Day 25 of “40 Days of Praise: A Hymn Devotional” by David Herndon

40daysofpraisehymndevotionalThis particular daily session focussed on the hymn, “Oh For A Thousand Tongues to Sing”, written by Charles Wesley as a tribute to his one year anniversary of coming to Salvation in Christ. David suggests to the reader that they should take stock of when they got saved. Do they have a date? Or a time frame? Then not merely to note that date or time frame, but to take a moment in prayer or in writing, to write a poem or in some way bring praise to God for having saved them.

It just so happens that I got saved the first week of July at Kids Camp at Nanoose Bay Pentecostal Camp when I was 7 years old. I don’t remember the exact date now, but do remember it was around the middle of the week roughly. I’m thinking perhaps a Wednesday when I got saved.

Indeed I am thankful for God getting my attention back then, and for the courage to ignore my cabinmates and going up to the front of the tabernacle anyway to accept Christ into my heart and cleanse me from my sin. My testimony is not one of having been saved from a list of terrible lifestyle choices at the moment of Salvation. No. . . my testimony is of the keeping power of God through various storms instead, and through the consequences of various life decisions that could have been made differently. God has been there through it all, and I am incredibly grateful!
