My friends and me have a country band. It all started when we decided to be a part of a talent show. I never knew I would like it so much. It wasn’t easy. We missed out on some stuff because of rehearsals. We would play the same songs over and over until we could do it without the music and the transitions were smooth. I was so nervous the day of the talent show. I made myself sick. I was second guessing myself. I was afraid of letting my friends down. One wrong note on the guitar or forgotten words to a song could knock us out of winning. I prayed so hard just to get through it.
When I stepped out onto the stage, the spot light was so bright. I could not see the audience. We started to play and the music sounded incredible! Going through a sound system was so much more clear and crisp. Nothing like our old outdated amplifiers. After a few seconds, the excitement came over me and I was not sick or afraid anymore.
When we got to the last song, they brought up the house lights. The crowd was on their feet and they were swaying to the music. I have never seen anything like it in my life. The feeling you get when people like what your doing and are responding. The best day of my life!
If you work hard and prepare there is no reason you should be afraid. Sometimes you just have to step out on faith and believe in yourself. It would have been easy to quit or give-up. What’s the fun in that?
I prayed just to get through the show. God did so much more than I prayed for, afterward we had several people come up and try to book us for more shows! A band was born. Now I can have that incredible joy of being on stage way more often.
Can’t wait to see what God has instore for us next!
Have a super great week!!
