I know it’s been a while since I last posted but I just didn’t feel inspired to post and I always want to deliver the best content.. ♥️
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:”
Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV
So you must be confused by the title.. let me take you back to 2015.. I had just joined a church and found the passion to sing but was always to nervous, I attended the rehearsals and everything. Then one day it was time to sing with the choir and I literally froze! As in I remained in my seat and they all got up! I just didn’t feel ready, I just remember having a lot of fear. I was so disappointed in myself! I let the choir down and most importantly I let myself down.. I promised God and I broke it..
So fast forward to 2018 I’ve now grown up so much spiritually and mentally, joined a new congregation that I feel comfortable and happy in. I set my self goals for the year. After being baptised in January (I’ll probably do a separate blog for that) I was more determined to fulfil my goals, and one of them was to join the choir and sing in front of everyone and to one day lead. So I joined the choir just after spring, attend rehearsals then sang for the first time (as backup) unexpectedly and loved it. It wasn’t as hard as I thought, I was nervous but after a minute on stage I felt so comfortable. So from then forth I was singing in the choir as back up every Sunday without fail. There were days I wanted to give up because I felt that I wasn’t good enough but something always told me to carry on, to just keep going, I’m nearly there.. So I waited.
After months of singing back up, I was asked to sing a song ministration.. this time I’m not back up I’m singing lead.. as in I’ll be in the front.. as in wow..my heart sank and I went back to scared mode because this was beyond outside my comfort zone! But I was obedient, how could I say no? Especially to something I’ve always wanted. So I agreed to do this with 4 of days preparation, not enough time lol. I was practicing the song everyday when possible just so I can perfect the song but I knew I would be so nervous on the day and I didn’t want that but it’s my first time and nerves are bound to kick in right? Anyways, on Sunday 16th December I sang and heard my voice on a mic by myself for the first time in front of people and it felt weird.. overwhelming.. scary but all in all amazing! I’m glad I finally did it, my goal was to do it before the year ended and it happened I’m actually so proud of myself. I wanted to do it on my birthday, so I literally did it a week before.. not bad right? God’s plan and your plan will always differ!
Have you got any more goals that you still need to achieve? Do you think just because it’s the ending of the year you can now chill and start again 1st January? Nah, none of that! Start now and what I want you to do is think of your 2018 goals.. what have I not done? I have two weeks left of 2018 how can I now achieve them? You can set your mind to do anything you want it to do.. just believe…
I cried after my ministration.. because this is something I’ve wanted to do since 2015 and I did it! It doesn’t matter how long it takes you to get to the finishing line, as long as your consistent and determined to get to where you want to get to.. I promise you.. it will happen.. I’m a living testimony of that.
I said to myself one day I will sing in front of people, I don’t know when and I don’t know how but one day.. and now look.. I did it !! I did it!! Lool .. Now you can too.. Yes YOU!
