Today (the day I’m writing this) is Friday…the day after the Jeremy Camp and Natalie Grant concert. I’m a little bit tired from all of the excitement, but I am thankful. Every time I get to go to a concert, I get a little emotional about it. That’s because that’s where my journey to becoming a LifeSongs team member officially started. June 8 makes two years of being here at LifeSongs. It feels like a lifetime (in a good way) because I feel like my heart has always been here.
On March 8, 2015 my hubby and I went to see Toby Mac at the Saenger theatre. If you know anything about me at all, you know I LOVE Toby Mac! I make that known VERY frequently! I remember that Mandisa was playing at the event that night as well. I can’t really remember anything else besides that and seeing Toby Mac. That is probably because I was sooo nervous.
I was anxious because I wanted to talk to Julie and Libby about a possible job opening. At the time, I was working as a hairdresser and I really enjoyed it, but I knew God was calling me to do more; whether it was at LifeSongs or somewhere else.
I was anticipating talking with them, but was scared to death all at the same time. I remember my husband telling me if I didn’t go and talk to them, I would regret it. And boy was he right! (Don’t tell him I said that! I don’t like to admit it when he is right!!) I was literally sweating from head to toe as I walked to the LifeSongs table. I felt like I was going to pass out, but kept walking. Something in me just kept going. It felt like the longest walk of my life!
I was anxious because I knew that God had a plan and a purpose for my life, and I felt in my spirit that things were going to be changing. It was the fear of the unknown that I battled. It was the fear of having to trust God completely. He had to be the one to do it. He had to be the one to make it happen. It was up to him, not me. As a person who likes to have control over certain things, this was tough for me.
Let’s just say that my decision to follow after what I felt like God was whispering to me has been one of the greatest rewards in my life. It’s not a feeling I can really explain in words, but the sheer joy I have in where God has placed me is incredible.
Don’t be afraid to take that step..the one that could possibly catapult you to EXACTLY where God wants you. Even if you do it sweating and nervous, trust that God has it all worked out.
Concerts will always remain near to my heart and I’m thankful for the opportunity to get to experience those moments with my LifeSongs family!
