One of my favorite lines in an old hymn is in the song “How Great Thou Art.” The chorus starts with, “Then sings my soul, my Savior God to thee.”
I love the image of my praise coming not from my voice, mind, or heart, but rather from the very core of my being. The essence of that song is about our creator God and his son Jesus.
I am incredibly thankful for Jesus and the salvation he brings. I am grateful every single day, but today I want to pause and focus on the remarkable gift of a second chance in Jesus. January is almost over, and I am reminded how much I need his grace every new year, month, week, and day.
The other line in a song I love is from the song “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.” The chorus finishes with, “And the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of his glory and grace.”
Today the world seems dim as my soul sings out in thanksgiving to Jesus.
