Open My Eyes That I May See...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I enjoy discussing my Lord's Day.  SONday!

You're probably aware, that since I cannot drive, I won't be able to join my church family in worshipping, today.

Even so, I do my best to worship and honour God, even though I am at home.  And, alone.

A few weeks ago during our worship service at church, we sang a hymn that I had only sang a few times.  I was reminded about how beautiful it is.

The hymn was written by Clara H. Scott and is entitled, Open My Eyes That I May See.  Here is a link so you can watch/listen and/or sing along:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkXIjZERSnE.  Below, are the lyrics.

Open My Eyes That I May See

Open my eyes, that I may see
Glimpses of truth Thou hast for me;
Place in my hands the wonderful key
That shall unclasp and set me free.

 
(Refrain:)
Silently now I wait for Thee,
Ready my God, Thy will to see,
Open my eyes, illumine me,
Spirit divine!

Open my ears, that I may hear
Voices of truth Thou sendest clear;
And while the wave notes fall on my ear,
Everything false will disappear.

 
Refrain

Open my mouth, and let me bear,
Gladly the warm truth everywhere;
Open my heart and let me prepare
Love with Thy children thus to share.

 
Refrain
 
We need our eyes opened.
 
Just as God told us in Psalm 119:18, "Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law."
 
While we who are trusting in Jesus for our salvation, do not live by the law, the law of the Old Testament does help the Holy Spirit convict us of sin.  Sin in our lives.
 
There is no one who has ever lived on our earth, who has not had sin in their lives.  Except our Lord, Jesus, of course!
 
We need to accept that we are a sinner.  A sinner, who needs a Saviour.
 
The only person who can save anyone, is our Lord, Jesus Christ, who gave His life.  For you, if you are trusting in Him.  For me, and for any/all who will believe upon Him.
 
If you are not yet saved, please do not wait to come to our Lord.  Trust in Him, today.
 
We are not guaranteed tomorrow.  It may be too late.
 
 
Until next time...
