How Great Thou Art
For as long as I can remember I have been a singer. I started singing in the church choir when I was about eight-years-old and continue to this day spreading God’s Word through song. As a young child living in the inner city, my first memory of singing is me getting ready for church and getting a song stuck in my head. As I walked around the house singing my mother, after telling me two or three times to stop, smacked me in my mouth. For some reason she did not think it was appropriate for me to sing Money (That’s What I Want), a popular Ray Charles tune, while getting ready for Sunday School, go figure!
The concept of Then Sings My Soul…reflections of a songstress has been rolling around in my head for quite some time. Tonight, while reading Scripture I decided to start penning something. So here goes: this platform is where I will reflect on Scripture as it relates to a song that I am familiar with. I will give the Scripture I have read, the name of the song it reminds me of, where I was when I first heard the song, the history of the song and any reflections I might have related to the song.
I pray that something I share at some point in time touches your soul and reminds you of our Creator. The One who, when I look around at all He has created, makes my soul sing.
When I consider Your heavens, the works of Your fingers, the moon and the stars…Psalms 8:3
