What’s the story behind the song “I Hear His Voice”?
I’m going on a mission to Piracicaba, Brazil, soon. But when I read my call and it said I was going to go to Brazil, I felt weird. It was something so unexpected for me. In fact, I was preparing to speak English. I wondered if something was wrong. But I knelt down to pray to my Father, and I willingly said to Him that I was going to do it. And then I received peace. I received that comfort that I needed, and everything has seemed better. It is something that I hold special. I have had so many other experiences hearing His voice, but this is one that really touched me.
Writing “I Hear His Voice” was a great experience for me. It has been a great opportunity to share my testimony. There is a line in the bridge of the song that says “I can’t imagine how someone like me can speak with the Maker.”
And I can’t imagine
How someone like me
Could speak with the Maker
Be healed by my Savior
And filled with His peace
That’s how I feel when I pray. When I feel the Spirit touch my heart and my soul, I think, “Can I really talk with my Heavenly Father and ask Him for any help?” And I can. If I feel sad or happy, I can talk to Him. That is something that is comforting and brings peace to my soul.
For all of these wonders
I can’t help but rejoice
Cause I’ve felt His presence
I hear His voice
Anyone can feel the Holy Ghost. Anyone can be influenced by Him. Anyone can talk to Heavenly Father. It’s not just for members of the Church or religious people. The message of my song is that it doesn’t matter where you are or where you’re from or who you are. The Lord is always there to help you. God is always there to hear anything that we want to hear from Him. That is the best message that the song can bring to anyone.
