SLICE OF LIFE: DAY 15/31 Blessed Assurance


Being Sunday, my day revolves around attending church and adult Sunday School class. It is the highlight of my week. Today was no exception. The sermon was awesome and inspiring. Mike, our pastor, referenced one of my former professors at CBS and that brought back great memories. But the thing that hit me the most today was the music part of the worship service. Eric, our music leader, gave a background of the writer of the song: Blessesd Assurance. I had heard that story probably all my life, but today the story and the words hit me with more power for some reason.

Fanny Crosby, the author, was blinded by an incompetent doctor at six weeks of age. She went on to write over 8,000 hymns. She never complained of her blindness, instead she used it to praise God.

"Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight."
How can I complain about little things that bug me in my life. Her words give me inspiration to take a Slice of Life and turn it into praise and submission.

"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."

This is my Slice of Life today. To be more like this and remember who I am here for and why I am completely praise HIM! "This is my story, this is my song, Praising the Savior all the day long!"

Happy Sunday!
