After special-ordering it brand new, and then owning and ministering with it for more than 23 years, today, I sold my beautiful, custom-made, still-brand-new-looking, Taylor 955CE, 12-string acoustic-electric guitar — ironically, to support the continuing work of my self-funded ministry.
For years, I never even considered doing that, but the time arrived when I felt that the significant amount of money that I could get from selling it could help me accomplish more ministry than having and using the guitar itself.
Sometimes, God’s will is that obvious.
People are more important than things.
I don’t regret my decision at all. The time was right, and I’m glad that I did it.
If I am asked to minister musically again, I will use the 1978 Guild F-512, 12-string acoustic-electric guitar, that I bought when it was less than a year old, way back in 1979.
Update, July 9, 2020: Well, it’s been two weeks since I sold it, and I’m still glad that I did. Surprisingly, I don’t miss it anywhere near as much as I thought that I would, for the past 23 years. It was a top-of-the-line guitar in every way — beautiful and really fancy; and I really was sentimentally attached to it for decades — but, when push came to shove, it turned out that having it really wasn’t as important to me as being able to minister with the money that I got from selling it. 😉
