So I’m singing at church on Sunday during the worship time, and I notice the women next to me had a lovely voice. As she is singing her heart out to the Lord, I am thinking to myself, man I really can not sing. Now I am not just saying this to be hard on myself, it’s pretty much a fact. When my kids were younger Drums used to say to me, “don’t sing to the kids, they will grow up thinking singing out of tune is normal!” Drums can sing, and carry a tune, I can’t, plain and simple. So at church on Sunday I secretly pretended that it was me singing with that beautiful voice. I smiled to myself thinking I sounded so beautiful….only to be quickly jarred out of my delusion by my son when he elbowed me to ask what time it was! But for that brief moment I enjoyed being the next Christian American Idol Finalist.
The service concluded, and I went to introduce myself to this gifted singer next to me. And she said, “Oh Sandy I remember you, you taught a bible study I was in when I first started coming to this church. You are such a gifted teacher, I still remember several things from that study!”
Yes, I was once again reminded how God makes each of us so unique and gives gifts and abilities that are special to each of us! You can truly see God’ handiwork in each of us! And I love how He uses each of us in different ways to honor Him.
