I Will...

In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I discussed the fact that I've been suffering.  And, so have others who are God's children.

No matter the case, we all need to look to the Lord.  He will provide for us.  Just as He promised.

Today, being SONday, I will praise and glorify Him.  For He deserves to be praised.  And, glorified.

Thinking about this, brought to mind a praise song that I enjoy, by Michael O'Shields entitled, I Will Call Upon the Lord.  Here is a link so you can listen and/or sing along:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jt2vAiM0g_c.  Here are the lyrics, so you can listen and/or sing along.

I Will Call Upon the Lord

I will call upon the Lord
Who is worthy to be praised
So shall I be saved from my enemies
I will call upon the Lord


I will call upon the Lord
Who is worthy to be praised
So shall I be saved from my enemies
I will call upon the Lord

The Lord liveth, and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted
The Lord liveth, and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted


The Lord liveth, and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted
The Lord liveth, and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted


The Lord liveth, and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted
The Lord liveth, and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted


The Lord liveth, and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted
The Lord liveth, and blessed be the Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted


This music reminds me of Psalm 18:46, "The Lord liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted."  After all, it was the basis for the song.

Yes, the Lord liveth!  And, because He lives, so will we... for eternity.  As long as we belong to Him!

We, God's children need to praise and honour Him.  For everything in our lives, to be sure.

We need to exalt Him.  Just as God told us in the psalm.

And so, instead of sleeping in and honouring myself, I will go to worship God. 

After all, He is first (1st) and foremost in my life.  And, always will be.


Until next time...
