Waiting For You...

As you are probably aware, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I discuss music from time to time.  Like, today.

A song has been resonating in my mind, lately.

It's a song by Richard Marx entitled, Right Here Waiting For You.  Here is a link for you to listen and/or sing along:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2SwgfKBnH0.  The lyrics, are below.

Right Here Waiting For You

Oceans apart day after day
And I slowly go insane
I hear your voice on the line
But it doesn't stop the pain

If I see you next to never
How can we say forever

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I took for granted, all the times
That I thought would last somehow
I hear the laughter, I taste the tears
But I can't get near you now

Oh, can't you see it baby
You've got me going crazy

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I wonder how we can survive
This romance
But in the end if I'm with you
I'll take the chance

Oh, can't you see it baby
You've got me going crazy

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you
Waiting for you


Waiting for you

Once again, I must say that even though this is a secular song, I feel drawn to it.  For some reason, whenever I think about music/lyrics of secular songs, I still think about my Lord.

When I thought about this song, I related it to Him, even though it's not truly about Him.

I thought about how my life has been filled with trials.  Some harder than others.

And, I thought about how my heart breaks, from time to time. 

But then, God always fills my heart and mind with His truth.  And, His love and direction.

He lifts me up.  He encourages me.  Even when I feel low in spirit.

Just as we read in Isaiah 40:28-31, "Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

We are only human, and not gods.  He is God.  And, He is in control.

Just as we read in today's Bible verses, He gives power to those who need strength.  To those who are weary.

How I praise God that I wait upon Him.  And, Him... alone.

Because of this, He helps me, daily.  And, will help you daily, too... if you belong to Him. 

How does this happen?

In order to belong to Him, we must believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Then, we will be saved.  (Acts 16:31).  Hallelujah!


Until next time...
