CAPTURED MOMENTS

1. Be Faithful and make Jesus the Peak.

  • Be faithful to God's cause which is Redemption and relationship with His people

  • Be faithful to God's cause even when it may not include you having a platform that you want to

  • You may not have the fans that you want to have, at the end of the day be faithful and obedient in joy to the call of God

  • Enjoying God is peak! right?!

  • God is the peak, your artistry is just a vehicle to do so, your artistry is a vehicle to reflect who God is to display Him

  • I feel like artists are so anxious to have platforms to be seen, to be known that they never really experience the full joy that they can have in faithfulness

  • You know, I mean, just faithfully serving the Lord

  • If He gives you an audience of 1K, good. If you get your audience of 10K great.

  • At the end of the day it’s about being locked, synced and being a part of God's cause, His executive plan - what He wants to do, to save the world through Christ, right?!

  • Whether you have that many fans isn’t the the big picture, it doesn't really matter, you know?! Who cares, it’s harsh but, Jesus has to be the peak

  • (As artists we must decide)

2. Be Faithful and make great art.

  • Make good art, that's the other thing

  • Don't make sloppy art, invest in your craft

  • Take time because there's worth in your art

  • Your art deserves attention

  • Your art deserves vision it

  • Your art deserves focus

  • Your art deserves the determination

  • So don't squander the gifts that the Lord have given you

  • Do them well

3. Be Faithful and be pleased with whatever He gives you as a result.
