Wow! I can't believe that I'm back in Winona Lake, rehearsing like crazy with what is soon to be almost 250 other Christian artists for the MasterWorks Festival. After an entire year of thinking, praying and helping to make this festival happen it's so awesome to see it all come together. There's something that God really wants to do here and these past few days I've been reminded of why it was that I quit my job at home and picked up and moved to nowhere Indiana back in November to be a part of this.
God is doing some big things in the hearts of those who have come especially in mine. He has been doing some major healing in my heart which I honestly found to be quite hardened after all that I experienced during the internship. 4 weeks ago I returned to Toronto, with bitterness and anger towards God, about several things but mostly about how nothing about my doing the internship made any sense. I didn't understand why He would have uprooted me only to leave me to deal with disappointment, indecision, depression and a great sorrow. I was not looking fwd to coming back to Indiana to do the MasterWorks opera, even though it was a great opportunity for me musically, but in only 4 days I am aware of how He provided the opportunity to come back so that I would be open to healing. It has only just begun, but I am hopeful that I may leave Winona Lake this time feeling encouraged by all that the Spirit will speak to me and teach me in the next month.
