I’ve learned so much this past summer about how the Lord can teach us so many things - things that we never even thought we could learn - and constantly mold us, but only if we allow Him to. I’ve learned how to open my heart to Jesus in everything that I do, whether it’s running sound for Bread of Stone or setting up and tearing down, and it makes this life that much MORE beautiful!
For example...getting married and traveling with Bread of Stone, I thought I would maybe help like a stage hand would or even tune guitars since I play guitar too. But instead, I ended up having to run sound for the band - which is something I had never done before, nor did I know anything about it - my very first event with them as Jason’s wife! And since then, I’ve completely fallen in love with sound engineering!
It was something completely unexpected for me, but in that way God has shown me how His thoughts are higher. We just have to be willing and open to put our hands to whatever He puts in front of us and to learn things that are maybe out of our comfort zone.
My favorite verse is Hebrews 11:1 which says, “Now faith is being sure of what you hope for, and certain of what you do not see.” That’s the most amazing thing about faith - still moving forward and believing when you don’t see the whole picture, or even just the next step!
I’m so thankful for everything Jesus has taught me this year and can’t wait to see what’s next!
