A miracle happened yesterday!
For our graduation, all the graduates sang "Be Thou My Vision" as our Graduates Prayer. I played the piano. Now, I usually get pretty nervous when I perform on the piano, hands shake, legs shake and I generally mess up once or twice. I was playing Be Thou My Vision through 6 times, so I figured I would be fine by the end - but I was worried about my introduction verse.
Then I walked up there and sat down, everyone got ready and then one of the graduates played a verse on her tin whistle. While she played, I was slightly nervous, but then it was my turn, and the nervousness was gone. I played that piece 6 times through PERFECTLY. I have NEVER EVER in my 8 years of piano experience played a piece perfectly, not even at home by myself. And I played it perfectly six times. Not only that, but I was able to sing along to all the verses. At the practice, I could only sing the few lines here an there that I had memorized, because I was concentrating on playing and couldn't read the words. But then, it was almost as if someone else was playing the piano for me (I think there was...) and I was able to read the notes and the words and sing the whole song, something I had really wanted to do, but I didn't think I'd be able to since I didn't have the song memorized.
At one point, about half way through, I realized how well I was doing, and I almost got scared, but I knew that if I thought about what I was doing, I would mess up, and so I kept on going. Kind of like Peter walking on water... but I didn't drown.
So Praise God and a huge thank you to everyone who prayed for me! It really worked!
