In my last post, I mentioned that my husband has been teaching the kids how to play worship music on the piano. I am so thankful for this gift that he is passing on to the children.
Well a couple of weeks ago, I was listening to the kids playing and I was enjoying myself tremendously.
And then this light bulb went off in my head, if they can learn the piano, why can’t I?!
On and off throughout my childhood, my parents paid for me to have piano lessons, but due to my lack of motivation and discipline, I never learned. I always felt like my window of opportunity to learn the piano was over and my ship had sailed. I have always put musical ability in this narrow box of childhood. I am not sure why I held this belief that if a person never learns an instrument as a child, they can’t learn one as an adult.
Well, that day my light bulb came on, I asked one of my kids to teach me a few chords…and I loved it! I have been playing for hours every day since and I honestly feel like I have discovered a part of me that has been missing for many years. (I know that sounds super dramatic, but that is just how I feel;)).
I may never lead worship before people, but I feel like this is an important piece in my worship before the Lord.
How about you? Is there anything that is in your heart to begin that you have disqualified yourself from for whatever reason? Maybe it is an idea from the Lord and He wants you to revive it? I want to encourage you today to take a step of faith and see where it takes you…:)
