“..so I’m not so musically gifted”

By Georgia Baker

In the recent blog: Butch (YMO from Coffs) said, There are so many reasons to thank and worship God, and there are so many ways to worship” I’ve come to realise, you don’t have to be musically talented to enjoy and appreciate worship and praise. Music is such a powerful way to pray, it can connect us to God in the most simple yet profound ways. I’m a strong believer in God in the little things in my life, Music is such an easy way for me to connect with God!! It seems simple, but prayer isn’t complicated.


Being a listener is so rewarding, the Worship Band is the vessel of God, while I listen I become vulnerable and I offer myself up to Him through praise. I get to experience and be moved in prayer as I witness God at work in the room. I sit, stand and kneel giving my all to Him in small gestures of praise.

 

The following Bible verse from Jeremiah 29:12 says, “Then you will call on me and come pray to me, and I will listen to you.”
For someone not so musically gifted, it encourages me, it’s saying, you don’t have to be that person at the front of the microphone to meet me in the music. Even if you don’t have a voice like Beyonce, can’t hit the high notes or simply sing in tune. It doesn’t bother God. He is the one person who won’t complain if have a bad voice.

 

Be vulnerable and allow God to work through you, throw your hands up in the air. Don’t be afraid to be one of the “weird”  people at the front with their eyes closed praising Jesus. Be engaged in the moment and be filled with the Holy Spirit, because it is truly the most amazing feeling!!!

 

“Sing to Him, sing praise to Him: tell of all his wonderful acts”

psalm 105:2
