More From Jenny Calvert

April 9, 2019 by Jenny Calvert (Texas, USA)

When I was young and just starting out in college, I was uncertain of exactly where God was leading me. Almost immediately, a door opened for me to major in music, so I began a voice major with a piano minor. I enjoyed music very much and went on to be a Church musician, pianist, organist, choir director, and soloist. I also worked with children in public schools for band, choir, and solo competitions.

But as I aged, my voice left me. I could no longer sing, but God opened another door for me. I rekindled a secret love that I had for writing. God has opened doors to allow me to spread God's message without having to use my voice. No matter what age we are, I think God will use us as long as we are His willing servants.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
