11 These things command and teach.

12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.  

13 Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.  

14 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.  

15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.  

16 Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.
I Timothy 4:11-16 (NKJV)

Happy May!  2016 continues to be a great year and very much so a growing year for me.  I find myself spending more time with God than I ever have before--but in a way that I've always needed before.  The #MarchIntoGrowth event was awesome and directly impacted my April.

The above passage was referenced in Pastor Mark's message at The Tab this past Sunday titled "You Were Born For This".  As I reviewed the message this evening, it reminded me of moments when I've doubted that God can use me.

But He is using me!  And He desires to use each of us!

There are two things that I am sure of. God has called me to #1 ministry and #2 music.  While this has felt like a quiet year for me musically, I've watched as my every day conversations have transformed into in depth conversations.  And I've been able to share with others what it means to live out a faith walk with Jesus.

The month of April was my literal evidence of my progress in Him (v. 15).    I am reminded to meditate and give myself completely to the Lord.  I hope this passage will remind us all to be more intentional and intensive in our relationship with Jesus.
