Seriously, does anyone else LOVE The Sing Off? Please someone say yes. I really love it so much.
Mostly because Ben Folds is a judge I think... I really like Ben Folds. Especially when he sings The Luckiest. Go ahead and listen. I would listen with you, but it makes me cry. Every single time. I waited in the back of the church with my daddy while my bridesmaids walked down the aisle to this song more than 3 years ago.
Anyway... The Singoff. So good right?! If you haven't seen it yet, it's an all a cappella singing contest and it blows me away. People are so amazingly talented! The winners from last season are a group called Committed. They are seriously unbelievable. But what I think was so cool about them is that they were confident in their gifts and they used them for the glory of God. Even though they were on tv and it was risky for their popularity. Also cool to me was how much everyone respected them for it. They definitely made an impact for Jesus by fearlessly using the talents He has given them.
Today I pray that I would...
#1 be able to decipher what it is God is calling me to do for him.
#2 do it well!
#3 give him the glory. Fearlessly.
"In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly."
And if he gave you an incredible voice, try out for season 4 of The Sing Off. Do it.
