When Daniel and I were little, we used to play outside with our sister from sun up to sun down. We were very fortunate to have people placed in our lives who encouraged our imaginations. Many days were filled with voyages to new lands, reading in the trees, and new recipes made from berries and other “appetizing” ingredients. Outside was our domain, and the possibilities for adventure were endless. We could be anything we wanted to be, so we were! With no limits, we freely became pirates, and mermaids, and explorers, and sometimes simply veterinarians or doctors. We took our roles very seriously, and play was our fulltime job. As we got older, our imagination muscles continued to be honed, but they took a slightly different turn. Suddenly these imaginative worlds collided with real life practicality, and our ability to imagine turned into our ability to dream. We dreamt of big lives! From being on TV, to floating in the Dead Sea in Israel, to moving to far away countries to preach the gospel and see miracles happen! Did all of our dreams come to pass the moment they popped up in our hearts? Not all, and not right away. There have been equal parts pain and joy in this life. But the ability to dream came anchored in hope. And this particular hope never disappoints! Dreaming brought about storylines that moved our hearts. Those storylines turned into finding notes that worked on the piano and guitar. Those notes turned into melodies. Those melodies turned into song. And those songs turned into worship.
Taking these steps into the world of music that sings of Yeshua (Jesus) didn’t start with an EP, or gigs, or recognition. It didn’t even really start with an instrument or a voice. Well, I guess it did start with a voice. His voice. Calling us to picture our backyard as another world. Gathering with us the different grasses and flowers to make the perfect stew. Reading with us as we used branches to lay our heads and long tree limbs to rest on high in the sky. We thought it was play. We thought it was fun. We thought it was just us being kids. And it was. But it was also so much more than that. We were being given the tools that would make this next step in our musical journey feel familiar; it was the heart of our Father, calling us to dream.
“Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for His miraculous power constantly energizes you.”
Ephesians 3:20 TPT
