“What to do, what to do? Latrine! The creature from the tower!”
I only wanted to take the first part of that quote, but by giving it in its entirety, I thought more would recognize it. So, over the last few weeks, I have found joy in the littlest things. I feel like my life is taking direction toward that, too. But I’m somewhat torn. Here’s what and why:
-I love teaching somebody something that they don’t know and see them improve because of me. I can make a difference and see it! It is so much fun to watch!
-I like performing songs I have written. I opened with a friend at the Coffeehouse my campus puts on once a month or so tonight, and I absolutely loved performing the song I helped write. It was a fun song in general, and I was one of two who wrote it and made it sound so awesome!
-I am intrigued by writing pieces for band or orchestra. I’ve had ideas swirling in my head that won’t do for a guitar and a drum. It needs more. I just don’t know how, yet.
-I feel like ministry of some sort would be fulfilling, as well. I love sharing the gospel. Passing on information that I value so highly? That’s the part I like most about teaching, as well.
As you can see, my life cannot follow all of these paths. Right now, I don’t know where I’m headed. I mean, I’m majoring in Music Education, so that road is the one I’m on at the moment. And I love it, so I do believe I’ll graduate with that. But what next? Band teacher? Music therapist? Ministry? Writing music? Performing?
So, I’ve decided not to worry about it. I have all these passions, strewn out in every-which-way. I don’t know if I can encompass all of them at once, but they are all mostly related, right? But I do know and I trust that God will take care of everything for me. He will tell me where to go and what to do. For now, I’ll just keep doing what I’ve been doing and continue listening to what God has to say about it all.
It makes me laugh, and I’m sure God is laughing, too. But God is the center of my life, and I will do anything to praise his name and worship him all of my days. I guess I’m just writing my thoughts at the moment.
Peace, Love, and Praise!
