But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you. Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, I give to you. Don'...

The Bad Note Blues

  • For I, Yahweh your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, Don't be afraid; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13 WEB.

    We 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 Carolina. In other words, don't let the fear of failure keep you from trying your very best in a song. If you fail at something, let it be a glorious failure where you held nothing back. You gave it all you had. In the end, you will be happier, and so will the audience. Ninety-nine percent of the audience will not notice a missed note if you just smile and keep going like you intended to do that.

    When God opens the door for you to do something, He will also provide you with the ability to accomplish it. But you cannot let fear hold you back from trying. You have to step out in faith and go through the door that opens. You may not even realize you have the ability to do it unless you try. When the Lord called him, Peter did not know he could walk on water until he got out of the boat.

    So do not let fear hold you back from what God calls you to do. Step out in faith knowing that He has your right hand, and He is the One who will help you. Don't let the worry of making a mistake cause you to miss His entire song. Embrace the challenge with a smile, knowing that God has got your back. If He brings you to it, He will also bring you through it.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You so much for all that You do for me. Please lead me into my destiny and help me make the right decisions. Teach me to trust You and walk with me today. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7).

I always said "be a cat" since cats are great at making a mistake, then getting all dignified like "I meant to do that". lol  I always told this to my figure skaters when I coached.  If you fall, get up and keep going and keep skating your best.

Trust God with everthing that you do and you will succeed. God loves us so much that He sacrified His only son on the cross to save us. There is nothing that God will not give for you! God has blessed me so much that I have to speak about it because if I don't that would not be fair to God. When I talk about God blessing me, I am not bragging, I am testifying of His love for you and me. There is nothing He will not give us if we ask and keep Him first in our Lives. God has sent people to me to tell me about jobs, houses, churches, He even sent my husband to me, someone to sell my house. When things go wrong dont lose heart go to God in prayer and ask for what you need and tell Him your needs and confess your sins. Put God number one in your life and you will see your life change drastically I promise!
