Okay Enough for Jesus.

Day 17: What is the thing you most wish you were great at?

I wish I was an excellent musician.  I love to sing and play instruments.  Whenever I look across my room and see my guitar sitting neatly against the wall, whenever I touch the smooth strings of my ukulele, whenever I sit at the bench of my keyboard, delight flutters in my heart.  Music always brings my heart joy.

Unfortunately, I am not naturally a musician.

Let me clarify.  When I practice, I improve.  I can play the guitar decently.  I'm working on ukulele more and more each day.  I'm okay at all of these things.

I often have the opportunity to lead worship.  It's a wonderful experience to get to sit at the feet of my Creator and play music next to my brothers and sisters.  It's so sweet.

But I always wish that music came more naturally to me.  I wish I had a better voice.  I would love to be a "great" musician, in talent more than fame.  No, I would never want to be a famous musician, but I would love to be great at it.

It's alright though.  I'm okay at music, and if that's okay enough for Jesus, then it's okay enough for me.     

What do you most wish you were great at?
