This is the time you have waited for. For years you have sat on the sidelines, knowing full well that God has given you all the tools you need to get out and use your talents for Him. You have watched “reality shows” like The Voice, American Idol, and others and rolled your eyes at the silliness. But secretly, you were a tad jealous those people are at least following their dreams, and actually doing something about it! You’ve been asked repeatedly if you have a CD, or if you are singing anywhere, or dancing, acting, etc. right now. You grin and sheepishly shrug, as if you have no idea what to say. And maybe you don’t.
You’ve felt ill-prepared to take the next step, mainly because there’s no one to work with locally. Maybe you have even tried or talked to some folks, or worse been burned by someone you thought could help.
Or maybe you’ve shown your art off before, and pursued this once to limited success. And now, you don’t even want to show that CD or old art off anymore. It’s not you, maybe you just feel it’s outdated or wasn’t really done with the quality you wanted.
But this year, instead of lamenting over past failures or going nowhere, how about taking some steps to getting going with your own art and ministry.
