It’s Not About the Flute

My book “Finding Your Grace Place” is about to be officially released and once it does my job becomes to let people know it exists.  On my own, I’m not very comfortable with telling the world “Hey, Everyone, I wrote a book.”

But as I was sitting in church this past Sunday, the Lord made me realize that the message inside “Finding Your Grace Place” is not mine.  It’s His message and He just asked me to be the one to write it down.  It’s not about me.  Therefore, I’m promoting His message and so I just need to get over any anxiety I have about it and get the job done.

Imagine yourself being a flute in a symphony orchestra.  No one listens to a symphony and walks away saying “that flute did an amazing job!”  No.  They say the flute player was outstanding or the music was beautiful.

The Lord is the flute player and I’m just the instrument that desires to be used by Him for His glory.  The music is the message.  It’s not about the flute.

Is there something on your heart that you know has been placed there by the Lord?  Don’t hold back in fear of being seen as self-promoting.  It’s not about the flute.  It’s not about me.  It’s not about you.  It’s about the master musician and the beautiful music that the world needs to hear.  Allow yourself to be used by Him.

Whatever it is.  Get it done.
