Who loves memories? Sometimes, I have a weird photographic memory. I can remember what my wife was wearing when I proposed to her, even further when we went out on our first date! Creepy, maybe. But I tend to remember some of the most random things. But also the greater things.
When I played at our church’s major conference for the first time in Buena Park, CA and worshipped with a large congregation on stage. It was awesome. Or the time I went to the Philippines for 3 weeks and got to lead worship in a whole other country and the experiences that comes with it. It’s all powerful stuff and looks great for your musicianship, experience, and testimonies. But, we can get lost in the memories…
I love to look back on what God has done with me and through me, but sometimes I’m too busy looking back and not focused forward on where God wants to take me.
“He did this with me back then, I got to sing at this place one time, I did this, I did that…”
But what is He doing right now?
Surely, there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off. –Proverbs 23:18
We don’t have to look behind us for great memories, if we are faithful and study His word and give the glory to Him for the talents that He has given us, our future is bright. He has new stories and adventures for us to embark on. Be patient, be humble, He knows the desires of your heart. If we remain faithful and put Him before our guitar or our tone, He’ll take us where we need to go.
Thank you Lord for the memories and what You have done with us so far. We look ever so forward to the work you still have for us to do.
I hope this has blessed you and would love to hear stories here, or on Instagram or Twitter @anhonestsound!
