Last year, God began using me to start a ministry called TOAM (Teens on a Mission). As I began writing the curriculum for this new ministry, God also began giving me song ideas and melodies. As I received these divine revelations, I began being obedient, sitting down and writing them down. I would find that many times within 5-10 minutes the songs would be written and finalized. That?s how I know they were directly from God.
As I began practicing and writing these songs, I felt that God was burdening my heart to use these to impact the lives of children and young adults. For, as God was molding me and breaking me, he impressed upon my heart the passion to bring back the love for scripture and the memorization of scripture passage. Working with youth for as long as I have, I found in my teaching that the average student knows about 2-4 scriptures from memory. Of those, many know the universal ones that even an unbeliever knows. With that knowledge, I knew that something had to be done. That?s when I began to ask God what exactly His purpose and plans were for these songs. Slowly, he began giving me stories and other ideas that I began using to create a program that was not only fun and exciting, but that truly taught the word of God and the plan of salvation.
If you were to ask me a few years ago if I would have ever foreseen myself doing this in the future, I would have said your crazy. However, the more I grow closer to God, the more I am trusting Him and letting Him use me for what He wants me to do. Though I will never be perfect, it is my hope that through the live I live and the things I do, all would see Christ in me and come to know Him personally.
