If I tried to pursue music… like really, genuinely tried, would I have the ability to maybe, just maybe, succeed?
Once in awhile, this brief thought runs through my head, and it leaves my heart feeling very heavy with curiosity and longing. If I could spend the rest of my life using music to transform hearts and lead people to Jesus, I would.
To me, music is the most beautiful form of art that has ever been created. Every divine tune, every melodious harmony, every refined rhythm, every vivid lyric, carries with it an expression of emotion, form, and movement that can’t quite be achieved by anything else in this world.
The more I experience music, the more I am convicted of my own desire and passion to use music to change the world for God’s glory. In the back of my mind, I really do see the slight possibility of something like that happening. But I guess that’s ultimately up to God to decide. For the time being, I will continue to praise Him through late night jam sessions in my dorm room and leading worship on Sundays, because I know He can use anything, no matter how small, for His glory.
