Has it been almost a year since I returned to performing at Open Mics?
I don't think the folks who run the event have noticed I have not been able to return since the end of January.
“Let us not see today's troubles as a reason to give up; let us see them as an opportunity for God to deliver.”
― Dillon Burroughs, Hunger No More: A 1-Year Devotional Journey Through the Psalms
Not having Wednesdays off, or not having the time or money to go on the few times I did, kept me from returning to the stage.
Not having Sundays off, or the time to go the few times I did, kept me from going to church.
I found both of these situations frustrating but no reason to give up on either.
I believe that God will return me to the stage and other speaking opportunities in His good time and I have had the chance to watch podcasts of sermons from 2nd Baptist and Lakewood Church through out the year.
Don't let the fact that your troubles, or your work schedule, or lack of funds, may keep you from doing things you want to do...trust that things will change for the better and when they do take advantage of the opportunity presented to you to the best of your ability.
