Proclaiming His Praises

Today is the first day that I lead practice for InterVarsity's worship team.... I'm a bit nervous.  So far it has been a lot more difficult than I expected.  Coming up with songs for a set and then making sure that we have music for the songs I picked has been a bit stressful.  However, I have to keep in mind the real reason that I'm doing this. To sing God's praises!  To use the talents that He has blessed me with to bless Him!  Hopefully all goes well at practice tonight, but whatever happens, we will make a joyful noise to the Lord.

I want to share something that I found in my journal from this summer:
"I am God's chosen. I am precious. I am part of His chosen generation, His royal priesthood, His holy nation. I am one of God's own special people. I am God's special person.  Therefore I must proclaim His praises because He called me out of darkness into His marvelous light!" 1 Peter 2:4,5,9,10
