Relieved Beyond Measure!
I'm so relieved as God gave me a break through this past week dealing with pride! As you probably have heard I have this Christmas Production at my church that I am involved with. Needless to say there were a lot of solo's to audition for. God chose this specific time as a perfect time to work on pride! (good timing, eh?) There was one solo I had my eye on. I wanted it. I started getting prideful and it took all that was within me to curve those thoughts away and replace them with humbling thoughts. God helped me through it though! I give him the glory for that! It was working though. I started thinking about all the other people who have amazing voice around me and want that solo as well. I started to imagine their voices in that song. There was one girl I knew would be a perfect fit. Anyways the names were called out for the solo opportunities, when it got to the solo I tried out for... Another girls name was said. You would have thought I would have been bummed or something. But as sure as I stand here today, I was RELIEVED! I felt so relieved! I was so happy for the other girl who got the solo. (And it happened to be the girl in whom I thought her voice would fit perfectly for the solo!) HAHA! I love it. Growing is so fun once you actually see your growth!
Well it did dawn on me that I wouldn't get a solo this year and needless to say this did kind of bum me a little bit. But God decided to bless me a little bit... In which you'll have to attend the concert to find out what it is!! Mwahahaha! :) Okay just kidding God did give me a perfect little "add in" for a song. Not quite a solo but it's something! And I could never be happier.
