I Am A Rock, I Am An Island

Right now I am searching for God's infinite wisdom and guidance. Oh, and a little peace would be wonderful!

I am so grateful for the people God has put into my life to support and pray for me. People I have know for a lifetime, and people I have never personally met. That alone floors me. Wow. I have always been someone who prays for others, but knowing that people you don't even know are praying for you is quite a humbling experience. Amazing, and inspiring, but humbling.

It is so funny, because I have been in the marketing business most of my life, and have been told I am quite good at it. But when it comes to marketing myself I fall short. I am not a boastful person, and I feel that if I am telling everyone about ME it is bragging.  How do I send off a CD to a record label? Is it offputting to send a CCM artist a request online? (not in front of everyone)

I know that if this is what He wants me to do, it will happen, but I also know I can't just sit around and wait for it. Can I?

I have been listening for God's voice, but I think I am getting in the way.  Please pray that I can get out of the way and let Him do His work.


  1. Hi Christy,

    I think you have to be on the way for God to do his stuff. It has to be through you... Incidentally I am in marketing too so I can so associate with what you are saying ... I will pray for you : )

  2. Christy, first, thanks for enabling the comment section:) Now I can communicate. As a fellow songwriter, I know how you feel about trying to market yourself. Personally, I just enjoy the creative process but not trying to sell myself. I've written and recorded an entire collection of songs and performed them extensively, but have never really tried at all to pitch my songs to others.
    But I'm glad to have connected to another Christian singer/songwriter. I'd suggest you keep trying to market yourself any way you feel comfortable, and in the meantime you need to build a platform.
    Meet your newest follower. I hope you'll swing by and visit me too. Company is always welcome at my place:)

  3. Thanks for sharing your honest feelings. Inspiring.

  4. This is the first time I have come across your blog and I did like it a lot!

    Creative development always takes a lot of time and effort, you just have to believe in yourself and move on!
