Dream, Love and Sing With All Your Heart: Embrace Your Passion

singwithpassionjulene

Dream, love and sing🎀 with all your heart…I’m gearing up for our Spring musical showcase at school. We’ve been practicing our vocals & singing dynamics since January & it all culminates to a show where each of us selected a song that reflects our heart.πŸ’– Mine is Unconditionally by Katy Perry mixed with my original. I first heard the song on Tyler Perry’s The Passion last year & love the message in that context- how God who is love gave His life for us & poured out His all to pursue relationship with us. He’s been teaching me about unconditional love & setting others above myself, how we can show the world true love when we love with all our heart like He did.

He’s also been teaching me how sometimes we’re called to do things we’re not as passionate about for a greater reason- for me that’s singing. I LOVE songwriting & singing for fun but often get bored with just singing and the idea of making it a career alone so I’ve found ways to incorporate it into my speaking events & a theatrical story I’m writing & had to step out of my comfort zone to perform in person a few years ago. Miranda Nelson of The Elisha Revolution (they’ve been having nightly Fire and Glory services for a year that are fireπŸ”₯) inspired me with a message on how when you step out in obedience to God even in areas you’re not excited or passionate about He will give you the passion- especially for the broken & hopeless people we are meant to impact with Love- that has been my motivation when my passion waned.

I’ve spent the past year taking weekly vocal lessons & it has been stretching and challenging- in a good way. I’ve discovered more of myself, more about the spiritual & healing power of music especially in classes at CFNI & more of God’s heart. The bottom picture is me singing a medley of Emeli Sande’s Read All About It & Bethel’s Great Are You for our Winter Showcase. I want to encourage you to step out into the unfamiliar & sing with all your heart because you might be surprised at how fun it will be & how close to God’s love you’ll feel.πŸ’πŸ½πŸ’ž Stay tuned for my music merged w/ inspiring stories in the way of a great dreamer Walt Disney…🌠

Dream. Hope. Love.πŸ’ž That’s what we’re made for…We can have a new beginning and have the freedom to dream again no matter where we’ve been because we find a new purpose in our Creator – we’re part of His awesome dream and He’s the greatest Dreamer of all.🌳

Our hope is forever because there’s more to life than what we see here and now – we’re eternal because He lives. We can love boldly and be secure in the one who is Love because everyone was created by Him and is trying to find their way back to where they belong. I’m so thankful for new starts the greatest Love of all gives us each and every day so we can Dream, Hope, Love, forever… (lyrics in the pic above from a song I’ve been writing πŸ“πŸŽ€)
