My two favorite voices…

I missed my friend. It had been a long time since I heard from the Lord!!! I kept telling Him, “Lord, it has been so long since I heard from you”… I had been travelling quite a bit, so I guess I was well occupied!!!! Now that I’m back home, and back to mundane routines….. I was missing the company of my friend, my Lord!!!

One afternoon when Jeev was home for lunch I was playing some of my favorite singers and singing along. When I was in college one of my favorite singers used to be Mariah Carey. When I got saved, all her cd’s which I had dutifully collected over the years went straight to the trashcan!!! 😀 Nobody told me to do that!!! I just felt that the lyrics of her songs were not in alignment with the things of the Lord!!! And so, it went right to the trashcan!!! However, I truly think that she is one of the best voices I have ever heard…. one of the best voices that the Lord has created: she holds the Guinness records for the best vocal-range and stuff…. She is hard to emulate…. if u can emulate her…. boy… that’s good!!!

And another favorite gospel artist whom I think has an instrument in his voice is David Phelps. These two folks are my favorite voices, though I don’t listen to the former anymore!!! I was bringing the roof down with my energy and my louddddd singing!!!! 😀 My husband and son were glued to their seats …. I wonder what they were thinking!!! Lol!!! But I had no intentions to stop. I like Mariah Careys version of ‘O holy night’ …. n David Phelps’ version too…. I was singing at the top of my voice…. with all my energy!!! And right then came the still small voice…..

The Lord spoke, “If this is your full POTENTIAL, do u think you have given your full potential to Me?” In between the song, I broke down…. God’s ways of catching us right at the unexpected moment and the unexpected place…!!!!! My volume went down…. and I got thinking!!!! When was the last time I sang with all my strength for the Lord???? Well……. I don’t think I ever have…. !!!!

‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; Luke 10:27

Strength is an aspect I haven’t much thought about….. perhaps I should!!!! Very often, we give our best strength to the things of the world… and to the world!!! But when it comes to the things of the Lord, we give much lesser than our full ‘POTENTIAL’. The word Potential took on a whole new meaning for me, from that day….. !!!!

Yes!!! God has given you something that can be used to build His Kingdom…. Are you using it??? Are you using it to your FULL POTENTIAL???? Keep pushing yourself AND YOUR KIDS to be better each time, for the LORD first, and then the world!!! Not just with our talents, folks, even our everyday duties are just as important!!!

Coz’ as C.T Studd rightly said, “ Only one life ’twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last”!!!

Reaching Full Potential Speedometer Tracking Goal

Reach your full potential, for God!!! Yes, It’s in your hands!!!

Happy Thanksgiving season to all!!!! 🙂
