1 Peter 4:10-11  Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

Today a friend sent me a note of encouragement about the recent live CD that was created by my church.  I had the honor of writing two of the twelve songs and leading our church body in a live recording of our worship experience.  I have always been a singer – everyone tells me that they always know where I am because they can hear me humming a tune.  I have never, however, considered myself a musician, performer, or song writer.  But last year God gifted me with words to transform into music – worship of Him.  It was a very scary experience to me; working among seasoned artists and professional musicians.  But they embraced my offering – mostly I believe – because it wasn’t from me – it was a seed that God wanted to plant.  He gave me the strength and perseverance.  The process ended up being exhilarating and I can confidently say that God used me to help others worship our mighty God.  I am so thankful that God helped me step out of fear and experience a walk of faith. 

Thank you, Lord.  And so now I am asking, God, would you please lead me down this path again? Would you send me your “seeds” and would you water them in my life.  As another artist said. . . Give me words to speak of Your Glorious Name.  Amen.

    Your verses were an inspiration to me the part about the broken pieces is part of the title of a book God has laid on my heart. Many have suggested I write the book around my son Jeramish James Moses that was raised from the brain-dead state on the third day after doctors tried to get me to side with his father to disconnect him from life support when he was only 18 months old. Now he is in management in his company and turns 21 on May 28 this year! Such a drawing spirit God has given to that young man, he has power, power given to him through the resurected Jesus Christ! The same one who picked up the best of the broken pieces of his young life and transformed him through FAITH into beautifully yielded God serving SON OF GOD BY FAITH.

    Thanks Joan – I love the mosaic of our lives that God glues together with our broken pieces and his grace and mercy. How wonderful it must be to be able to look at your son and know that he is a miracle – a witness to God’s Faithfulness.
