H.B. B! & Perfect Peace...

Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I would like to let you know that today is my daughter B's birthday.  Happy Birthday, B!  I'm looking forward spending time with you and family members, later today...

Once again, I'll be letting you know that I'll be going to worship with my church family.

For this, I am thankful that I am able to physically do this.  Praise God!

With my brothers and sisters in the Lord, I'll be worshipping in spirit and in truth.  And, through music.

A hymn came to mind, that I adore.  It was written by Frances R. Havergal and is entitled, Like a River Glorious.  Here is a link, so you can listen and/or sing along:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3_E-UasJ1I.  The lyrics are below.

Like a River Glorious

Like a river glorious is God’s perfect peace,
Over all victorious, in its bright increase;
Perfect, yet it floweth fuller every day,
Perfect, yet it groweth deeper all the way.


Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.


Hidden in the hollow of His blessed hand,
Never foe can follow, never traitor stand;
Not a surge of worry, not a shade of care,
Not a blast of hurry touch the spirit there.


Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.


Every joy or trial falleth from above,
Traced upon our dial by the Sun of Love;
We may trust Him fully all for us to do;
They who trust Him wholly find Him wholly true.


Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.


Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest
.

We read in this hymn, that whenever we keep ourselves focused upon God, we are fully blessed.  And, will find perfect peace... and rest.

Just as God's Word, the Bible, tells us in Isaiah 26:3, "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee."

Like this Bible verse states, God will keep anyone in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed upon Him, for anyone who does this, trusts Him.

To be sure, there is nothing greater in life, than knowing that God truly loves us.

Remember, He loved me... and you, so very much that He created a plan of redemption for us.  Then, He sent His only begotten Son to earth, to suffer and pay the price for our sin, so that any person who trusts in/believes upon the Lord, Jesus Christ... will be saved.

For this, I am truly grateful!  Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
