I have developed a love for Kickstarter. There is something about helping someone have a dream come true that I just love. I got hooked on Kickstarter because a show that I have always loved started a Kickstarter to get a movie made. (Veronica Mars). I was able to become a backer and the movie is in the process of being made, it felt amazing to support something that I had hoped for.
My hubby loves Kickstarter as well. He has backed two different board games that we hope to play with our boy some day. Robot Turtles, a game that will teach our son the basics of computer programming and a game called Kings of Israel which should help our boy understand the Old Testament a bit more.
I have some friends who are amazing at building websites, programs, etc. A while ago I was talking to one of them at an event. He mentioned that they were building a website called Jumpkick which helps people to find Kickstarter projects that they may want to support. Well, the website finally launched earlier this week. I excitedly went and checked it all out.
While browsing I saw a graphic for a “Rising Star” (now “Overachiever”) that had the tagline, “I wrote 10 brand new songs with scripture woven into the melodies. I need your help to record & share them. Let’s make music together!” It was for an artist named Ellie Holcomb. Someone whom I had never heard of. I clicked on the graphic and was led to her Kickstarter page. I watched her video and fell in love with what I saw.
I quickly went to youtube to try to listen to some of her other music. The best way that I can describe what I heard was that it was balm to my tired and weary soul. Honestly, I haven’t been doing well lately, I am tired, my relationship with God has not been where I want it to be and I needed to hear Biblical truth. Her music offered that, constantly reminding me of who God is. It was an amazing time of worship listening to her music and connecting with God.
Some people could say that it is all a coincidence. I firmly believe that this is God working out a lot of insignificant details (Kickstarter, Jumpkick, Ellie Holcomb) to bring me hope and peace and a worshipful heart this past Monday night. God is so good and He wanted to get my attention. He did. God is working out all the insignificant details of our lives. He is so good.
