Read: 1 Corinthians 12:4-7
Years ago Dave and I were involved in a group of young married couples at our church. One evening the group decided to visit the older folks from church and sing with them. Now, I am not a song leader. I can sing, but I don’t lead singing. But for whatever reason, the gentleman who usually led the songs asked me to do it.
I said yes. After all, maybe I am a song leader and I just don’t know it yet. How exciting! I have always wanted to be a singer. So, we begin. The first house went all right, but I was jiggly on the inside. The second house went all right, but my insides were getting more jumbly and I was having trouble thinking. By the fourth house, I could no longer remember the beginning notes of the hymns, the words were a blur on the page and I froze. I quietly turned to the gentleman who had invited me to lead and asked him to take over.
You see, I am not put together to lead singing. I love to sing, but leading is a completely different ballgame. I’m glad to know that about myself, but finding it out was a scary event.
How about you? What have you tried only to realize it wasn’t your thing? What would you like to try?
