That's great, Shani! Great blog! 10:27?? not 10:30, 10:27 blessings, Lovely! what's a breakie?
Shani you wrote: In our weakness, He proved Himself strong, and we were rewarded with a wonderful and very intimate time of worship leading. Its not until we take our eyes off ourselves and put our focus on Him, that we truly see how awesome He is. I think this says it all! A cousin of mine would say "We must become "Christ-centered" rather than "self-centered".
I am chuffed to bits that God blessed you through your journey to obedience.
I recognized again that this worship leading is not about me, and how I feel, it's about Him!
You have no idea how thrilled I am to hear you say that. Hold fast to that belief my friend, and God will be able to use you mightily.
Shani, thanks for sharing part of you with us. You have a great gift of writing, and serving. Now, on a humorous note, dont you be changing that ring tone either! God Bless
Thank you 'Shani' for sharing sharing this event in your life with us. I hope the Lord brings you to do more greater things like this for him. Be blessed. Amen.
How cool, dear Shani! Yep, praise is not about us; it's about how great and wonderful He is. Ans when we are weak, He is strong!
I am so very very proud of you shani. You have come so very far in a short space of time and we give God all the glory for that.
Well done darlin, you keep those eyes of yours firmly focused on HIM and he will lead you through every circumstance,,,, even singing on stage.
So glad that "sore throat" went away real quick!!!
Thankyou for your encouraging post. I needed to be reminded that it's not about me but about him. In May I finished my internship as a student teacher and while I haven't yet been hired full time I have been hired as a substitute. I feel very strongly I will be called back into the classroom next week and the enemy keeps bringing up all the hard days I had last year and all the mistakes I made. Telling me I'm not ready to handle a class on my own and that I can't do it. Well, I have decided not to listen if I am going to walk in God's plan for my life (and I feel very strongly he has called me to be a teacher) then I need to learn to trust him and his word. And so the verses I cling to as I return to the classroom are Philippians 4:13 and Joshua 1:9.
"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Philippians 4:13 (KJV)
"Have not I commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9 (NIV)
Thanks again, I feel like your post was just what I needed tonight.
