Let's just say, I love Jesus with all of my heart. He is my beautiful Savior and Hero. I will never be able to fully comprehend His sacrifice for me. "At the end of it all....I wanna be in Your arms."
I started listening to BarlowGirl last year(2008) when I heard Million Voices on the radio. I looked up their music and instantly they impacted my life. This trio of girls is unusual. Their music has a pure meaning and depth to it that I can't explain. Their messages in the songs and the examples they set as Christian women have forever changed my life. You girls are awesome. =)
I love boxing....so of course one of my favorite songs is One More Round.
I love music. I can't picture a world without it. I have been playing the drums for about 4 years now and I just started guitar this past year. I am on the youth worship team at our church and I play drums, guitar, and bass...obviously switching off between them...you can't play them all at the same time! lol. I also sing. I taught myself how by listening to stuff like Superchick and BarlowGirl in the car. Seriously. I am a true Karaoke Superstar! haha. I would be singing on the worship team but we have a ton of vocalists and not a whole lot of musicians, so I don't get a mic. But it's ok. I know my place and I'm glad to use my gifts to worship God up there. This past year at our Fine Arts show at our church, I sang and played Beautiful Ending on the acoustic guitar. It was my first time ever to sing/perform in front of people solo. It was nerve-racking, but God gave me a peace about it when I went up there and many people were impacted by the song.
In other words....
God has called me into music ministry. Well, creative arts music ministry. Me and some other girls at my church are forming a ministry that God has called us to do called The Revolution. It uses all aspects of fine arts: music performance, human videos, drill team, dramas, dancing, preaching, all of that combined together into performances that we will be doing throughout the country(traveling). The core of this movement is to raise the banner for Christians in America to STAND UP and BE the Movement. We truly want there to be a revival, a movement, a Revolution in this great nation for Jesus, and we know that WE have to be the ones to make it happen. We have to start the movement, because everyone else has just been waiting around and not doing anything about it. But we WILL do something about it. We are even right now. We have our first chance to perform for our youth group in January, and it's gonna be awesome. The goal of this is to take it out of the church and to "the streets"-to the people. However, our first performance is in the church because God told us that's where it would start and it's a good launching base to get us going.
I'm so excited about The Revolution and just life in general right now. God has TOTALLY changed my life the past year, and I would love to tell anyone who asks my full testimony, because it's pretty frikin amazing. If God can use me, if He can save and change my life, He can do the same for you.
I have such a passion and love for serving Christ. All I want is to please Him with my life. Yeshua....at the end of it all, I want to be in Your arms.
