What’s Your Story?


Blessed Assurance This Is My Story This Is My Song

If the story of your life was written for all to read, what would it reveal about you? Or, what if a song was sung to celebrate you, what would it say?

Let me encourage you friend, if you enjoy the blessed assurance found in Jesus, then make the story of your life the praising of your Savior all day, every day.

Why would you not praise Him? Fore it is through the Lord Jesus that you are an heir of salvation, purchased by God. Remember, it is through Him, you are born of His Spirit when you were washed in His blood.

Oh friend, give your life to Him with perfect submission and enjoy the foretaste of glory divine. Allow Him to purge evil from your heart and fill you with His goodness as you lose yourself in His mercy and love. Turn away from the allurements of the world they have nothing lasting to offer. Only in Him can you find the perfect delight of rest, happiness and blessings.

He is coming again one day to take you home. So tell the author now and say to the composer, “This is my story; this is my song, Praising my Savior all the day long!”

If I can help you with any spiritual need drop me a line at clay@claygentry.com. May God blessing be upon us as we keep sharing the good news.


Many of you who have been in church, for even the shortest amount of time, recognized that I weaved together the words from “Blessed Assurance” (Fanny Crosby 1873) for this post. But just in case you are not familiar with the lyrics of the song they are as follows:

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.

  1. Thanks, friend!! We need to be reminded of this every day, all day long!! Your analogy of a song/story made me think of the inscription on someone’s headstone. What does it say about that person?
