Yesterday, I had my first experience leading worship. It was a women’s retreat in Dobson, NC and it was the first time I played more songs by other people than original songs that I’ve written. And I didn’t hate it at all!!! I had always said I didn’t want to do that but I really enjoyed it. In fact, some of the songs I did spoke to me more than anything I’ve ever sang before! But anyway. It was truly an amazing day!!! The women there were wonderful. Truly wonderful. A chorus teacher I worked with in high school was there, one of my favorite ladies I never knew was there, my babysitter’s sister and niece were there, and the speaker was outstanding! As far as the music was concerned, I wrote a couple of songs especially for the event, but I also did “10,000 Reasons”, “Oh How He Loves”, “Heaven Song”, and some others. But “Oh How He Loves”. I didn’t have access to an orchestra or a piano or an electric guitar or even percussion. It was just me and my Taylor. And it was a truly amazing experience. I can really lose myself in that song when I’m singing it. It was such a tremendous reminder of God’s love, His presence, and His purpose. And now I am SO looking forward to doing more events like this in the future!
