Calling Is To Sing

How is it that My calling is to sing, when I don't have such a good voice? I absolutely love singing and I feel Gods presence when I sing. I'm 100% sure this is Gods calling on me. The only thing is I don't think I have a very nice voice in order for me to serve In This ministry.

Do you want to sing to God's glory, or do you want to have the preacher say, "And now Sister Victoria will give us a special in song"?

Your answer to this will decide if your calling is truly from God.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Thanks for the good laugh, Cluny.
You men are so funny and come to the point.
I guess she can sing as loud and as much as she chooses in private.
Everyone wants to be a Star.

\\Victoria, God does not always call us to do that which comes easily to us or that to which we excel.\\

For that matter, God doesn't not always call us to do what makes us feel good or "blessed."

What's stopping you from singing to God in private?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Victoria, God does not always call us to do that which comes easily to us or that to which we excel. If you really feel God's call in this then just take all opportunities which come your way and SING. Don't push to be asked all the time - just 'go with the flow' as they say and see what happens.

God speaks to us all differently and He makes His will known - sometimes over a period of time rather than instantly.

In our church we have a young man who does not have a particular good voice but each time he sings (which is just now and again) others are blessed. Go at God's pace

Victoria, if you want to know what God would have you do, look around yourself and see what you are doing right now.

Maybe you merely think your calling is to sing, but you are mistaken.

What you are actually doing right now is God's will for you.

This may not be what you want to hear, but it's the truth.
Glory to Jesus Christ!

Victoria, I think you are called to sing, but you are embarrass to sing because your voice sounds bad I guess.

Remember, Moses had the same problem. He was asked to speak to Pharaoh, but he complained so much that God sent Aaron with him.

You are amazed God asked you to sing because you think He made a mistake knowing your own voice.
Maybe someone else CAN sing BETTER than you. But are they singing to PRAISE GOD or to praise themselves?

Your less prefect voice in PRAISING GOD is better than all the beautiful voices praising themselves.

Those who sing pray twice- St Augustine or another saint

\\I was in a church service where the singer was very unskilled, and missed most of the notes. Yet, at the conclusion of his singing there were very few dry eyes in the congregation\\

In my musical career, I've heard various tear-jerking performances, too.

But it wasn't because the audience was emotionally moved.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

As my high school band director (a devout Christian) used to say, "Everybody's a music critic, and everybody's a theologian."

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Victoria I saw a Gospel singer say God called her to sing and she was not a good singer at all but God improved her voice so she could sing. She became a very popular Gospel singer. What God calls you in service to do for Him He will anoint your ability to do it. Make very sure it's God's call and not merely your desire. God Bless

Well, for building a house, yes you must have the right abilities. But, Victoria, I don't think your voice is dangerous (c: just because it does not meet worldly standards of music people are willing to pay money for >

Jesus says, "Freely you have received, freely give," in Matthew 10:8. If your singing is for worship and loving people, you can sing in church worship or at the bedside of a nursing home resident or someone else . . . wherever God pleases.

But there are ones who require approval, an audience, and money.

Also, no matter what your face looks like, you can love and smile (c: Not all things require professional acceptance!! (c:

As a professional musician, please let me say that piety is no substitute for talent, ability, and technique.

Someone might have a burden to build houses for the homeless (What did Jesus say in Matthew 25?), but if he doesn't know construction techniques, he's not doing anyone any good.

Moses told God that his speech was not good enough (Exodus 4:10). But > "the things which are despised God has chosen" (in 1 Corinthians 1:28). What matters is if we are "making melody in your heart to the Lord." (in Ephesians 5:19)

Worry can make your voice seem ugly, because that worry is ugly ugly ugly!!

But while you are busy with loving God in worship, or loving people by singing to them in a nursing home, you may not realize how beautiful love has you look and sound.

"rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God." (1 Peter 5:3)

If giving a holy message through song is the whole calling, maybe broadening the calling to writing hymns would be satisfying and productive for you.
---Geraldine on 1/17/15

If you sing in the spirit nothing is more beautiful. You are probably your own worse critic. I know I am with art. I knew a lady who had throat cancer and she sang. When she was finished there wasn't a dry eye in the place. I use to sing in a trio til I got thyroid cancer and the surgeon ruined my vocals. I've wondered why God allowed that but there was a reason. Lady use your voice for the Lord.

I was in a church service where the singer was very unskilled, and missed most of the notes. Yet, at the conclusion of his singing there were very few dry eyes in the congregation. The majority were moved by the Spirit moving inside him as he sang.

Yet, a singer's real ministry is to sing to God, not entertain folks. Christian singing is prayer and praise to God, set to music. God expects us to offer Spiritual sacrifices to him.

1Pet 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

See also Psa_50:14, Psa_50:23, Psa_141:2, Heb_13:15-16

Ask God to help you sing to Him.

Interesting quandary.

Have you considered studying voice?

Singing as a calling does NOT require being a soloist, you know. Is there no choir in your church?

BTW, the Christian spiritual life is not based on "feelings".

And if this is really your calling, others will confirm it.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
