Awkward moment

fly-pitHave you ever had an embarrassing moment?  Mine was at the Summer Concerts outdoor event at Horizon Valley Center a couple years ago.  I was super stoked to play with Ricky, producer for the Rock Everlasting album, and also to share the stage with Ian Galleghar and the Dance Floor Prophets.  I love outdoor evangelism, it’s so amazing to watch God work on people’s hearts.  And I like the loud sound systems too!  So I get up there, begin a beautiful song, and this fly starts buzzing me.  It went in my nose, buzzed my armpit, my eyes… I totally flubbed.  I actually had to start the song over. Howwwww embarrassing!  Everything turned out alright but I was humbled.  And at the end of the day, after all the great bands… it was the clown with the Gospel Puppet Show who truly made an impact.  SO many kids raised their hands and wanted to know Jesus!  A good humbling is necessary now and then, to keep things in perspective.  God is in control, and He will always do good things, no matter if we flub, or not.  And at the end of the day… I was totally encouraged to keep on keepin’ on, despite when there are flies in my armpit.
