The Story of How I Got My Gibson Explorer (guitar):
(Each of these are the original tweets. I just randomly posted the first one and the conversation began)
Some days u just feel like pulling out the electric guitar. Did u know I have a purple Gibson Explorer? Might Instagram it this afternoon :)
@shaneawesome: @aheartforgod seriously? That's awesome! < There's a whole spiritual story behind it, too (only with me) :)
@shaneawesome: [Can you share?]
@shaneawesome Well...I was in a Christian band in the late 80s. I felt like God asked me 2 lay it down. So I left the band... #testimonytime
@shaneawesome My fellow band members were brokenhearted. I hated that. They agreed I had 2 do what God wanted me 2 do...
@shaneawesome We had a great ministry going, but God wanted 2 have all of me. Music could not be an idol... #testimonytime
@shaneawesome Anyway, I was gone for a while. That's when something interesting happened. (I so miss those guys)...
@shaneawesome God spoke to me. He said, Mike, you're going back to the band :) #testimonytime
@shaneawesome I thought, Naaaw. But I called up the bass player (&leader)&he confirmed it. He told me God spoke to him, 2
@shaneawesome Furthermore, he (the bass player) told me God had told him he was to give me his Les Paul #testimonytime
@shaneawesome We scheduled a meeting at a restaurant in San Jose 2
surprise the rest of the band (4 other guys&a gal singer) #testimonytime
@shaneawesome I hope I'm not boring you :) #testimonytime
@shaneawesome: [No, please go on]
@shaneawesome They were so surprised (&jazzed) when I said, God wants me to come back to the band (as u might imagine) #testimonytime
@shaneawesome Anyway, that's how I got my purple Gibson Explorer (&still have it 20 yrs later).I traded the Les Paul 4 it :) #testimonytime
@shaneawesome I miss that band so much. God used us in incredible ways to preach the Gospel #Jesus #testimonytime #tears
RT @shaneawesome: @aheartforgod why not start another? < It's past my time (though God might speak to me again?) :)
