Comfortable - but not happy. #church #ministry #music #youtube

"God wants to invite us outside our comfort zone, but we’ve decided to stay safe."

I didn't sing for 15 years before I started singing again at First Baptist Church of Whitesburg.

15 years.

I was comfortable - but not happy. I knew what I was called to do and yet I had too much anxiety to do it. It felt so much safer not doing it.

And then God said "Go". And with a gigantic push from my beloved husband, Danny, I did.

Now I sing in front of hundreds and to a radio audience every Sunday. I lead a magnificent choir, who I love dearly and am proud to call my extended family. I sing for weddings and funerals and cherish that I can share those moments with them.

I don't say these things to boast, but to show the grace of God.

Contrary to what many think, it isn't easy for me - sometimes it is next to impossible. But I'm getting there. I trust in Him to deliver me from my fears and I commit my way to Him.

I know that when I am weak, He is strong.

Thank you for believing in and praying for the First Baptist Church of Whitesburg Choir and Music Ministry. Our Cantata is December 13th & 14th at 6 pm, and we would be so honored for you to attend.
