This is My Story

Christian Gifts | Blessed Assurance | This is my Story, This is my Song | Hymn Wall Art | Imperfect

What is your story?  Is it your life?  Some things are happening in my life that I wish I could erase, but I cannot.  Uncertainties and changes do their best to weigh me down.  Remaining hopeful and faithful is a constant battle.  Trusting God is a challenge when fear and worry want to take over my thoughts.  I’m tired, but throwing in the towel is not an option.  I cannot change my circumstances, but God can change me.

I cannot tell you the number of times I have cried, “I do not want what I am going through to be part of my story.  No way, no how!” but nevertheless, it is, and there is nothing I can do to change it, but God can change me.

Last Sunday morning in church, we sang the hymn, “Blessed Assurance.”  While singing the refrain, God took the opportunity to change me.  He showed me my story isn’t what I’m going through, but how I go through it…….praising my Savior all the day long.

BLESSED ASSURANCE

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

Refrain:
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels, descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.
