Let me just say that there are many times that I feel inadequate, particularly in the music arena.  I know I can sing, but there is still so much I don’t know.  There is so much about singing I can improve on;  so much about music I wish I knew but don’t. 

I am surrounded with unbelievable musicians and sometimes it just makes me feel inadequate.

In some regards, the inadequacy feeling is good.  It pushes me to learn more.

My role as a worship leader at Sandals is different than those at other churches.  At most churches the worship leader chooses the set list, arranges the songs, and is in charge of the musicians.  Although I sometimes have input in the songs we sing, I don’t do any of those things on a regular basis.  In a way its kind of nice.  I can focus my attention toward the congreation and concentrate on how God wants me to lead.   

Downfalls:  There are just some limitations on leading when I can’t necessarily lead the band as well.

But I am being pushed to grow in my musicianship which I appreciate.  Tonight I am leading one of the songs for band practice.  I mean, I am running the rehearsal for this particular song.  I am excited to have been given the chance to do this but also a little nervous. 

Good nervous.
