Last night at the meeting.....God hit me over the head with an Electric guitarist :-)

We have just started doing a new thing at our church. Once a month worship discipleship meetings. Last night, the team members who were able to attend the National Worship Leaders Conference in KS this year each spoke about what they learned at the conference.

It’s so funny how God uses people to reach right into our soul. Our Electric guitarist was making facebook posts about how he had no idea what to say at the meeting. Of course I gave him a hard time and teased him a ton. So, when he got up there he said the funniest things that made me laugh…and then he said it…. It hit me like a ton of bricks from above. I’d been trying to put my finger on what was bugging me for a really long time now...

Here is what he said: (paraphrased, but I wish I’d had a voice recorder with me) He said that at the conference, when he took classes for guitarists, he saw a lot of really skilled musicians. It was really unbelievable to see their talent…. But he realized that he and they are both playing to God, well then they are the same….

Woah, I am not a crier at all but it hit me like a ton of bricks.

You see, there are a lot of really talented and incredible people in my church. It honestly just amazes me!~ It’s not hard to look around and feel really small and inadequate amongst such great people of God. I look into the eyes of some of these folks and I see the great theologian, the man who brings the term “spiritual fruit” to life for me, the quiet comic, The girl with the amazing voice ( Ok there are a lot of those  ) The guitarists whom I only hope to be even somewhat as good as them someday ( I am a guitar newbie ) Oh and let's not forget the faithful friend, the true serant, Then of course there is our fearless leader. …I am currently reading Worship Matters by Bob Kauflin… as I read I keep thinking… yep..he does that..uh huh..yep, he’s got that one etc etc… He’s quite a guy. I am so thankful that God has allowed me to serve under such a great leader and even better man. Gosh, I could go on forever!

Well basically it occurred to me how inadequate I was feeling. I am truly honored that I get to serve with these people. And I do mean GET to serve with these people. And I feel privileged that they even allow me there.

What I did not realize is this: We are each serving God as He has intended for us, so that makes us the same 

Becca - you are so right! When we give back to God the gifts He has given us, He isn't concerned with comparing the gifts. He is more concerned with the hearts behind the use of the gifts. He is looking for the sweetest, most devoted, most genuine hearts He can find! I really appreciated what Zack had to say - it was all so good! Glad you had a great experience too! Tina

lol... I just started reading Worship Matters this morning... "While God values skill, He doesn't accept our worship on the basis of it." -Bob Kauflin

OH yes, and I read that chapter shortly before this post :) I think God was preparing my heart for the awaking whack :)
