Renewed Purpose

Last weekend, I received a renewed sense of purpose for this ministry. And even for myself. To make a long story short, I was invited to go along to try out for Canadian Idol, and didn't make it past the second preliminary round. I was given some "constructive" criticism that I didn't really feel was accurate. Needless to say, I let it get me when I really shouldn't have. That same night, I had a concert with a youth group in Winnipeg. I have to say, it was one of my best. During the auditions, I felt very out of my element - during the concert, it was ALL element!! God renewed in me my purpose. My place is not on a TV show that more often than not seeks to glorify one's self. My place is with my guitar, telling people about the love of Jesus. It's where I belong. And I am so thankful for that!
Blessings!

    David, when reading your comments about the "failure" at Canadian Idol as opposed to your success at ministry, it just jumped up and smacked me in the face ... you are a MINISTER! The Holy Spirit has you working effectively in those small-town ministries ON PURPOSE. You will bring much more glory to God, touch many more lives doing what you are doing than you ever would as Canadian Idol! My Dad pastored for 30+ years ... never became what I'd call a "superstar" preacher (his first church was Cut Knife, Sk!) ... but he touched lives ... someone has to go the the small "unglamorous" places ... you're the man to go there. God's richest blessings on your ministry!
