“Come and listen. Come and listen to what He’s done. He has done for me. He has done for you. He has done for us.” -David Crowder
I woke up this morning with this song in my head and heart. I think I might have been humming it in my sleep. After my morning workout I spent some time being quiet and trying to meditate but I just kept hearing these lyrics in my head. So I decided to listen to the song on my phone and my entire soul exploded with gratitude to God. YES he has done great things for me and you and us! Even in our trying times PRAISE GOD FOR HE IS GOOD! I think why I am so grateful this morning is because in a moment my entire purpose aligned with my entire being.
I dont mean to sound preachy or anything. I have just been reminded what the overarching theme of my life is. The reason I am fighting so hard to make something of myself in this industry. The reason I pursue my passion. The reason for my music. Even the reason for my blog is this…I want my life to say “COME AND LISTEN TO WHAT HE”S DONE. PRAISE GOD FOR HE IS GOOD.”
I’m not forcing my beliefs or berating anyone with a bible.That is NOT my purpose or intent. My pursuits say Come AND LISTEN. My accomplishements say COME AND LISTEN. My failures say COME AND LISTEN. My boldness says HE IS GOOD. My demeanor, my growth, my ambitions say COME AND LISTEN TO WHAT HE’S DONE.
This is my life…COME AND LISTEN TO WHAT HE”S DONE. HE HAS DONE FOR ME. HE HAS DONE FOR YOU. HE HAS DONE FOR US.
Today I am afraid that I am lost. I am afraid I will never achieve the dreams and goals I set for myself. I am afraid that I will never make enough money to sustain myself. I am afraid of an unsure future. I am afraid I have ruined my life. I am afraid I have wasted so much time and money chasing a dream to big to catch. I am afraid that I should give up. I am afraid of being without. I am afraid of my lofty ideas and ambitions leaving me stranded. I am afraid of not being taken seriously. I am afraid I am doing it all wrong. I am afraid I am not good enough. I am afraid my time will never come. I am afraid this road less traveled leads to a dead end. I am afraid it is to costly. I am afraid that my plan is not a plan.
BUT TODAY I CAN SAY…
I haven’t given up. Today I can say I am further along than I was 4 months ago. Today I can say I am resilient. Today I can say God must have gone before me. Today I can say my purpose is greater than my understanding. Today I can say I am an actor. Today I can say I am a singer. I can say I am hopeful. Today I can say being lost is an adventure. I can say I genuinely enjoy my life. Today I can say I have done things that many people will never do. Today I can say that I have plenty. Today I can say my needs are met. Today I can say I believe that God and the universe conspires for my good. Today I can say there is enough light to take another step. Today I can say my fear has not paralyzed me…and that is enough to hold on for one more day.
