"I've got a guy..."

The choir director handed me several pieces of music for an upcoming special service asking if I knew one in particular, or remembered when the other soloists had done them. I didn’t and she indicated that the piece was really intense. In this stack was also a duet and another solo part in a choir number.
My response to all of these?
“No problem”

I didn’t even have to look at the pieces to know that it wouldn’t be a problem.

Because I am that good?

LOL – no, not that.

Because I’ve got a guy. And he is that is that good.

I have a voice teacher that I swear could teach a rock to sing.
He truly believes that anyone can learn to sing, on pitch and in rhythm.

I know that whatever has been handed to me, that I will hand to him and he will know how to get me from where I am to where I need to be to do these songs well.
I love knowing that there is someone who can take a musical challenge issued to me and can get me ready to face it.

And even more than that, I love knowing that I’ve got a guy who can take any challenge facing me and give me the strength to handle it.
I am God’s child. He is my father. He’s my “guy”.
Whatever is given to me, I can place in his hands and be confident that because of His help, His guidance, His power and loving watch care over me, that I will accomplish what's necessary.


"Being confident of this very thing that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:6

Hey Becky! I just realized Janelle had a link to you on your blog - I don't know how long it's been there. I live in the Chicago area now too! We live in Carol Stream. My husband Chris is a PhD student at Wheaton College Graduate School. I wonder how far we are from you. I know if my parents are ever visiting, they'd love to see you!

Love - Katie
