The truth is, I can’t afford NOT to live for God.
Jesus died to take away my sins. Psalm 28:7 explains it best: “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.” (NIV) I can be having the WORST day, but the moment I start singing unto God – TO God – everything seems to fade away. My heart desires to touch the heart of God and the hearts of His beloved creation. This is when I feel my purpose being fulfilled.
“Why DO you spend so much time in church?” they ask.
“The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.” (Psalm 28:8, NIV) To be anointed is to be chosen by God for a specific purpose, to hold a sacred appointment from God (read 1 John 2:20, Amplified version). I have been called and anointed to sing for God. From the first time I stepped onto the platform to sing before God and the church body, I knew with all certainty that I had stepped into my calling.
