Dori: Two things you should know about me before you continue reading:

1. Dori has absolutely no sense of rhythm. 2. Dori cannot sing. At ALL!

I'm not going to lie and say that God suddenly gave me the singing voice or skills of Phil Collins, but I will say that I didn't sound terrible. However, the beauty of my voice, or the lack of it, isn't the point I'm trying to bring across. Because I figured something out that day. …

I discovered that it didn't matter if I had a great voice or not, or if I could play drums or not, because Jesus didn't need those things to use me. If He did, I wouldn't have been up on that stage. Perhaps some popular singer would have been, or a world-famous drummer, or any other number of talented musicians. But they weren't.

I was!

And Jesus used me in spite of my lacks to reach those people that day. He used me to help those kids learn a little more about God. And as a result, I did something I was proud of that day!

I may only have my little drum kit, my little squeak of a voice, my stage fright, and my shaking knees…

…but I know Someone who can make use of them!
