Several years ago I was involved in starting a children's choir. Our inspiration came from this Psalm and rereading it today brought back a flood of memories.
One translation says of verse 2, "from the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise." The children in our choir were young and inexperienced but through their faithfulness we raised money for a pastor in Africa so that he could buy a brick-making machine to build a church. We outfitted children with school uniforms and we provided medical supplies. It was a real lesson for me. I never imagined that the influence of such a small group of young children could extend so far. My faith grew so much during that time.
I just listened again to our theme song, "Eclats de Joie" (bursts of praise) written by our choir director and gave thanks to God again for all he did during that time: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hAbQF_HRQQs
