“This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long.” I’ve heard this line from Blessed Assurance probably a million times but last week when they were singing it at church I was convicted in my spirit; “Savannah is this really your story and your song? Are you really praising your Savior all the day long?” I couldn’t answer. I
immediately thought about that moment at work where I was complaining way too much or when I had hateful thoughts towards another person or a whole other list of times where I knew I was not pleasing God with my actions. I think a lot of us can relate to this but we brush it off as “human nature” or say “I’m sorry God I’ll do better next time” and then on Sunday we sing this song as if it was truth.
Now don’t misunderstand me I don’t think we will ever get to a place where we are perfect but the song in our heart should be to bring praise and honor to God with our every thought and action. The overflow of our heart should be praise. When that person at work irritates us or when we are driving and someone cuts us off what is our first response? These are just two examples but I think it states the point. Throughout our everyday tasks is God on our minds? Are our actions something that says, “I’m praising my Savior all the day long?”
This is my prayer that I would be someone that can boldly and confidently sing “this is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long.” I pray that while I am washing the dishes, or preparing meals at work and teaching my dance classes or just walking around the mall, whatever it may be that I am doing that praising God with my thoughts or actions would be on the forefront of my mind and heart. It’s not easy and it’s a growing process but with the Lord’s help it will
become more and more second nature.
