Lessons from Little Ones

This week some of our children had to get immunizations. As I sat with them in the clinic, they sang so many hymns and songs they’ve learned in school. It was so cute! I think the most precious thing was hearing them whimper as they got their shot, walk out with tears in their eyes, and then start singing a worship song to Jesus. What a testimony these kids are to me!

We have been studying the Psalms recently. No matter what troubles David was facing, he always focused his attention on who God is. I am learning, just as David did and these young children I work with, to praise God in every circumstance. No matter what I “feel” like or what situations arise, my desire is to praise the Lord of heaven and earth who knows so much better than me and loves me more than I could ever imagine!
