“Why did they ask for us?” “Robbie’s been watching you,” my husband said simply. “She’s been watching you when you sing with Faith’s Messengers and says she was drawn to the anointing on you”. My mouth dropped open. Faith’s Messengers was the small ensemble that sang at the early Sunday services and at special events. I sang with them for many years. The story of how God opened that door is a testimony for another time.
“But I never even did solos…” My voice trailed off. “Doesn’t matter,” he said. Whatever God was doing through you got her attention and touched her spirit”. I was floored and humbled. What I had considered to be my small contribution to the group was much more than I even knew. I thanked the Father for this confirmation that my gift was making a difference in someone's life.
My husband and I went on to develop a lasting relationship with Miss Robbie and her husband. They welcomed us into their home, introduced us to their family and included our little family in their holiday gatherings. Because of Miss Robbie, we got to know and spend time with both Billy and Rodena, and I had several opportunities to sit with Billy in his studio and create music.
Ms. Robbie saw something in me that I didn’t even see in myself at the time. Friends, who’s watching you as you display your God-given gifts and talents? What are you planting in their lives unknowingly? I pray it is good seed that will sprout up in good ground and become evidence of God’s faithfulness to you and to your calling.
Today’s scripture: Matthew 5:14 (NKJ)
You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
