Rise above

There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater. Be vulnerable, put your guard down. Step up, and rise above yourselves. and I realized that tonight. It was the first time I've led a song and said a prayer.. out loud. And to be honest, it felt really good. It felt good to finally step out of my comfort zone, put my guard down, and not worry about how I would sound, or how stupid I would seem. That didn't matter at all tonight, because this time, it wasn't about me. But instead, it was about God, and for Him. I guess we gotta remember that when we step up at church, as leaders, it shouldn't be for the fame and the glory, but all for God. With that being said, this, for me wouldn't have happened if it weren't for my friends, who kept pushing me, and made me strive to just do it. I guess all I needed was that extra push, for me to step up, and not doubt myself. And for that, I'm so grateful for them. You guys know who you are lol, so thanks. much ! My friends are the best eh? ;)

(edit) Chanced upon this while reading Eunice's note.
Take that step out of your comfort zone and be obedient to His call because, as I’m continually being taught, you never know the extent of how God will use you and what He will show you until you let Him.

Nuff' said.
