‘Lo, I am with you alway’

God's guidance in my musical career has felt evident ever since I was growing up. The Bible and music were very important in my home. Solos in church and school were fun. As my talent developed, larger opportunities arrived, and I thanked God for strength and confidence. 

After college graduation a number of years ago, I was accepted to a very prestigious, tuition-free music institute, where I met a singing coach who became my mentor and who encouraged me to audition abroad in various opera houses. I prayed for guidance and courage to travel alone. Initially performances and teaching in public schools provided funds. I then found myself in a large city in Europe, with a two-year contract in a major opera house, which expanded to five years. 

I reached out to God in prayer since I didn’t speak the local language. A gentle angel-message reminded me, “God is in your heart.” I knew that no matter what, even without my knowing the language, God was guiding me and would show me how to live in this city that was all new to me.
