Story 13: Rosalind Christiana Lim

(SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICE) To lead worship in church is truly an honour and a privilege. It is an opportunity to use the gift of singing to serve God and His church. For me, it was a special calling, which was given to me in a vision when I was 17 years old, and so it has taken many many years to come to fruition.


When God led me to His church at COR, He brought me to a cell group where many served in the Worship Ministry. Shortly after, I was roped in to serve as a vocalist. It was later on, in the last 10 years, that I served as a worship leader.


I remember the many occasions where I stood on stage as a vocalist, wiping away tears because of the touch of God. At times, I would sense His sweet visitation upon the church, His amazing holy presence. At other times, I would hear Him say that all would be well when there was a burden on my heart. Even as I recall those times, my heart fills up with awe and gratitude.


I would reject dinner invitations the Saturday evenings before leading worship. It was my special time with the Lord. This time with the Lord was not to be missed as I believe that when we come together corporately to worship the Lord, warfare is waged in the spiritual realm and victories are won on behalf of God’s people. It has also been our experience that when the Holy Spirit fills us, the worship takes on a far greater dimension, even when the natural musical ability may not be particularly outstanding.


Worship leading had been daunting for me, but God’s anointing and leading have made it a blessed and exciting journey, with glimpses of His holiness, His greatness and His power.


I thank the Lord, the church and members of the Worship Ministry for the opportunity to have served with them. It will always be a treasured memory!

能够在教会里带敬拜是一种的荣幸,是我们用歌声来服事神和教会的荣幸。对我来说,这是一个特别的呼召 - 从17岁的异象,到今天的果实。


当年,神把我带到复活堂,进入了一个有许多敬拜团队的小组。不久过后,我就被拉进去做伴唱。慢慢的在这十年,我就渐渐成为了敬拜领诗。


我记得有好几次在台上唱歌的时候,被神触摸到而流泪。有时也感到神的造访、祂奇妙圣洁的同在。其他时候,当我的心里有负担的时候,我也会听见祂说“一切都会好”。每次想到些,我的心充满了敬畏与感恩。


带领敬拜的前一天,我一定会拒绝任何的预约,因为那是我跟神的特殊时间。这个时间是不能错过的,因为我相信当教会同心合意敬拜的时候,是一个属灵的争战,使神的百姓获胜。我们也经历到当圣灵充满我们的时候,就算我们的音乐技巧不是很优秀,我们的敬拜却使我们进入更深的境界。


带领敬拜使我感到艰巨,但是神的恩膏与带领让我有一个蒙福又精彩的旅程,渐渐的看到神的圣洁、伟大与能力。


我要感谢上帝、教会、还有敬拜团队的会友们给我和他们一起服事的机会。这永远会是一个珍贵的回忆。
