God is faithful, so don’t be fearful. Remind yourself today in the gap between where you are and where you want to be that God knows exactly where you need to be. Speak to your soul, tell it to sing in the silence. Tell your lips to confess ‘You are faithful, Lord’. Read scriptures about His faithfulness.
“But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, ‘Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!’ ‘Martha, Martha,’ the Lord answered, ‘You are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” - Luke 10:40-42
The thing we often neglect is that when we allow our heart to become weary, burdened, and battered, it affects everything we hold in our hands — our relationships, responsibilities, and resources all become affected by what is or isn’t within our hearts. When our heart is running on empty, but our hands remain full, we are heading for trouble.
I have always felt that music was one of the most powerful mediums for conveying truth, expressing emotion and reaching people in a way nothing else can. This theory was proven to me early on in my career. When I was just venturing into the music world, I was a part of a group called Truth. We played nearly 300 dates a year (yes…300) and traveled all over. One night, though, we were back in Seattle at my home church. My friends and family were in the audience and it was a blessing to perform for them.
