Niyoki spoke about growing up in a musical family and how she came to a point where she made the choice to surrender a music career and trust God with her future, rather than chasing fame and worldly success. Niyoki’s time with our residents was so uplifting as she sang songs from her new album “Rest”. She sang about her love for the Lord and the peace she finds in using her God-given talents to glorify Him, rather than striving to get ahead or to be known. Niyoki has a real joy for life that rubs off on everyone she meets!
Here is what a few of our girls had to say about her visit:
Andrea said, “Joy is completely different from happiness or how we feel about certain situations. How many people would not be blessed if Niyoki had not decided to walk in the will of God? It makes me think about my life; not walking in the will of God can be selfish in so many ways.”
Andi said, “Now, I realize that I can come to God just as I am and give Him my burdens. He knows right where I am at. It does not matter what my struggles are because I need to allow God to move and I must have joy in the midst of struggle.”
Abby said, “I realized that I need to give everything to God and He will take care of me!”
