It's been really obvious since day one that singing is something I'm meant to do.
But it wasn't always something I was encouraged to do.
I was told was that my voice was ok, but "nobody's ever going to listen to you with headphones on."
And I believed it....until 2018.
I had sung the anthem for a football game.
It was big deal and my friends were telling me how proud they were.
One of them said, “I wanted my husband to listen to it and he was going to just listen to it on his phone. But I told him to put his headphones on to get the full experience!”
I realized then, “Oh! People are listening to me with headphones on!”
My voice IS enough.
And if I hide it or bury it or package it up with a whole bunch of other stuff, I'm not honoring the gift that God gave me.
So I will cling to the old rugged cross, remember the sacrifice that he made, and honor the gifts that he's given me.
