In this day and age, there are so many experiences that one can have. But which should we choose? Over the past few months, I have been reminded of all that I am good at and of all that I would love to pursue.
Yet I don’t think God is calling me to pursue it all. He is calling me to pursue a very few limited things. Those things are still being worked out in my mind, but I know that music is probably the most prominent one for me.
You see, I have been playing music since 6th grade, when I started playing trumpet. I have played almost every day of my life since then and I am continually trying to do more. Yet I have lost the discipline of practicing. Of furthering myself each day to be better and to do more. I have become complacent and don’t spend as much time on music as I should.
So I have made getting back into the swing of things musically my #1 goal for 2011. Writing. Rehearsing. Learning new instruments. Jamming with others. Discovering new music and artists. And I am so excited about it.
You see, I can’t do many things well. And that’s okay. I can play music. So I will start there.
Where should you start? What is obviously your best gifting?
