The Lighthouse...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I do my best to honour and glorify God.

Being my Lord's Day, I decided to honour and glorify Him, once again.  Not just by praising Him and worshipping Him in spirit and in truth.  But, also through music, once again.

A friend posted on Google+ this song by The Hinsons entitled, The Lighthouse.  I had never heard it before, but adored it.  Here is a link for you to listen and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyxUUPHkDhE#t=15.  The lyrics, are below.

The Lighthouse

There's a lighthouse on a hillside
That overlooks life's sea.
When I'm tossed it sends out a light,
A light that I might see.
And the light that shines in darkness now
Will safely lead us o'er.
If it wasn't for the lighthouse,
 I know my ship would be no more.

Everybody that lives around us
They all say tear that lighthouse down.
The big ships don't sail this way anymore,
There's no use of it standing around.
Then my mind goes back to that stormy night,
When just in time thank God I saw the light;
Yes the light from that old lighthouse
That stands up there on the hill.

And I thank God for the lighthouse,
I owe my life to Him.
For Jesus is the lighthouse
And from the rocks of sin;
He has shone a light around me
That I could clearly see,
If it wasn't for the lighthouse
Tell me where would this ship be.

And I thank God for the lighthouse,
I owe my life to Him.
For Jesus is the lighthouse
And from the rocks of sin;
He has shone His light around me
That I could clearly see,
If it wasn't for the lighthouse
Where would this ship be.

 If it wasn't for the lighthouse,
Tell me, where would this ship be?

Yes, I thank God for the lighthouse.  For Jesus is our lighthouse!  Just as the lyrics tell us.

He is our light and our salvation.

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?"

Whom shall I fear?  There is no reason to fear anyone, here.

Jesus is my strength and my rock.  He leads me, guides me, and lifts me up even when I'm experiencing trauma in my life.

For this, I'll always be grateful!

Grateful for His love.  Grateful for salvation, by trusting in/believing upon my Lord, Jesus Christ. 

I know after my life ends here on earth, I'll spend eternity in Heaven with Him. 

Will you?  Are you saved? 

If not, come to Christ, today.  We are not guaranteed, tomorrow.

We're not even guaranteed our next breath.


Until next time...
