There are many things that I enjoy doing, but the thing that I enjoy the most would have to be playing music. I love the feeling that I get the chance to sit down and strum my guitar. I feel like every stressful thought just clears my mind, and I am able to relax and escape from reality. However, as good as it feels to play music, the best feeling comes when I play at church. Playing and singing for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is an amazing feeling. No words can explain the satisfaction I feel when I lead worship at my church.
I do not get paid to play and sing at church, but if I could do that for a living, I can guarantee that I would have the most rewarding job imaginable. I would love to have that opportunity because I come from a rough family background, and I would use music to reach the hurting people in the church. I would teach music to help build up new worship leaders while simultaneously helping them grow in faith.
