“I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify Your name forever.” – Psalm 86:12
If you could do anything in this life, beyond what you think is “possible”, what would it be?
I used to answer that question with, “Become a famous music artist, travel, and play shows.” That was literally all I wanted to do.
The thrill of the stage, the lights, and the pounding of the music. Having people in the crowd below you shouting your lyrics and being moved by what you created. It’s adrenaline-inducing and addicting. To be known as your music and identified with your ability and praised for it.
And then, life shifts that perspective.
In the grand scheme of things, music will always be a part of who I am. But it’s not my identity. I needed to learn that when I faced my surgery and recovering in the months after. That need to be known as my ability was washed away, replaced with a new identity — my worth in Christ.
