I love the opportunity God has given me to use my voice to sing His praises.  I never considered it a "talent" but that is what it makes even more special to me.  He takes a perceived un-talent and uses it for His glory.  You just never know how He will use you.  I have always desired to sing but have never had the sister was always the singer in the family.  I was always casted as the back-up in musicals, never the lead.  The idea of having a mic to my voice terrified me but as I look back at the 5 years singing on praise team, He has taught me and grown me and for that I am so thankful.  I love leading people in worship...

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
    Worship the Lord with gladness;
    come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.

Psalm 100:1-2

Listen to this song - we sang this last weekend and I can't get it out of my head...A Mighty Fortress
