Last Monday morning, I prayed and asked God to place someone in my path to minister/witness to that day. Later that same evening, an old friend (who I used to make secular music with before I got Saved) called, asking if I still did photography (little do he know, God had him to reach out to me about photography so he can be witnessed to). I told him, "No", and I went on to explain how I'm Saved now, I'm in ministry and currently working on Christian Rap music. My friend was so shocked/amazed/excited about my transformation, he said "WOW" and "THAT'S CRAZY" at least 20 times before our convo ended. The joy that came over HIM, gave ME joy. Then I let him know that if God did it for ME, He can do it for him.
We also discussed music for a bit. I was able to open up to him about me doing Christian music now, and how I no longer have to feel bad afterwards about doing what I love. Music is my deepest passion. I turned my back on God for music many times in the past. But God revealed to me that I don't have to choose between Him or music, I can just use my gift for HIS glory! After we got off the phone, I just felt like I was ontop of the world (lol). I understand what Jesus meant when He said, "My meat is to do the will of him that sent me" (John 4:34). The satisfaction that comes from being used by God is parallel to none other.
I share this praise report with you (reader) to encourage you to seek to be used by God. I prayed that God would open a door for me to witness to someone, and He did just that (God is that practical when it comes to prayer). Let's build the Kingdom, one soul at a time. #FishersOfMen
