    For I, Yahweh your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, Don't be afraid; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13 WEBWe have a proverb we live by when performing live music: "If you hit a bad note, hit it good." Yes, it should be "hit it well," but that's the phrase I grew up hearing in South Carolin...

    Because he has set his love on me, therefore I will deliver him. I will set him on high, because he has known my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him, and honor him. I will satisfy him with long life, and show him my salvation.' Psalm 91...

Surrender

  • Then Jesus told His disciples, If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. Matthew 16:24 ESV

    I stood at a crossroad in my life and wondered which path to take. At this point, I could continue pursuing a career as a musician who played all night and slept all day. Or I could enroll in Bible college and just trust God. I had to make a choice.

    On one side I felt like I was giving up my life, certainly all the fun in it. On the other, I had this nagging feeling that the Lord wanted me to do this to prepare for something else. Somehow I knew there was more to life than this. I ended up surrendering to His will and enrolled in school. Soon enough, I had lost every friend and fan that I had, just as I thought I would.

    After surrendering to His will, my life changed. Where I thought that I was losing the life I had, I actually found something so much greater. I had actually found my life, and the fun soon began.

    God has a plan and a purpose for you, but it requires total surrender to see it. At first it looks like sacrifice, but in the end the life that He gives you back is so much greater than what you gave Him. When God gives you a chance to lay your life down for Him, surrender.

    Prayer: Father, I will go wherever you tell me. I surrender to Your will. Use me as You see fit and give me Your vision, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people" (Ephesians 6:18).

Amen and Amen! Praise the Lord that you "surrendered to the Lord", what a blessing for so many of us!!! And just look how you are still using the many God-given talents & gifts from before, just in a different way such as computers in your outreach to so many statewide and even overseas, and then music, word and song! And then here is Sylvia, the "Help-mate" God gave you, I'd call it a heavenly match! Blessings unto both of you!
