I stood on the other side of the auditorium door, just steps away from the moment that stirred in my heart just weeks before. I had seen the flyer advertising open auditions, and I wanted to be in the school play more than anything.
There was just one small problem. This wasn’t a play. It was a musical, and I couldn’t sing. At least, that’s what someone told me once, and once was all it took for the words to stick.
I thought I’d moved beyond that self-defeating thought. For the past three weeks, I’d planned and practiced a ballad taught to me by a family friend. A ballad I would be expected to sing by myself in front of total strangers.
I committed to follow through, to open the door and step into whatever happened next. But now, so close to that moment, the doubt came flooding back like a raging storm set to destroy.
I am honored to be sharing the rest of today's devotion on author Kelly O'Dell Stanley's website. AND, she's hosting a giveaway of my book, Over It. Conquering Comparison to Live Out God's Plan. (I'm also adding a special gift - a cute hippie bag handmade by women in India. Pictured below!)
