“Always stay learning and praying that God use your gift in a mighty way. Its okay to be out of tune with the world, but lets always be challenged to stay in tune with HIM. The crowd might not always clap, but God always loves a heavenly tune from the right place; in tune or out of tune.” - Bernard Height
