Vonnie, a pianist and one of my clients, shared with me an incredible true story that happened to her the week before Christmas. I thought it was perfect for the holiday season. After all, this is a time when we reflect on the miracles in the Christmas and Hanukkah stories.
For years I have almost been crippled with this stabbing sensation of fear just before going on stage to perform. Even though the concerts with my group usually went well, I was a complete wreck inside before and all during the performances. No one ever had a clue how much I was suffering & would often tell me I appeared completely professional on stage.
A couple of weeks ago, I had been working on the custom Healing Code Diane gave me for the fear of making mistakes in a performance. I had not had a lot of time for practicing for this particular performance and was quite stressed about it, but the night of, by some miracle (thank you God through the Healing Codes), I actually felt calm and prepared.
However, I was not prepared for what happened at the end of the concert.
As I usually do, I had brought a light from home to attach to the piano so that I could read the music. A couple of measures into the last number, there was a loud boom and the building went completely pitch black—except for my tiny light over the piano. Believe me I was thanking God sooo much, as it would have been impossible for me to continue playing with the chorus as they kept singing. I did not know this piece by memory.
Eventually, after the number was over, the lights came back on. I later learned that a transformer had blown. The stage manager came over to my side of the stage to check out all the wiring. I told him I was so thankful that my light stayed on when the building went dark. He asked what I meant. I told him again. He said that was impossible. I asked why and his response was that my light was on the same circuit as all the other lights in the building. He also showed me that the outlet my light was plugged into was not a battery operated outlet.
I cried out with JOY—it was GOD!!!! It was the power of GOD that kept my light on as I played that last piece!!! I’ve never had anything quite like that occur in my entire life. It was like God was showing me He was and is my ultimate power source, even in the midst of something that might seem so insignificant to others—a school concert performance! I cried happy tears all the way home that night!
Thanks, Vonnie! What a reminder that the Light that broke into the world 2000 years ago still shines today for each of us. What might happen when that Light breaks through your heart issues?
