God Answers my Desire to Learn Piano
I would like to share the testimony of how God gave me the gift of a keyboard and piano lessons.
For a long time I had the dream of playing the piano and owning one, though sadly keyboards are very expensive and pianos were out of question. I already played the violin and the recorder, but there was nothing that I wanted more than to learn how to play the piano. I always prayed and believed that my prayers would be answered and I knew that nothing was impossible for God.
And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
Then, one day, it was getting close to my mum’s birthday and her friend, Ewa, asked her what she would like (my mum had also been praying for a piano). Ewa said that she had a gift ready, but wanted to know what the best thing was that she could give her. Since my mum had been praying for a long time she said that a keyboard would be wonderful. And… PTL! Ewa – for a reason that she didn’t know – had brought out a keyboard that her family hadn’t used for over a year and gave it to us for free! It was in perfect condition and only the cable had to be made longer. It really was a prayer answer! Though, at that time I taught myself for I had no teacher. That is, until a friend from our church, offered to give me lessons after her sister, Laura, had heard me playing! I had these lessons for about 6 months until Hannah decided that she was going to move to Austria, her home country. Hearing this I was very upset but I prayed that God would provide another teacher when Hannah left.
Behind our house there is a first-class music school. Finding this, my mum prayed and put my name down for piano lessons. I was overjoyed at the thought even though the waiting list was quite long and I was at the bottom. After about two weeks suddenly the school phoned us and asked me if I wanted piano lessons every Tuesday! They explained that they had rung the 30 – 40 people in front of me on the list but no one answered or got in contact with the school! This was surely the Lord’s doing!
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
I still have these lessons every Wednesday and have taken two grades. My teacher is wonderful and I love learning to play the piano for God’s glory… I play in almost every meeting and thoroughly enjoy it.
Praise The Lord!!!
In His Love,
