So this past Sunday I kinda woke up feeling less that peppy. lol…
But I have to say… after getting to church and as soon as my worship team showed up, I immediately felt better. They are such an awesome group of people. They are my life group.
We are currently going through the book of Esther… and I love this book because it reads just like a story. Esther is an amazing woman who God used to carry out his work in saving the Jews from total destruction under the evil plans of Haman.
One thing Pastor said on Sunday that was very encouraging was this: “God works through flawed people and circumstances for his purpose.”
Well… that wasn’t the only thing… lol. but that was one of the thoughts I wrote in my bible. And it’s absolutely true. He can use us... every one of us… no matter what we think of ourselves. No matter what we think we can and can’t do. No matter how bottom-dwelling and helpless we feel.
I struggle when it comes to music… and every time I feel like I should just call it quits, something seems to force me back in. I don’t know why. I always feel less than adequate. I had made a decision when we came to this church that I wasn’t even going to get involved in the musical aspect. And here I am, leading the team with my husband… lol. I’m not trying to compare myself to Esther. I don’t think saving a population of God’s people is written in my story. All I’m saying is, sometimes we just need to trust where God puts us. I don’t think I will ever feel completely right for the job. Perhaps this is an opportunity for me to grow. But if anyone is feeling this way too, perhaps this can encourage them. Just go with it. Try your best. There are no accidents. And pray… a lot.
So here is my process vid. I pretty much only used watercolor and some journaling pen. Much like this post… the journaling went in a completely different direction than originally planned… lol.
