This Hymn of the XXI Century Brought Comfort to My Heart Today
As we were driving from Massachusetts earlier today, my wife Joanne played this hymn of the XXI Century, “Blessings” by Laura Story. As I listened to the melody and paid attention to the lyrics, it got to me, it went deep, and brought comfort to my heart. I have lived an awesome and beautiful life, which I am grateful to God for. Yet in the midst of all the blessings I have experienced disappointment, betrayal, sadness, unjust treatment, and some patronizing, among many others which I probably should not mention. If you have experienced any of these mentioned above or much more than what I have just articulated, perhaps this hymn can minister to you as it ministered to me. Listen to it and spend some good moments with God.
Tonight, I am thanking God for Christian composers and artists whom the Holy Spirit has used through centuries, including the XXI Century, to minister to millions and me. I pray this contemporary hymn will minister to you too!
