Apart from spending time with my amazing production leaders and team, I got to stand in for jad gillies on an item for colour conference! It was the acoustic and lead vocals for a song called “beautiful things” by Michael Gungor. Just goes to show when there’s no one else to be picked, God picks you! Ha!
Special shout out to Jesse McGowan, one of our many stage hands who stood in “rhythms of grace” for Matty Crocker. He killed it and I hope creative nicks him to some more singing opportunities!
yeah, we’re considering it.
Well songwriting isn’t exactly a specific science. cowriting is hard, and I had to let a song go to the person who had more developed ideas tonight.
it’s about the craft of the song, releasing the person to grab it and make the tweaks needing to be made.
can’t get precious about a gift that’s on loan.
conflicted in the approach to shift gears. I’m happy with what I’m doing at college and church, but it’s not what I’m called to do. I’m called to lead worship, and despite myself knowing I’d be more monetarily successful following in Dad’s footsteps or in those of my degrees, it’s not what I was created to do. this is a season of sacrifice to be a part of something greater than my calling; the calling and purpose of a local church.
I believe in the calling of what God has gifted in me to do. I know that He has prepared for me good works to do in advance. I will continue to be faithful, but my prayer is that God will supernaturally open opportunity for me to continue to hear from God and lead people in worship. May people see it in my life off platform first before anything else. May they see it in the relationship I have with family first.
pressed but not crushed.
Having a point to make doesn’t always mean having to make the point.
