I Know Who I Am

“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praise of He who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.” – 1 Peter 2:9

Staina Sings a Song of Hope

The children had just been invited to share a song. It was quiet for a moment, as the shy kids hid their faces, not wanting to perform in front of a crowd. Then, seven-year-old Staina raised her hand and quietly but confidently walked to the front. "Just as I am," she sang in French, "from my heart and my soul; Let all that I am be yours, Lord."
