Wednesday Wisdom: My Testimony in a Song

If we have ever heard of Laura Story, it is most likely because of her song entitled Blessings.  This song became well-known in the CCM world and can still be heard on the radio.  It is a beautiful call to look for God’s blessings through all of our circumstances.   This thought-provoking song led me to check out this talented artist. What I found was a woman who sings beautiful songs that actually have deep meaning. I have been truly blessed by her music and thought I would share a song with you that you have probably not heard.  It is entitled Grace and the lyrics really are my own testimony.  You can listen to the song here.

GRACE

My heart is so proud. My mind is so unfocused.
I see the things You do through me as great things I have done.
And now You gently break me, then lovingly You take me
And hold me as my father and mold me as my maker.

[Chorus:]
I ask you: “How many times will you pick me up,
When I keep on letting you down?
And each time I will fall short of Your glory,
How far will forgiveness abound?”
And You answer: ” My child, I love you.
And as long as you’re seeking My face,
You’ll walk in the power of My daily sufficient grace.”

At times I may grow weak and feel a bit discouraged,
Knowing that someone, somewhere could do a better job.
For who am I to serve You? I know I don’t deserve You.
And that’s the part that burns in my heart and keeps me hanging on.

[Chorus:]
I ask you: “How many times will you pick me up,
When I keep on letting you down?
And each time I will fall short of Your glory,
How far will forgiveness abound?”
And You answer: ” My child, I love you.
And as long as you’re seeking My face,
You’ll walk in the power of My daily sufficient grace.”
You are so patient with me, Lord.

As I walk with You, I’m learning what Your grace really means.
The price that I could never pay was paid at Calvary.
So, instead of trying to repay You, I’m learning to simply obey You
By giving up my life to you For all that You’ve given to me.

[Chorus:]
I ask you: “How many times will you pick me up,
When I keep on letting you down?
And each time I will fall short of Your glory,
How far will forgiveness abound?”
And You answer: ” My child, I love you.
And as long as you’re seeking My face,
You’ll walk in the power of My daily sufficient grace.”

  1. Ashley and Emily bought her piano book when she was at youth conference a few years ago! There is another song of her’s to check out, and has been a great source of comfort to us! It’s called, Perfect Peace! :)

    1. Beth, it was actually hard to pick just one song to share this morning. I can’t think of one song that hasn’t blessed me with its message! I will have to check out the piano book :)
