Convicted of my Sins

Share Your Story: God Spoke to Me Through that Song

By Val Eaves

Convicted of my Sins

Joscelyn Alexander - Sanctus

What song God spoke to me through

When I was first saved God blessed me with the song, "In loving kindness, Jesus came, my soul in mercy to reclaim. And from the depths of sin and shame, I know He lifted me. From sinking sands, He lifted me. With loving hand He lifted me. From shades of night to plains of light, O praise His Name, He lifted me."

I enjoy many of the modern songs and choruses but feel we miss out on a lot of blessing by not still singing the old hymns that have stood the test of time. God bless you. Val Eaves

The issue I was facing

My mother came to Jesus during the Billy Graham rallys. Her life was totally changed and she would say to me, "I know I am going to heaven." I thought that I was not that bad and we would all go to heaven. For 6 months I became convicted of my sins and once again, during the Billy Graham relays I was taken to a service. One minute I did not understand, then I knew Jesus had died for me and I believed him. Val Eaves

Advice

  • From that time I knew what it was to be held close to Jesus through the bad times and good. He has never left me to my own devices but carried me all the way.
