First picked up a guitar at the age of 11. As I sat one day in church, 15 years old, a prophet picked me out of a crowd of a couple 100 people. She called me up and told me she had a msg for me from God 😳
Now what you gotta understand is that this was my first time ever going to church. So I was freaked out and slightly pissed off cause this lady was embarrassing me in front of all the girls from VG.
Any way … she went on to tell me that (without knowing me from bar of my soap my friends) God was showing her a musician. She asked me if i played music. I then thought she had gotten the wrong dude and this msg was for somebody else because at the time I wasn’t really INTO music but more into sport …
But then she dug and pulled out a memory that reminded me I had played guitar when I was eleven for like 6 months. She then told me that God wants me to pick up guitar again because God is going to use me in the music industry! 😳
Now what you must understand is at that time I had ZERO desire to be a musician. I was into sports and tryna be cool. Being a musician often means playing covers at bars. Its not like a dream I could actually visualise, given the town I was from, my immediate surroundings, and my friends.
But I went home, slightly freaked out that God had sent a msg for me and it made no sense but still I wanted to obey. Called my mother up, told her, “mae, God says I need a guitar.” 😂
A few months later, after my mom had saved up enough money she went and bought me a guitar. I look back at that day and I actually am left a little speechless. The lesson in this story for me is that sometimes you just feel LIFE/GOD or just your spiritual side pulling you towards something, almost encouraging to dive in … do just that. Dive in. Life is too short and you will never know until you?? TRY!
