Sometimes I ask myself this question! Because there’s always going to be a bigger audience. A higher chart position. A better song. A better singer. If I’m chasing after the goal of being the best or biggest I’ll never get there. And I’ll be horribly unhappy. So why am I doing all this? First, because of the immense joy I get from doing this. And secondly, because I know someone, possibly you, is reading this or hearing a song and is being inspired to live their own life more fully, more joyfully. Life is too short to be miserable. God wants to shine through you. But as you keep your light hidden under a cover of fear, insecurity, of never good enough, God will go unseen. You are a miracle created with amazing precision to be a unique teller of truth. My songs, my books, these blogs —are all to tell you that. To convince you that LOVE is real and it’s aiming right at your heart. As you learn to receive it, and then live life as a response to that love, you, my friend, will be a success.
Do you believe that? I pray so.
