GRATEFUL, PART 1

We're in the month that's centered on being thankful, so I figured it might do me good to dedicate a few posts to recognizing God's blessing in my life as a worship leader. I encourage to jump in the comments and share something you're thankful for!

WRITING SONGS

The majority of the songs I write either aren't very good OR they're not a great fit for my church. That's why I write a lot of them - because it takes awhile to find one that works with what we do on Sundays. But even though just a few make the cut each year, writing songs - specifically worship songs - is one of my greatest joys.

Maybe it's because they're an encouragement to my own heart or maybe it's because I get a rush from searching for that perfect song for corporate worship. I'm not sure why, I just know that I feel abundantly blessed to write songs for church.

In fact, if you want to see me down and discouraged, come hang out when I don't have any songs in the works. IT'S BRUTAL! I don't deserve all the good God has done and songwriting is just one more thing that reminds of His kindness.

SO, WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR?
