Why are you doing this?

My ministry has been challenged. I was told that I am doing all of this just so I can be rich and famous and hog all the glory for myself. I'm here to say that is not true! I know that God has a plan and a purpose for my life. I know He has great things for me. I also know that if I tried to do it all by myself, I would fail miserably. If I were seeking fame and glory, trust me, I would have tried the mainstream market. There is a lot more money there. I have decided to seek God. And God has given me the desire of my heart. I have always wanted to be a full-time musician, and now I have that. But not because I was seeking it for myself. I was seeking God, and now He has given this to me - an abundant life filled with music. Seek first God and agree with Him, and He will give you the desires of your heart! I'll talk more on this next time, because there is another side to this.
Blessings!

    :)David, I know that it is difficult to do what God calls us to do. You can be assured that following Jesus will be challenging because, as we know, God loves us but the devil hates us. God is reading your motives and your heart and in the end, He is judging your motivation. Keep your eyes on Jesus and He will lead you and guide you...be at peace and rejoice when you are falsely accused and know that only the Father's opinion counts!

    Hey, it is a good thing to be challenged, unless the challenge is coming from a nasty place, like jealousy or just a desire to wound and hurt....then choose to fall into the Lord's great big arms and be comforted... what the enemy means for evil, God will turn around and use for good, so be encouraged and pray for those who despitefully use you and say all manner of things against you for the Lord's Name's Sake. You are wonderful and in the palm of His Hand.

    :love:SonnyD, you have felt the storm of buffeting that comes from "FF's" nasty little spear. Remember the last song in the concert that we used to do "It is well with my soul..." is a good thing to remember that sentiment even though the boat gets to rockin' in the waves...Ilove you, my son, but God's love is much, much bigger than mine!You are in our Father's Hands, Hip-Hip-Hooray!!!!
