If you sit in a church pew long enough, you hear at least one story of how someone was ‘called’ to do something, and how God opened door after door until their mission was complete. Well, I am not one to take, what I thought of at the time to be, ‘subtle hints’. But in 2015, I had such a prodding of the spirit to record a CD. I didn’t know why, but I followed what the Lord had laid on my heart.
Throughout the next year and a half, I wrote and re-wrote, recorded and re-recorded, mixed and remixed, asked friend’s and family for their opinions on the songs, and started looking into how to make this CD a reality. I told you that I am not one to take a subtle hint, so when I prayed that if this is what God wanted me to do, He would not only have to open the doors, but shove me through them! And, wouldn’t you know, He did just that.
The journey has not been without my doubts…. a lot of them, but I was shown that these were because of my lack of understanding of what God had laid out for me to do for Him. A lot of prayers have gone up, not just by me, but by everyone around me, and they are being answered in His timing. My journey is not nearly over yet, I’ve only just begun, and I can’t wait to see what lies ahead. I’m excited (and scared to death) to see what God has in store for this music ministry.
I invite you to come on this journey with me. If it brings you closer to your Savior, or just makes your day seem a little bit brighter, my prayer is that everyone who hears this music gets something from it.
