No more trying to find purpose in ministry. No more looking for fulfillment in people. No more need to build something for God or be a success or feel useful. No more keeping up with the crowd or proving something. No more searching for ways to please people. No more trying to think or reason my way out of difficulties. No more needing approval from the world. It has been a long journey it has taken me most of my life, but I have found what really matters and is only one audience that I need. The only audience that matter is the audience of one. This audience is God. I am still working on having the audience of one, but I know now that I will make it because this is where the joy and peace is found.
“I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done. I will be filled with joy because of you. I will sing praises to your name, O Most High.” (Psalm 9:1-2)
