In everything we say and do, these are all being reciprocated with love and something we don’t expect in return. However big or small, we should be thankful for all the blessings we receive. Because at the end of the day, God will give us all the things our hearts desire and he grants our wish. He does this in mysterious and unexpected ways.
Furthermore, there are times we feel so down and lonely, and for us, we bow down our heads and pray. Then, we feel better and get relieved; this is a simple way of God’s assurance of blessing and uplifting us. Moreover, we sometimes wish for material things or anything we want. Then, that wish comes true, not merely on the day or time we want to receive, but it happened. Again, that is a simple way of God granting our dreams.
With this, God deserves a thank you message from us through communication and prayers. All we need to do is talk to him and count our blessings. Give thanks to God by listening to Alan Jackson’s “Blessed Assurance.” The hymn will remind us every day of the blessings from up above.
The hymn is a worldwide favorite Christian song. It is being used in many churches and religious events. The power of the song can genuinely pierce our hearts and souls. It can even change a person just by listening to it.
Moreover, Fanny Crosby was the songwriter behind the lyrics of “Blessed Assurance” in 1973. Meanwhile, Phoebe Knapp arranged the music of the hymn. Phoebe and Fanny are close friends back then.
Back then, Fanny visited her friend Phoebe. At that time, Phoebe was having a large pipe installed into her organ. The organ was incomplete so Phoebe, using the piano, she played the new melody she just composed. Phoebe asked her friend Fanny what she thinks of the tune. Fanny just replied, “Blessed Assurance”: Jesus Is Mine.” Then, they started penning the words and lyrics of “Blessed Assurance.”
Speaking of an overwhelming feeling of gratitude, abundant music, and a story strengthened with a soothing melody, then that is definitely no other than Alan Jackson. You’ll agree with me in saying he’s one of the most soulful country musicians moving people with his undeniably empowering songs. Besides, the emotion he outpours from his mellow songs to jittery bug tunes that can truly persuade us and is undoubtedly larger-than-life. Above all, he dedicated his life and music creating and recording gospel songs which we love to hear.
