Singing is one of the Best Gifts I’ve Ever Received

Share one of the best gifts you’ve ever received.

For long as I can remember, I have sung. I started singing at a very young age. I have always loved how my voice sounds.This is how I express how I am feeling inside. When I am singing, my spirit is standing before the Lord worshiping Him. When I am standing singing, I can see Him in my spirit standing with His arms stretched out wide. All I can do is bask in His radiance and glory. I am thankful that He has given me this beautiful gift. I don’t know what I would do if I could not sing for Him.

I was little, some ladies, came to church to hear me sing. I was four years old then. I can naturally hear music; I don’t need it to sing a song. I can hear every instrument playing in my spirit; from the drums to the horns, to the piano, and every note on the scale that is in the song. I have always received standing ovations without a dry eye in the house. I could not do it without God. He has given me the gift of music in every way. I played my first song at age five without music. I sat at the piano at the church my grandmother and I were visiting. After service was over, I sat down at the piano and played my first song ever, Leaning On the Everlasting Arms. I was so excited! She was talking to her friend, and she turned around looked at me and smiled. I asked her if she heard me playing, and she said yes. That was the first time I ever saw her smile so big and proud.

In 2016 I became an ordained minister. When I told her she was so proud of me. We went home to visit family, and we went to church the next morning. We were not in the parking lot five minutes before my cousin, whose the pastor of my home church asked me to sing something for them, I said I would. Her mother saw me and before she could get the words out, I told her that her daughter already told me that I was going to have to sing for the congregation. After Communion, she introduced me. All I could do was smile. My grandmother, mom, and husband were sitting in the front row. I got up and she handed me the microphone, and I started singing. I was in my feelings, but the message from the song was received. My family was stunned! Everyone clapped for me except one person, they sat there and stared at me like I had done something wrong. My cousin, who was sitting behind us told my husband that he should have been up there with me. My aunt called me when we made it home after we left my sister’s house. She told me that my song was beautiful and she was proud of me. My grandmother smiled while we were at church. That was the last time she heard me sing. I thought we were going to visit again, but work got in the way, so she didn’t get to hear the other song I wrote.

Singing comes naturally to me. Playing music comes naturally to me. These gifts I have are from God, and I take them very seriously. I know I may be rambling, but it all goes hand in hand. These are gifts that God Has given to me to share with everyone. I have many more gifts to talk about, but those are for another day.

Don’t let your gifts and talents fade; use them because they were given to you just for that reason. God bless.
