When I perform for weddings or events, I always get nervous. Always. But there is such a peace that comes over me when leading others to worship God that drowns out all the fears of what people think of me. I don't get nervous - I get excited, passionate and filled with a desire for others to truly sing out and praise God for what He has done for us!
Besides being a wife and mom, there is no other place where I feel absolutely fulfilled.
I am so thankful I had the opportunity to help lead our students in worship this past weekend at Decrease! They are some of the most passionate people I have ever met. Seriously, if you haven't spent much time with the teenagers at your church - you're missing out. I know everyone thinks they're up to no good and living carelessly in their youth, and sometimes that's true. But there are a ton of students that are genuinely seeking authentic faith and looking to see it lived out by us "old people" (and at 26, yes I'm old to them).
Live it. Be an example for them. Don't just write them off because they are struggling through this thing called life. They need our godly counsel and wisdom.
Whew, sorry to get off on a tangent there. I guess maybe someone out there needed to hear that today. But God has just really pressed upon me how important it is to influence the younger generations.
So like I said, leading worship and contentment go hand in hand for me. I will talk more later this month on ways that I still struggle with insecurities with my voice and music. But knowing that I'm doing what I'm called to do, gives me so much peace.
I'm sharing a few video snippets below that I gathered from students and leaders of the awesome weekend!
Hope you all had an amazing weekend as well! We're currently taking a time of "rest" and spending a few days in Orlando at Disney! I will be updating the blog every day, and I have a feeling it won't be too hard to find ways to be content while on vacation. Just a guess though. ;)
