No longer than an hour or so after I was born of God I discovered that I had a talent I had never been aware of before.
After leaving the home of my grandparents where I had knelt in prayer and repentance and acknowledged the Lord Jesus as the One who bore away all my sin at the cross. I asked Him to come and help me to live my life for His honour and for His glory.
All I ever longed for was to have a living relationship with God and perhaps the ability to be able to do something that would somehow give Him pleasure. And now that at last I was saved by His wonderful grace and made one of His children, I knew all that everything I had longed was ahead of me, at last. I cannot explain the joy that filled my heart as I walked back to my car. I felt as if I was walking on air. It was a thing most wonderful to me to know that “I am His and He is mine” – forever! It didn't matter to me that I couldn't actually see Him, because I knew I would one soon day. All that mattered to me from that moment on was to find a way that I might be able to please Him in some small way.
I sat in my car for a while before setting out on my short journey back home wondering and praying at the same time about what was now ahead of me. On the way I began to do something I had never done before. I sang the beautiful Hymn, “Amazing Grace” when there was no one to hear but God alone. I didn't know the words to any other hymns; however this one seemed to utterly fit my thoughts and feelings at that precise moment of time.
