My name is Thelma van Heerden, I’m a prophetic worshiper/worship artist. I’m giving my testimony with a thankful heart. Starting with a scripture in the bible that makes such a great impact in my life:
Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 29 “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘He who offers the sacrifice of his peace offering to the Lord shall bring his offering to the Lord from the sacrifice of his peace offering. 30 His own hands shall bring the offerings made by fire to the Lord. The fat with the breast he shall bring, that the breast may be waved as a wave offering before the Lord. – Leviticus 7:28-30
We are the only people who can express our thankfulness to God and to others, the question is, do we leave it to others to express thanks for what people have done? Do we rely on the one leading the prayer to thank God for us? I want to take time to express thanks both to God and to others who have helped and blessed me. A year and a half ago, I sat in my room desperately crying out to God for help regarding a situation in my life, I heard the Holy spirit saying “My child surrender” I had a book with blank pages in front of me with a pen, as I stared at this book the words of a song came up, as I wrote this song I could hear this song in my head over and over again.
A month or two went past, a ministry named JTL South Africa invited me to minister in worship, I had this urging inside of me to sing this song that evening with or without instruments. When it was time for me to sing, the band played the song exactly the way as I heard it in my head that night when I wrote it.
The end of the evening I got to meet Pastor Donald Siwele from Acts Continued Ministries and Pastor Ebenezer Kiluba from JTL South Africa they wanted to sponsor me to record the song.
God sent so many people in my life that made this song possible, I didn’t do anything after writing and recording the song, but in the process that I waited for my song to be released, God gave me so many guidelines on how to surrender my everything to Him. I surrender my first single that I recorded, featuring (VH) Voices of Heaven and produced by renowned worship artist and saxophonist Ayo Solanke that was released September 2018.
The most amazing part of my single to me is ” I am nothing but something with You God”.
