Blind Faith (8/2014):
The time has finally come, no turning back, just a great leap of faith. I am stepping out and moving to Nashville. Where I will begin my journey to pursue a life long dream as an independent contemporary Christian artist. It’s so weird to say that out loud!!!
I know what most of you are thinking?!?!?!? Do you know how many people are out there trying to make it!!!! Before you go any further let me stop you there. YES, I know exactly how many people are out there trying to make it and those who have and have not made it. Reality is the odds are against me, but God never said to live our lives by reality, “We live by faith, not by sight” 2 Corinthians 5:7.
I don’t know where this next step in life will take me, but I do know that God will be by my side as I walk into it, regardless of the outcome he will direct me into that path I am meant to be on. My hopes in all of this and these blogs are to encourage you to never give up on dreams, no matter how small or large they are.
My journey didn’t begin with this move, it started a long time ago. As a very shy and introverted 13-year-old young girl, who only wanted to make a positive difference in this world through the talent I had been given. Since then I’ve been striving to bring a sense of sincerity and purity to my performances, one that will minister to your mind and spirit. A way to always inspire!! I must also add that this journey has not been a solo act, there have been many wonderful people that have helped me along the way. Without them, I would not be where I am today, which is one day closer to making my dreams a reality.
For the past two years, I have felt like my life has been on hold. I have watched and stood by my family as we watched the ending of a very long battle. My father’s passing was a very bittersweet part of our life story, but one that has forever changed who I am. Watching a loved one suffer from anything is hard, but when you ultimately know the outcome it changes a person’s perspective on life. Not to mention when you have to go through it with both your parents. Shortly thereafter my father’s passing my mom become deathly ill, and we almost lost her. The story there has taken on a whole life of its own, but thankfully through the grace of God, she has been given a second chance at life. I say ALL this to truly say LIFE is a gift and it is precious as well as short. It should never be taken for granted. NO regrets, no holding back, stepping out on faith and living the life you were meant to live!!! Love the ones you love, Live the life you were meant, and don’t waste time on meaningless things.
