This Is My Story // The Story Behind The Song

 

Friends,

I am so excited to finally share my new single with you, This Is My Story. It is the first song I've released in almost 3 years, and hopefully the first of many to come this year :).

I want to tell you a little bit about the background of this song. Over the last few months, I've heard from so many people about their struggles with doubt. It can be easy for us to turn on God in the midst of darkness and hardship, and even more tempting when it feels like we've waited an eternity for Him to fulfill a promise or holy desire in our lives. That's exactly where the enemy tries to speak his lies to us. We start to doubt God's plans for us, doubt that He will come through on His promises, doubt that He actually knows what's good for us, doubt in His love. 

We were never promised a life free of suffering and hardship - it's an inevitable part of being human. But we have been promised that we would never walk alone, and while this may not make everything easier, it can help us embrace life with joy. God sees our pain, and He has the power to transform it into something beautiful if we walk with Him through it. 

God writes our stories. We may not always like the way it's written or what the next page holds. We probably won't understand it most of the time. We are not expected to be able to understand the ways of our Father. We are simply asked to trust. To trust that He's got us in the palm of His hands. To trust that He's sees what's going on and will never leave our side through whatever storms may come our way. To trust that He has our greatest good in mind. Always. 

'This Is My Story' is a song about claiming God's story for us. A story that is filled with hope, redemption, resurrection, mercy. A story filled with light. We may not know what the next page holds, but we know Who is writing it, and because of that, we must always press on in hope. 


I pray that this small offering of a song is a blessing to your prayer life, whatever season you're in. You can purchase the song on iTunesAmazon, or Google Play. As an added bonus, I also released a music video of the song! You can find that by clicking here. I would be honored if you would help me to get the word out there about the new release by sharing a link to the song with your friends and family. Thank you for being a part of my story.

Be His,

Be strong and steadfast; have no fear or dread of them, for it is the LORD, your God, who marches with you; he will never fail you or forsake you.
— Deuteronomy 31:6

 

This Is My Story

(Written by Sarah Kroger and Sarah Hart)

There’s a song that You sing in the morning light

O wondrous love, O wondrous love

There’s a song that You sing in my longest night

O wondrous love, O wondrous love

 

High on the mountain, tossed to the seas

I am remembered, You are for me

Your voice is freedom, Your word is peace

I am remembered, You are for me

 

This is my story, this is my song

This is my story, this is my song

 

Every wound is a kiss, every thorn a grace

O wondrous love, O wondrous love

Every beat of my heart is Your highest praise

O wondrous love, O wondrous love

 

On wings of eagles, in valleys deep

I am remembered, You are for me

Your voice is freedom, Your word is peace

I am remembered, You are for me

 

This is my story, this is my song

This is my story, this is my song 

 

Jesus

You are my song

 

You are my story, You are my song
