my dear worship pastor, joseph, sends us a daily devotion,
and today's struck a chord in my heart. i have always loved
king david for saying, "i am not going to sacrifice anything
that costs me nothing!"
i thought i would share with you something that costs me
dearly. occasionally, i am asked to sing at church services,
weddings, and funerals, which is a sweet honor. the rub,
though, is that i am introverted, self conscious, and fearful.
i have never envied another's talent, but i can assure you
that i have turned green watching a singer just have the
time of her life expressing her gift. what would that be
like to sing your heart out and enjoy every minute? i
the scripture joseph shared this morning is psalm 112:5,
"a good man deals graciously and lends..." it reminded
me that as long as i lend my talent graciously, though
it is costing me dearly, the Lord will use it. that's all
