I have taken up the Ukulele this month. I have a show in 4 weeks and plan to use my new toy in our Christmas production (we are traveling to nursing homes and RV parks with a big band show). Sometimes I wonder if I have bitten off a bit much. Here is good news: “God is faithful. He will never let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.” (1 Co 10:13)
Tempted? Yes, tempted. I am frequently tempted to say yes to a ton of stuff, because I AM INVINCIBLE. Who is that crazy man? Invincible? Hardly. I am much too vincible.
What does a vincible dude do? First, I must not be afraid to fail. Much better to try and fail than to live in the pale zone that knows neither ‘great defeat nor great victory’. (Theodore Roosevelt) Second, I must trust in the Living God who is “an ever present help in trouble” (Ps 46:1), and my “hiding place, who surrounds me with songs of deliverance.” (Ps 32:7)
