I used to wonder how God would ever use a simple girl like me for His own good purpose. But that became abundantly clear when I realized the musical gifts He gave me.
Ever since I was young, music brought me great joy, and God put an unquenchable desire in my heart to keep improving and learning to play new instruments. I started with the tambourines, but God prompted my heart to take on one instrument after another, including the guitar, the bass, the drums, and the keyboard.
I now have the priceless privilege of leading my church into His beautiful presence through playing musical instruments during our praise and worship time. As the years have passed and our small church has grown, I found the Lord fulfilling His greater purpose for me—to teach and impart this God-given talent to our youth and our church’s leaders. I am humbled to have served not just the Lord but also the church, so they too can glorify God and experience the anointing that flows through worship music, bringing the worshipper to the foot of His throne.
But more than just teaching the proper way to play the instruments, it is emphasizing that a sincere heart of worship is what truly brings genuine music before the holy presence of God—a sweet and an acceptable offering permeating right into His very own heart. Life may have thrown challenges at me, but I will never stop becoming God’s living instrument in helping others see the face of the Lord Jesus and experience the fullness of His presence.
