When my strength is just not enough, I’ve got a Friend Who will never stop fighting for me!
Let’s face it…Life can be extremely challenging, with the broadcast news, the boss and the job, that hectic commute, the kids, money problems, distress, stress, the crazy, unpredictable weather…(Need I go on?!)
Sometimes you need a break from it all…just to clear your mind, renew your spirit and uplift your soul!
Life is a huge challenge, but life can also be wonderful and celebrated.
In my hometown, we do something…on a regular basis…to unite, restore & rejuvenate the entire community.
We celebrate life and one another, with festivals that commemorate every aspect of life that is. This is something we do here, in my hometown, that makes it all bearable, and downright enjoyable.
We celebrate life and one another, with festivals that commemorate every aspect of life and all the good that life brings.
…a festival designed with “you” in mind!
… We’ve got a different festival almost every week of the year!
So, c’mon down to our hometown, and unwind and forget your cares & troubles…
…at a festival just for you!
Too much background noise? Do you suffer from noise overload sometimes? Confusion, mis-information, headaches, aggravation, frustration, are all by-products of the “wrong” kind of background noise!
But what about the “right” kind of background noise? I mean, the kind that settles you, changes the mood in the room, relaxes your mind, makes you want to just relax!?
Background music can be therapeutic, relaxing, even help you fall asleep. But it has to be the “right” sound. It has to fit.
When we’re expecting company over for dinner, I’ll often do a quick search on Youtube or Google for easy downloads. The selection is awesome!
There’s a simple way to overcoming fear of singing in public, and using a microphone to amplify your Vocal Gift!
This is what happened to me…
Place: New Orleans, LA
Sitting in the back row of the choir, one day, I began to daydream about being in front of the microphone, singing to a crowd.
I listened and enjoyed the soloist, as she led the choir in rehearsal, and looked forward to Sunday morning, when we’d all get to “show-off” our talents!
After rehearsal, I went home, went into my bedroom, closed the door, and stood in front of the mirror, holding my hair brush as though it were a microphone. Then I got an idea…
I chose my favorite album, put it on the Hi-Fi,
…and when the music began, I resumed my place in front of the mirror, holding my hair brush, and singing my heart out! No fear. No worries, or cares about how I sounded. Just free, carefree, joyous singing.
Before long, the bedroom door opened. Only, I didn’t hear it, nor did I hear anyone enter the room. Instead, I continued to sing, as my intruder took a quiet seat on the side of my bed.
When the song ended, I heard, “That was lovely.”
I turned in surprise, and all I could manage to say was, “Mama!” I don’t know if I was embarrassed, or just annoyed.
But after hiding for so long, the very thing I wanted to share,
…here’s what I discovered.
…the power of belief works to attract into our reality, those things that we think about!
(Remember, I had been daydreaming about singing in front of others, without fear or hesitation!)
“What things so ever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” Saint Mark 11:24
Do you Have a deep desire?
Try God. Believe. Pray….Be Grateful. Then…
- Write down on paper the thing you want.
- Turn the paper onto the other side, & list steps toward making it happen…leaving space between each step.
- Now, go through each step, & fill-in the details that need to happen to make each step occur.
- …AND now
- TAKE ACTION!
- Find a song you like.
- Find a place to rehearse, alone.
- Find someone you trust to listen to you sing the song.
- Record yourself.
- Tell someone about your recording!
- Remind yourself that you CAN do all things through Christ, Who gives you strength.
If you truly believe that you have already received the thing you desire, your actions will reflect it. (This rule, actually, refers to everything! That’s how the Law of Attraction works!)
Think it, Do it, & Have it!
You can discover a new voice, with music to relax your mind!
