Hi Everyone!! It's been such a long time since I've posted anything! I can't even tell you how crazy life has been since school has started, It's been a good crazy, but crazy nonetheless. Remember how I told you I've been thinking about how I've decided to change up my blog slightly? Well, today is the day ladies and gentlemen.
I've been going to school to get a music degree that I had no idea what to do with. I still dont really, but besides learning how to hear inverted diminished 7ths, and how to conduct Mozart's Jupiter symphony, and sing a bajillion German Liters (which has been AWESOME), I've also learned about being held accountable for the gifts and oppertunities you've been given. Being held accountable- thats a heavy thought. Jessup has been a time of nothing but opportunities and open doors, and on Thursday night at the Courage To Be You concert the Lord spoke to me in a way that I was not prepared for. It wasn't an audible voice or anything (I really wouldn't be prepared for that!!) but it was sense of serious conviction that communicated these three words "You cannot stop." I knew exactly what that meant, and I couldn't help but agree... and cry (of course!).
|look how humongous that water bottle is! Lordy, I must have been parched. ANYWAYS, there I am playing ages ago at Vintage Faith in Santa Cruz.|
I've decided to pick up my music again, and this time I'm serious. It's not so much about being this fantastic singer or even a songwriter, as much as it is about the message. Do people know what Jesus is all about?! If they don't, I'm gonna tell em! Actually I'm gonna sing it to them, but you know what I mean. Basically, I'm over knowing what God wants me to do, but remaining my comfort zone. That never seems to work...
So... Step one is getting back out there, and I am. Next Friday, I'm playing at Origin Coffee and Tea at 7pm in Rocklin CA with my old friends from Jessup (the first time around), The Music Room. I havent played a show like this in yeeeeeeeeaaarrrs. I liken this oppertunity to Valentine's day, when your door knocks, and you dont really know who it is, but you open the door only to see this gigantic teddy bear as a gift. I wasnt really sure what the Lord was saying to me, but I just said yes, and the next day Dane, from the Music Room sent me a FB message saying that their opener had cancelled and wanted to know if I wanted to open for them...When the Lord decides to do something in your life, he's not joking around. ANYWAYS!!! Now that this post has become a freaking book, here's the point, I'm playing a show with the Music Room on Friday of Next week, and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE if you showed up. Here's the Info.
