The Cry of a Music Leader!

The cry of a music leader!

When you're called to lead and do it with your whole heart, you're happy and you do it with gladness, because you're called!

What makes one sad is, while leading, you see the needs of everyone else. The desperation of those wanting a touch from God, but not knowing exactly how to get it. You see your more seasoned saints, who should know, "watch and pray," staying to themselves, rather than going to pray with someone that needs it.

The cry of of a leader is, God, when are You going to send help? It's been so long and we want to be helping in the altars, but need the younger, or older to get it for themselves and help out!

The cry, can't you see those behind you, with just a simple twist of your head, needing someone to help them reach the next level with God?

When will the younger generation see the need that the older generation needs help and just get in there and do it?

Did we lose something along the way? Is it just me?

My cry, I need help!!! Help with music, help with singing, help with altar work!

When will you step up and help your leader?

Am I the only one that feels this way? Is there other parts of the ministry that feel this same way?

***Sis. Jessica Howard is an amazing altar worker! I was privileged to be able to stand beside her and help pray with people. What an honor to know her!***

Me and Dayana tonight after church!
This morning, when I looked back and saw my friend, Dayana and her family, at church, it made me so happy, yet, I was ashamed (avergonzado).

No, not ashamed that she had come, but ashamed of the fact that it is because of my 4 year old daughter that she was there and not because of me.

You see, Josey, my 4 year old, has been the one inviting Dayana’s son, Denziel, Josey’s classmate, to church.

Denziel & Josey tonight after church!
Along with Denziel, was his cousin, Miguel, another classmate of Josey’s. She’s been inviting him too!

There is no excuse for me not inviting Dayana, only shame because it was my 4 year old daughter inviting them and not me. I am hoping I can learn from her childlike exuberance. Learn to get out of my comfort zone. Become more like her, like a child in my manner of having no shame.

Why has it taken me so long to see this? I don’t know. But I do know that if I could have more of a childlike faith, or become more like my 4 year old, I could invite more people to church.

Ms. Andrea, Dayana's daughter, at church tonight!
She has no fear of rejection, only a small hope that one day they’ll come. Not ashamed!

My prayer is for God to make me more like Josey.

Maybe then I won’t be ashamed.

Ashamed that I did not ask first. Ashamed because a 4 year old beat me, a 29 year old, at inviting others to church.

Has your child ever put you to shame in a situation similar to this? Would you be willing to share a time of when you were ashamed?

I love to hear from my viewers/readers and your feedback is appreciated!

Luke 9:26 King James Version (KJV)

26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed…
