Rejoicing through the pressure

This past Sunday, I was called in to worship as an alternate singer at one of satellite church’s my local church supports. I woke up that morning with a pressure headache that made me want to stay home.

I had planned out my trip ahead of time, but the train I was to take was pulled from the schedule. During the Praise and Worship section of service I felt actually at some points I was going to fall out.

BUT and yes I do know but cancels out all that I just said. I rejoiced all the way through the pressure. My point in all this is to say…many times we allowed the pressures of our days to move us from our God given purposes.

More and more I am learning how to take my SELF out of the way so HE meaning God can use me the way he intended to.

My job is just to obey, and when I am not sure maintain an attitude of gratitude and praise.

My question to you this morning is… Are you rejoicing through the pressure? Or are you staying in your Sinai Dessert only a praise away from your destiny?

Destiny is not a destination its a journey to be enjoyed!
