This evening I led worship for the student ministries at my church. It was a sparse band, just me and my piano. I don’t know what was going on in the hearts and minds of those facing the screen tonight, but I heard voices, voices, voices….it was breathtaking. Sometimes with a full band that kind of opportunity is rare. What a treat to witness that tonight, and oh I pray God smiled at those hearts and their melodies.
Pastor Mark had some very good teaching for everyone; he encouraged discipleship. How great is that!??!! As I’ve been thinking about the young adults, that was something that had come to mind…encouraging them to offer discipleship. I don’t know if Mark is thinking what I’m thinking or not, but wouldn’t that be uber cool. My brothers and I definitely benefited from discipleship in our youth. Robert and Jodi Barbazette took us under their wings, one-on-one, giving us personal wisdom and Godly guidance. I also had a woman named Myra Thomason who was my first voice teacher. She always emphasized the message with music, prompting me to dig deeper with my faith. I pray our youth will take advantage of the opportunity and advice from Mark. It will stay with them always.
I must get up really early tomorrow and take my car back to Mock Tire…now my car is stalling when idle. Loverly. Ah, well..the anticipation of this new job out-trumps that. I really hope the transition is smooth…it sounds like something I will actually enjoy doing. 🙂
Fanterific evening, all!
