing her perfectly. As the Bible and the Bible class has reminded me, I should remember the importance and the meaning of rest. I should have trust and faith in not only myself, but my team and my God. Though it may be even greater a challenge, I should and will try.
