My Dreams They Are a Changin...3
I have recently found that God makes more of an impact on my life than I recently thought.
I will soon be 16 and its a big time right now. I am learning to drive and looking for jobs and becoming more mature in myself and in God. During this maturity time, I have been singing since I was a little girl with my daddy up on the stage in church. Since then I have been singing in church and at home and anywhere I am.
I always wanted to be on American Idol. I saw this year that I was in the age limit. I was so excited. I couldn't wait!
Then I started praying. I prayed day and night about it to see what God wanted me to do. Then Wednesday July 9th, God spoke to me through my wonderful Momma Amie. She talked to me and made me think about my feelings and about my dreams. It was like God saying "Kaitlyn, really think about what you want to do. Really think about what your doing and why your doing it. "
I talked it out to myself and realized that I was planning on American Idol because it was my easy way out. It was the easy way out of doing what God wanted me to do. He wants me to sing for Him and share his love but American Idol is not the way God would want me to go. I saw that I didn't want a million people screaming for me because I was pretty or up on a stage. I want a million people screaming for me because they saw God through my music and that God did something for them through my music. I want them happy that they saw God through me.
God has changed my dreams! Yes its harder but God does all things for good. I also find myself realizing that God has been showing me who true friends are. I have recently lost friends I thought were true friends. I find that there is loss of drama and stress with keeping friends that weren't good influences on me. God makes changes for the good, not for the bad.
Jeremiah 29:11 - "I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future." That verse has impacted my life a lot. It's changed my perspective on God, Life and Love. Its made life easier and happier.
A little bit about me: I am Kaitlyn. I love singing. I love writing (Which is why I am here). I hope what I write shows just how much God can make a difference in your life.
