Bring It On Home To Me...

Anyone who has been a long-time reader of Life with Lynnie (LwL) understands that from time to time, God places a song on my heart and in my head.  Usually, there is a message that gets revealed to me, at some point in time.

Well, it's happened once again.  Yes, there's a song I can't get out of my head.

This song has been on my mind and in my heart on a regular basis, since I first had my surgery.  Truly, it's strange to wake up after surgery, having a song in your head!

What's also strange is the fact that every time I awaken, whether after a night's sleep, or a short nap, this song is on my heart and in my head.

The strangest part for me, is that I have no idea what God is trying to say to me.  In the past, as I mentioned, usually there is a message for me.  But, to date, I haven't understood it.

The song is an oldie, but goodie, by Sam Cooke, entitled Bring It On Home To Me.  Here is a Youtube LINK to listen to the music.  Here are the lyrics:

Bring It On Home To Me - Sam Cooke
 
If you ever change your mind
About leaving, leaving me behind
Oh-oh, bring it to me
Bring your sweet loving
Bring it on home to me, yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah)

I know I laughed when you left
But now I know I only hurt myself
Oh-oh, bring it to me
Bring your sweet loving
Bring it on home to me, yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah)

I'll give you jewellery and money, too
That ain't all, that ain't all I'll do for you
Oh, if you bring it to me
Bring your sweet loving
Bring it on home to me, yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah)

You know I'll always be your slave
'Til I'm buried, buried in my grave
Oh honey, bring it to me
Bring your sweet loving
Bring it on home to me, yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah)

One more thing
I tried to treat you right
But you stayed out, stayed out late at night
But I forgive you, bring it to me
Bring your sweet loving
Bring it on home to me, yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah)
Yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah)...
 
Even though I do not understand what is happening here, I am trusting God.  Not just to reveal what He is trying to tell me, but also, for everything in my life.  Including guidance, that can only come from Him.
 
In Psalm 32:8 God tells us,  "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye."
 
How thankful I am that He is always there for me.  In my heart, mind and spirit.  Again, I must say that I cannot imagine living my life without Him.
 
Hopefully, you are trusting in our Lord, for everything in your life.  If not, please do so today, for we are not guaranteed, tomorrow.
 
 
Until next time...
