Now I am a practicing Catholic, as well as a practing bassist. I've been playing for a while now, and although everyone knows my name, I am never called to play. I am in a struggling band and it hurts, becasue music is my life. I want to teach music, and I seriously believe that this is why I was put on Earth. Anyways, I am so frustrated one day, and I pray, "God please help my music career because this is the reason you put me on this planet." the next day my band kicks me out for another bassist who likes to party more than me.....great but soon after the best guitarist in my school, and probably in town, asks me to be in his band for a gig coming up soon! This player and his band are a jam rock band, and are well known everywhere. Then I get home, and I get a phone call saying that the church band has accepted me into the band! wow all I can say is that God must agree with me, because these gigs are going to jumpstart my music career, and I am so happy I just had to share this with all of you. Just be patient, and things will fall into place.
