How Deep??

If you've been following Life with Lynnie (LwL) for a while, you'll know that I almost always have music on my heart and mind.

How it gets there, I do not know.

If a song is with me off and on for a day or so, I don't usually think about how or why it is with me.  However, if it resonates in my mind for a lengthy period of time, or if it won't leave my mind, then I begin to pray about whether or not God is speaking to me.

For more than a week now, I've had a song with me, day and night.

It's by The Bee Gees entitled, How Deep Is Your Lovehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zWP1V9Eo0c.  Below, are the lyrics.

How Deep Is Your Love

I know your eyes in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I wanna feel you in my arms again
And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love
Then softly leave
And it's me you need to show


Chorus:
How deep is your love
I really need to learn
Cause were living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me


I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You're the light in my deepest darkest hour
You're my saviour when I fall
And you may not think I care for you
When you know down inside
That I really do
And it's me you need to show


Chorus

And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love

Then softly leave
And it's me you need to show

Chorus
 
How deep is your love
How deep is your love
I really need to learn
Cause were living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

How deep is your love
How deep is your love
I really need to learn
Cause were living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

When I think of these lyrics, I think about how I love my Lord.  And, how He loves me.

He knows everything about me, because I belong to Him.  He says so, in many verses of His Word, the Bible.

Just as He told us in Psalm 33:13, "The Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men."

As His child, I know He looks down at me.  Just as He does each and every one of His children.  Meaning, those who are saved; those who belong to Him, because they are trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Due to this song residing with me for so long now, I believe He looked down upon me, and decided to remind me about His love for me.  And, remind me that I need to have deep love for Him.

You see, with being ill for close to 19 months, and still awaiting surgery, a few weeks ago I began asking Him why He hasn't yet restored my life.

I know He loves me.  Just as I know God loved David, Job, Joseph, and others.

None of those people were perfect people.  Just as I am not, either.

God restored their lives.  Yet, to date, He has not yet restored mine.

Believe me when I say I've been praying.  Deeply.  

Praying for healing.  For restoration of my life, in general.  And, praying that God will not leave me hanging here, suffering... for much longer.

I believe He is answering my prayer.  And, I praise God for this!


Until next time...
