So it’s official.
After a month or so given to much prayer, soul searching, and consideration for my condition in 2009, I willingly accepted the position of SJBCI’s Music Director. The process was almost gut wrenching because of some internal issues I had previously discussed with Perze, but it came down to a need and calling, and what I taught the high school/college last Saturday about God Sanctioned Talent discussed in Exodus reverberated to me, spoke to me, and reminded me about my insecurities and God’s awesome plans for me and power to sustain me.
Without going into detail, there’s an arduous road ahead, with a lot of pressure, responsibilities, & goals- one that I never want to tread or lead in mediocrity or indifference, but an opportunity to walk and work closely to the Ultimate Planner who has a vision. I have so many goals I want to accomplish. I just ask my friends for prayer, esp. since I have a young family, a marriage of almost 5 years :), a 3 year old preschooler, and one on the way. There’s much to juggle, with a husband who is a dedicated partner in the ministry, so we’re stretched, but through experience, in our conversation, we’ve really been so blessed, despite seeming difficulty. And we’re sincerely thankful and have so much joy in what we do.
So I leave this blog and future endeavor with lyrics to a song I’ve recently learned, and lyrics which I shared from Sat.’s Bible Study:
Not Mine Anyway (BY JJ AND DAVID HELLER)
I don’t know what to say
No words could ever be enough
I stand up because you hold me here
Because you brought me here tonight
Without you we all fall down
Without you we all fall
You make life worth living
You make me want to start giving
More and more away to you
It’s not mine anyway
