After I was saved, one thing really embarrassed me was to sing songs during worship time because I couldn’t carry a tune. It wasn’t a pleasant thing to hear me singing a song. That’s why I seldom sang songs during my life. Whenever I tried to sing in the KTV with my friends, they always laughed at me and they gave me the moniker out-of-tune king. So I was afraid of singing songs as I didn’t want to make myself embarrassed in front of people.
When I was saved, I started having fellowship in the church, and I always tried to get through worship time. Thank God, the brothers and sisters started teaching me how to sing and encouraged me with the word of God. Then I started to meditate on this word, “Praise ye the Lord. He is good: for His mercy endures forever.” God loved me so much, and He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for me on the cross. I made myself think about the love of the Lord Jesus and the word of God. Then I realized that “I live with a purpose of worshiping the Lord.”
Then I started to participate in worship, and every time I sang, I just looked at Jesus, knowing that Lord looks at my heart. Little by little, I started enjoying singing songs to worship the Lord at worship time. The more I sang, the more I felt strengthened. Now, not only can I stand on the stage singing songs, but I can lead a chorus. I can immerse myself in a beautiful hymn worshiping my God, my Lord, totally forgetting my former situation. Thank God for His grace, which makes me able to sing songs and to praise Him out loud.
