Be My...

Once again, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'm discussing the fact that I would love to be able to go worship God.  But, can't at the moment, because I cannot drive to meet with my church family.

Even so, I do my best to worship Him, while I'm at home. 

Prayer, reading my Bible, and thinking of and/or singing music, is how I manage to worship.

Thinking of music, here is a link to read about Be Thou My Visionhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Be_Thou_My_Vision.  It is a traditional Irish hymn, attributed to Dallan Forgaill.  The lyrics have changed over the years, as I'm sure you just read.  However, below are the lyrics from the recorded version posted, today.

Be Thou My Vision

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.


Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee, Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, and I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.


Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.


Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.


High King of Heaven, after victory won,
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.


Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.


Yes, my Lord is my vision.  He is Lord of my heart.  And, more.

Just as we read in Psalm 27:1, "The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?"

He's my light.  And, my salvation.

He gives me strength, every day.  How grateful I am for this!

Of whom shall I be afraid?

No one!

He provides for my every need.  Thank You, Lord!

He provides for your every need, also; well, as long as you are trusting in Him.  Remember, if you believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, you shall be saved (Acts 16:31).


Until next time...
