Fishing Faith at a Farmer's Market

Friday's Farmer's Market "Win-Win":


We head down to the Union Church booth at the North Beach Farmer's Market this past Friday night, where we are supposed to play some acoustic music, and there is a large southern rock band playing right across the street. We decided it's not kind to wage a battle of the bands (haha), so we decide to head down the main drag, packed with people, and look for where God might want us to try setting up and playing.


We find some space on the sidewalk, in front of a store that was closed for the night, so we set up and start strummin', drummin', and sangin' some Jesus music. Some folks smiled, a few smirked (well, whaddaya expect? it's Christian music on a public street!), and some gathered around to listen. God had clearly led us to be there that night.....we just needed to be open to "where" He wanted us to be. I told my friends, "This is what it's like to be a missionary. You scope out the field, see what the potential is, and then start sharing Christ wherever and however He leads and opens doors to do so."


And friends, that's what happened. He didn't just want us proclaiming Him at "one" location - but at two! So as Union Church's booth had many visitors asking questions and engaging in conversations about Christ, we were proclaiming His praise and truth through songs just a block down the road! I can imagine that He had some folks walk past and hear our music, then be engaged by the Union Church folks in conversations about Him. And some likely talked with the people at the booth, then walked our way and heard His praise where we were playing.


I'm excited to think of how He used that tapestry to touch some hearts last night! And the BEST part is - He gets ALL the glory so clearly, because we had NO idea what was going to happen when the "uh-oh" of the other band music made a ripple in our plan. But - it was only a step in making GOD'S plan happen! ‪#‎LoveIt‬ ‪#‎FollowHisLead‬ ‪#‎DontGiveUp‬ ‪#‎KeepTheFaith‬ ‪#‎YayGodMoments‬
