Last night I was talking to my childhood friend and we were discussing our lives and how much we both have had to overcome and survive. She reminded me that life can only get better from here, and that I always seem to float back to the top no matter how many times I’ve been sunk. Then we laughed and came up with the word “bobber”. Well it’s better than floater. Only by the grace of God can we pick ourselves up and become bobbers. I’ve become a good lil bobber. Up and down so many times, surviving this crazy world. Just remember, when you get to the top, take a big breath of fresh air! See you at the top. Hmm... sounds like the beginning of a new song.

Last Sunday at church, my pastor asked the congregation a pointed question; " Are you walking in your God given annointing?" So I had to ask myself; am I using the gifts and talents God has given me, or am I so busy doing everything else that I forget about Gods specific calling? Sadly the answer left me feeling a bit guilty. I feel like I've wasted so much time just getting by that I've missed out on all the fun and joy of just being me. Sounds silly but so true. When I sing, write songs, or just sit down to play the piano, I feel so satisfied. Why is it always the last thing I have time for? Well I am on a pursuit to change the direction of my life. I want to shift my focus and creatively find new ways to use my talents. This blog is just the beginning of this "moving forward". I want to encourage everyone reading this to take a moment and ponder the same question my pastor asked, and then allow God to show you and direct your life path for His Glory.
