Living Your Dream – Part Two…
August 5, 2006
The last time I wrote I was speaking about auditioning for one of the choir’s at my church. Although I didn’t get placed in the Grammy Award winning choir, I did get placed in The Bishop’s Choir. I found out that this was the choir that God wanted to place me in.
There are some things you need to know before I go further. First of all, for those of you who do not know, The Potter’s House church’s pastor is T.D. Jakes. He has been featured on Time Magazine’s cover in 2001. Second, you need to understand that I am Caucasian. Third, my church is a very culturally diverse church; however, over half of the people who attend are African American. Finally, the choir that I was placed in was all African American. So, as you can imagine, people noticed me right away. So much so that one time I was in Big Lots (which is 10 miles away from my church) and a member (who is Hispanic) said, “You sing in the choir at The Potter’s House.” Of course, I said yes, but as you can tell, people did notice me.
Well, the director of The Bishop’s Choir is such a godly woman. She has drive, a fire in her belly, but most of all — she is anointed by God. She is taking the choir to new levels. I’m getting excited just talking about it.
But this choir — The Bishop’s Choir — has so much love in it! Not one time have I ever felt isolated, separated or shunned. These godly men and women of God love each person individually. But again, that’s why I came to this church that God sent me to. The people are warm, friendly, and loving. Now, don’t get me wrong, you still have a few people who don’t even want to sit near me, but that’s okay — I love them no matter what as they are God’s child. So — I’m in the right choir.
But living my dream — how does this relate? I’ll tell you more….later.
