This past Sunday we had a guest speaker at our church. We’ve been going through a series called, From Our Family Room, where we have a discussion format rather than a traditional sermon. The topic for the week was leadership, and the guest speaker shared a word with our church. She said that we are a worshiping people and that when we sing the song of the Lord it glorifies Him and others draw near.
I’m not the greatest singer. I can carry a tune, but I am very timid if ever I need to sing something by myself in front of others. Get me in my car with the radio blasting and I’m a rock star, but that’s different.
The idea of the song of the Lord being within me translated more in my mind to writing. I haven’t been doing much of that lately. I feel all stopped up inside. A large part of that has been the fear that what I have to say has already been said by others in a far superior manner. That has kept me from allowing more than the faintest trickle of words out. I’ve even noticed that in my conversations face-to-face I’m more hesitant to open up my mind to others.
There has been a prompting as of late to reclaim my voice, hone my skills and not waste the talents that God has given me. Our guest speaker even referenced it on Sunday; that it doesn’t matter the amount of talent you have, it’s what you do with it that counts in God’s eyes. I’m not quite sure where to go with this, but I feel God prompting me to join my voice with others again and share the song He’s placed within me.
I’m linking up with Lisa-Jo for Five Minute Friday at her place. Check out how others responded to this week’s prompt: Join
