Speak, O Lord...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I will once again let you know how grateful I am that I am healed enough, to not have to stay home.

I am truly grateful that I can sit up, move around, and even drive, once again.  Thank You, Lord!

Being SONday, our Lord's Day, I will once again make my way to worship with my brothers and sisters in Christ, at Walkerville Evangelical Baptist Church, where I am a member.

As I've said in the past, I enjoy worshipping God.  With my church family, I will worship Him in spirit and in truth.  And, through music.

A song came to mind, that I thought you might enjoy. 

It's written by Keith Getty & Stuart Townend, and is sung by Kristyn Getty.  It's entitled, Speak, O Lord.  Here is a link for you to listen and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGg40zKRvAg.  The lyrics are below.

Speak, O Lord

Speak, O Lord, as we come to You
To receive the food of Your Holy Word.
Take Your truth, plant it deep in us;
Shape and fashion us in Your likeness,
That the light of Christ might be seen today
In our acts of love and our deeds of faith.
Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us
All Your purposes for Your glory.

Teach us, Lord, full obedience,
Holy reverence, true humility;
Test our thoughts and our attitudes
In the radiance of Your purity.
Cause our faith to rise; cause our eyes to see
Your majestic love and authority.
Words of pow'r that can never fail -
Let their truth prevail over unbelief.

Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds;
Help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us -
Truths unchanged from the dawn of time
That will echo down through eternity.
And by grace we'll stand on Your promises,
And, by faith we'll walk as You walk with us.
Speak, O Lord, till Your church is built
And the earth is filled with your glory.

God's speaks to us through His Word, the Bible.

He teaches us.  And, fills our hearts and mind, with His Word.  So that we can be educated as to what God wants us to know.

Just as we read in 2 Timothy 3:16, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:"

His Word teaches us what we need to do, and how we need to think. 

He leads us through conviction, through repentance, and into righteousness.  This can only be done by reading His Word, the Bible, and coming to Christ.

Have you come to Christ?

Hopefully, you have.  If so, I will one day meet you, either here on earth, or in Heaven. 

If not, I suggest you come to Christ today.  Believe upon/trust in Jesus, is all you need to do.  Tomorrow, may be too late.


Until next time...
