Melva enjoys sharing her love of music with others by writing and ministering the word of God through song. Her constant prayer is that her life and the songs God has given her will touch people all over the nation and bring lost souls toChrist. She believes music has the power to heal and to change lives and convey a message of healing and deliverance to those who need encouragement and hope; for music not only serves as a universal language but also as a major tool for witness and evangelism for the Kingdom of God.
Scripture of Inspiration: The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
Psalm 28: 7
If you are experiencing sickness, bereavement, shut in or confined to a hospital or any other institution of healing, or maybe you are just going through the challenges of everyday life; I pray this music will offer assurance that God is as much in your presence as He is anywhere else. My prayer is that it will bring physical and emotional healing and deliverance to your soul.
REMEMBER GOD LOVES YOU AND SO DO I !!
Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted within me? Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance and my God. Psalm 42:11
Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed: Save me, and I shall be saved; for You are my praise.
