someone said to me early on that you have to stay in touch with the love of doing it. it can’t be about fame and money and all that. if you stay in touch with the joy and fulfillment, time and the world fall away, and there’s nothing but the music. that will lead you where you need to go, and the rest will take care of itself. if you get rich and famous, and you hate the music, then you haven’t done anything. that’s a special kind of misery.

stepping out.

it’s always scary to step out in faith not knowing what is around the corner.  in the past month, our family has made the decision to step out in many different ways.  we are currently on the road for the next six weeks in support of an awesome organization - union gospel mission.  however before we left nashville to hit the road, we had to make some BIG decisions.  in the end, we decided to say goodbye to nashville, the only city our family has known, and step out in faith seeing where God is going to lead us over the next couple months.  we may not know where we’re going to land, but we know that God is in control and holds our plan and story in His hands.  as scary as this time is in our lives, it has also been the most exciting and most intimate time we’ve had with God.  He definitely uses these moments of uncertainty to lean on Him and trust that He is in control!  we may think we have control at times in our lives, but we don’t and that’s a lie that we tell ourselves.  we never have control of anything, it is always in God’s hands!

"many plans are in a man’s heart, but the counsel of the Lord will stand." - proverbs 19:21

for more information on where we will be performing over the next few weeks, visit my website.  we would also really love your prayers as we lean on Christ and seek Him for guidance as we decide where God would have us plant our feet for this next season of our lives.  we can’t wait to see what HE is going to do!!!
