I am a happily married mother of three from a small town in Kansas who was unexpectantly granted a gift of writing and song about 4 years ago...just three years after I began singing at my Catholic Church. God has accomplished in me, what I considered impossible---which is, the courage to sing for audiences, the ability to write and play my music even though I don't know how to play the piano and have no formal music education, the courage to speak the thoughts He has placed on my heart through His Word and Spirit, and the strength to keep trying...against all the odds. Never give up on what you believe God is calling you to do. Walk on through the tough times...when you feel you have no support....when you feel you are financially unable...when you feel alone in your beliefs...when you feel that God is silent. Once, God was silent for three long days. Perfectly silent. The tomb was quiet. There were no trumpets or harps or lyres or voices singing songs of gladness or victory. In fact, things looked pretty bad. It appeared as though God had failed. Still, there was a plan...a plan that God knew all along. Trust Him to know the plan He has for your life. Trust Him enough to hold your head up high and walk through persecution, just like Jesus did. Trust Him to do what is best for you...not the easiest. When things look hopeless, or uncertain, and you are feeling that there couldn't possibly be a good answer in sight, remember the silence of the tomb, and then the glorious victory that followed. There was, indeed, a plan! Walk on towards the prize of eternal life. God bless you all. ~ Elizabeth.
