One Defining Moment
One defining moment in each of our lives
That make our life have purpose, that make us feel alive
One defining moment which way before our birth,
God has a plan for each of us so we may feel our worth
One defining moment we fit into his plan, the one we were
created for, there’s one for each born man…
Sometimes when we are open, we may be truly blessed,
To know that one small moment, that brings us happiness
One defining moment and sometimes there may be more
If you’re open to the master’s call, help me Lord, not to ignore
Sometimes we may be open and sometimes if we are not
God uses us to help another fill their special spot
So on the days you wonder, why you have been brought here,
That one defining moment will help to make it clear.
Comment on One Defining Moment
I remember my one defining moment. I had opened a Bible for the first
time when I was living in Belize. I remember becoming interested but I
was still a skeptic. My first prayer was to ask God “I want out of this
jungle, help me find a way back to the U.S.” That was my first tour in
He answered my prayer, we came back to a beautiful home, I started a
ladies accessory shop. I was living the American dream. I kept reading the
Bible, seeking, knowing that there was so much that I needed to learn.
I was frustrated but I kept seeking.
One day, something happened. It is hard to put into words. I didn’t hear his
voice, I didn’t feel him touch me but I felt his presence. I felt his love.
A silent voice said “I am with you always”. Silent because the words I
heard did not come from me, I did not know that the verse was in the
Bible. The other thing that happened, all at the same time was that my
heart leaped. All was unexpected.
That was my defining moment. I have since had many moments with the
Lord, but that was the first. I became a believer, after feeling that presence,
that love, my whole life changed.
Do I still sin? Yes, but that voice that I heard “I am with you always”
makes me run back and confess. That was almost 50 years ago. In all that
time he has been faithful even when I wasn’t.
You will seek me and find me
when you seek me with all your heart
–Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)
