I’m so happy that I finally made the first step of taking lessons to improve my voice.
It’s a big accomplishment for me. I believe this is the start of greater things to come.
So here’s my scorecard:
Thank You Jesus. You gave me the courage to step out and pursue what I love.
I always had doubts about serving in worship in the kids ministry. So many times, I had wanted to throw in the towel, call it quits and just get on with life.
Perhaps, walking with the Lord gave me a clearer picture on what He wanted me to do with my life. Sure, we all have choices, and their resulting consequences. But I’ve made enough mistakes in life and I don’t want to risk another, and I just want to hear what He thinks I should do, before I set my heart on something.
When I reached the building where the vocal studio was located- it was tucked away in a dingy corner of an old mall built in the 80s, opposite a tattoo parlor – I just felt a comfortable sense of shalom and coherent wholeness, that I was on the right track of pursuing my passion.
It is never about the environment/ambiance. It’s about His presence, that lightness, that tangible heaven-on-earth glory, invisible but ever so real.
Which brings me to the topic of work. As in our 9-5 job. Unpalatable as reality is, we have to acknowledge that people today are becoming base, lowly, political and plain nasty. But, do I have to succumb to the temperature of the environment? Hasn’t Jeremiah mentioned, that for the righteous man, his leaf will always be green even in the heat of day? Here, we are applying Biblical truths in real life, or rather, bringing our life to the level of glory that the Lord has called us to.
You know what, I’ve decided. I will set the temperature, I will determine the environment. The choice is in my hands. I will bring the glory of heaven on earth. Even if I am the only one, so be it. I will stand alone, with the Lord on my side.
The Lord who went down to the Valley of Elah with David, is the One who is watching over me as I type this.
The Year of Jubilee. Let it flow, abundantly, visibly, from the spirit, to every area of my life. To God be the Glory. Amen.
