…..for he will not dwell unduly on the days of his life, because God keeps him busy with the joy of his heart. Ecclesiastes 5:6
Being kept busy with the JOY of our heart. Woah, wait.
It’s funny how what we love to do still requires effort, work, thought, etc…but it brings us JOY. All that effort put into the thing(s) you love, IS worth it, because it will bring YOU the most joy. No one will do that thing quite like you will. No one else will give it that same expression.
Picture you have your own lego set placed in front of you. Do you copy another’s design, or do you create something of your own? Maybe as we are learning, we copy other’s designs, and that is ok. But there comes a day when you feel it on the inside. “Will you be brave enough to try your own design?”
“But what if it falls apart?” That’s ok. “What if others laugh at it?’ That’s ok. “What if it takes me 600 try’s to get it built?” THAT IS OK.
You are worth it. The only difference between you and other’s who had a new idea and were successful with it, is………..that they gave it a TRY.
I love music. Playing music, teaching music, singing music. I have never felt that I’m very good at it. I have usually felt under par compared to many others.
The one thing I am sure that I have is PASSION for music. Passion will carry you far. It will take that music and bring it to life. It will bring you JOY. You will stop caring what others think about your ability, and you will start to draw them in by your passion.
I have seen someone that did not like a certain food listen to someone else describe this same food with such passion and love for it, that they decided to try the food again feeling that they may have missed something because that person was so PASSIONATE about it.
So, what is your “music,” your “food?” What is your passion?
Are you ready to give it 600 try’s, and let it bring you JOY?
C’mon. Poke your toe into the water…
