It has been such a long time! The holidays are always my busiest time with all the family and travel this season brings. I have so many things to update you all on as well as many ways I have seen the Lord in my life recently.
Two weekends ago I had a big breakthrough in my faith. I have been singing at my church for awhile but always allowed myself to be controlled by my fear and nervousness. But something about this night just took away every fear I had… now when I stepped on stage I thought I was going to throw up, but, when I started singing I just felt 100% comfortable.
You could just feel God’s presence and it was beautiful. I felt as though I was stepping into God’s best for my life. I finally got over the selfishness of nervous and was about to put all of that aside as I worshiped the Lord.
I don’t know if anyone can connect to this and truthfully… it was one of those moments you just have to be there for it. Something special happened in that room and my human words could never do it justice.
However, my encouragement to you today (as we are officially in the Christmas Season!!!!) Is to live in those moments. This year, make it your Christmas goal to find a way to live in that overwhelming love of Christ. Honestly, I have no clue how to do this. I can’t give you a sure proof plan to living in Jesus’ presence all the time. But I can give you this:
The moment I allowed the Lord to be my source of strength instead of my talent… I was given something amazing. When I closed my eyes and blocked out all the world and it’s problems, I was able to meet my king.
The feeling was amazing and one I am striving to live in. Denying myself of the emotions and actions I find myself doing every day. Choosing how I respond and deciding how my day will go. Giving Jesus the control and having my job be to respond in the holiest way possible.
