So, I LOVE to sing. LOVE IT. Ok, let me be clear here. I do LOVE to sing, but I’m probably the only person who cares to hear it. God gave me a heart for praising Him. I love to sing and raise my hands and even dance to praise songs. I say, “I am one that definitely makes a joyful noise.” What God didn’t give me was the skills needed to be a singer. I’m told that I’m quite tone deaf; hmmm. Wonder if that is simply a matter of opinion? :o)
My lack of ability does not effect my desire one little bit. That equals a win/win. This cannot always be said about things in our life that we have a desire for and no skill to go along with it. You see, if I decided I was going after a singing career, simply on my desires to sing, I would be sorely disappointed and maybe even depressed.
God gives us the ability to do the things that He has called us to do. Now, I would never say that if God wanted me to sing at a late age in life, that He couldn’t give me the ability. Of course he could. He has me set on a course that doesn’t require me to sing. And, the course He has me on uses the skills and talents He has blessed me with completely. I am in my zone!
A familiar scripture is: Proverbs 16:9 which says, “In their heart humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.” What a wise and loving Father. Without this truth, I might have went down the road of trying to be a singer. I’m extremely thankful that was never the case. I am very happy with the skills I’ve been blessed with and how the Lord allows me to use them. I am very grateful for a God that loves me so very much. Thank you my Lord.
