“Jesus made my heart sing.”
August 22, 2011
What a powerful message! These words come from 13-year-old Daphney, one of the girls from Haiti who traveled with the His Little Feet Children’s Choir from November 2010-May 2011.
How often do you hear a 13-year-old say something so significant? At His Little Feet, our desire is for all of the choir children to be able to identify the true reason for the songs they sing – Jesus Christ.
So, what makes your heart sing? Do you have a reason to sing each day? Are you giving the Lord all the praise He deserves?
As we press forward, may we allow the love of Christ to be the reason we sing…
“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.” Colossians 3:16
Below, Daphney shares in her own words some reflections from her time in the States and important things she learned:
“My name is Daphney. I decided to come to America because I wanted to sing. When we stayed in host homes, I enjoyed our time off when we got to see new places. One of my favorite places to visit was the mall because it was fun to look at the clothes and shoes. California was my favorite state in America because the weather and green grass reminded me of Haiti.
When we had school on the road, I enjoyed helping some of the younger children learn their French lessons. One of the new and favorite words I learned in English was ‘FYI- For Your Information’. The song in the concert I liked the best was ‘Today is the Day’ because the movements were fun. The concerts are important because they help children around the world get sponsored and adopted. I am thankful that God used me to help children.”
