Mercy Me!

If you know me personally, or have read Life with Lynnie (LwL) for any amount of time, you'll know that I would like to go and worship my God. 

Especially, since this is Sonday.  My Lord's Day.  But, I cannot, due to my health and recovery issues.  So, I will worship at home, once again.

In case you're not aware, I am a member on Facebook (FB).

If you are a FB friend of mine, you'll know that from time to time, music is posted by others on my FB wall/timeline.

A friend of mine recently posted a Christian song by the group called Mercy Me entitled, Homesick.  Here is a link to listen and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3k1rJOQPdY.  The lyrics are below.

Homesick

You're in a better place, I've heard a thousand times
And at least a thousand times I've rejoiced for you
But the reason why I'm broken, the reason why I cry
Is how long must I wait to be with you

I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now

Help me Lord cause I don't understand your ways
The reason why I wonder if I'll ever know
But, even if you showed me, the hurt would be the same
Cause I'm still here so far away from home

I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now

In Christ, there are no goodbyes
And in Christ, there is no end
So I'll hold onto Jesus with all that I have
To see you again
To see you again

And I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow

I've never been more homesick than now 


When it was posted on my wall/timeline on FB, I listened and found this song to be beautiful. 

I'd never heard it, before.  But, was glad I was given the link to it.

It reminded me that while life isn't always like how we'd like it to be, God is there for us.  He is there for, and helps those of us, who belong to Him. 

Just as we are told in Psalm 121:2, "My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth."

Yes, He gives us the strength and help we need, daily.

How grateful I am that He loves me.  That He helps me.  And, gives me strength in every aspect of my life.

After all, life isn't easy.  But, God is good.


Until next time...
