Honey...

If you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) for any amount of time, you're probably aware that music is truly part of me.  I believe God uses it, also.

For several days now, I've woken up with a song on my heart and mind.  It resonated within me, for days. 

I believe it was written by Mel Tillis and is entitled, Honey Won't You Open That Door.  Here is a link for you to listen to and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTGiD8W57ZU.  The lyrics are below.

Honey Won't You Open That Door

Honey, Honey
Honey won't you open that door
This is your sweet daddy don't you love me no more?
It's cold outside let me sleep on the floor
Honey won't you open that door

I honky-tonked around Dallas
Got in a poker game
Somebody must've been a-cheatin'
I lost everything but my name
Well I walked halfway to Memphis
Finally got back home
I'd have been better off where I was
'cause here's where things went wrong

Honey, Honey
Honey won't you open that door
This is your sweet daddy don't you love me no more?
It's cold outside let me sleep on the floor
Honey won't you open that door

I went downtown to see 'ol Bob
Thought he was my friend
The landlord said that Bob's not here
"The Police done hauled him in!"
I ran right back to little honey's house
I got me a rockin' chair
"now honey if you don't open that door
I'm gonna rock on away from here"
Honey, Honey
Honey won't you open that door
This is your sweet daddy don't you love me no more?
It's cold outside let me sleep on the floor
Honey won't you open that door

Honey (Honey)
Honey (Honey)
Honey (Honey)
Honey (Honey)
Honey won't you open that door?


Why this song is within me, and has been for quite a while now, I truly cannot say.

If God is speaking to me through this song, I am wondering what door it is He wants me to open.  Especially, since I have already opened the door to Him, and He is part of my life.

This brought to mind, Revelation 3:20, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."

How grateful I am that He loves me so very much.  So much, that He knocked on my door.

How thankful I am that I opened the door to Him.  And, am thankful that He is with me, always.

Is God with you?

Many people have knowledge about God's Word, the Bible.  But, not all have that personal relationship with our Lord, Jesus Christ.

It is that personal relationship with Jesus, that brings us to our knees, and causes us to repent.

Friend, if you have not yet done this, I pray you will. 


Until next time...
