This past weekend was such a sweet time for me and I wanted to tell you a little bit about it. Over the past six months, our worship team from my church has been writing and preparing to record an album. Hours upon hours were spent practicing and raising money in hopes to get a CD made to offer to the public for free. Amazingly enough, I got to be a part of it all.
Being in the recording studio was a huge dream come true for me. When I was little I used to pretend that I was in a studio and I would record myself on my little tape player singing all kinds of random songs in my whiney, northern accent. I know, kind of silly.. but it’s the truth. It’s just that I never really thought that dream would actually come true.
So when I stepped into the room at the studio in Ft Worth, put on the huge headphones and started to sing into the mic, it was sort of like my life stopped for a moment. I started to see images in my mind of myself back when I was that little girl, totally unaware of what life had for me in future. Everything was flashing before my eyes and I had one of those moments that I will never forget: I felt like God was saying, Linnae, I created you, I KNOW you even if you don’t fully think I do, and not only do I want to give you your deepest hearts desires but also way more beyond that.
No, it wasn’t this huge, glamorous type recording scenario that you may be picturing in your head. No, I’m not trying to be a rockstar. This was just a one time weekend deal. But to me, it meant the world. It was a gift, a huge gift. A totally fun experience that I will never forget.
God gives us space to do the things we love, my friends. You have gifts that have been given to you and will be utilized differently at different points in your life. Enjoy the process, and learn to accept and enjoy the unexpected gifts that are given along the way!
