My Song Beat Me Back Home

Song: "Open Our Eyes, Lord"

 

"I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints" (Eph. 1:18).

Occasionally a song comes along that is not planned or expected or even hoped for, yet it is there. It flourishes and is spread around the world with the songwriter doing not one single thing to promote it.

First, let me acquaint you with Bob Cull. He was born in Los Angeles, California, in 1949. His parents, Robert and Mary Cull, arranged for his piano lessons starting at age six. A little later, while still in grade school, he began playing in the church band and then went on to learn more than a dozen instruments.

When it was time for Bob to go to college, Reverend Bill Stephens, pastor of the Medford Assembly of God, drove fifteen hundred miles to Southern California College just to talk face-to-face with the school's officials concerning Bob. He told them of the dedication and resolve of one of his young members and how he should be given a chance to further his education. Bob was accepted into the school and has since that time been extremely grateful to his pastor for the kind efforts on his behalf.
