I began knowing about The Lord at a very early age, five to be exact. As I grew I had the privilege of going to Good News Bible Clubs after school. The flannel graph and songs were always inspiriting. I still recall one of the songs from those days:
ďBeing my heart was black by sin, until the Saviour came in.
His precious blood I know, He washed it white as snow.
And in His Word Iím told, Iíll walk the streets of gold,
Oh wonderful wonderful day, He took my sins away.Ē
There was much I had to learn, and even more I didnít understand, but was confident even then, that He was working and planning my life.
I didnít always serve the Lord, and knew many struggles; but this I know: God has never failed me once!
I am thankful that He chose me to be His son.
~ A Taste Of Glory ~
I got a taste of Glory
As each note with care I played
The songs would tell a story
How on Christ, my sin was laid.
Those times when I was lonely
And had no place to turn
My hope was in Him only
And at His feet I'd learn, that
Shadows come as part of life
I'd rather this not be
For shadows often made me cry
And I would not be free.
But in the shadows He was there
Just as He said He'd be
To let me know how much He cared
And was waiting just for me.
To lead me to a higher place
A place prepared for me
Where I'll forever see His face
Where I will e'er be free.
