Everlasting!

Once again, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) I'm letting you know that I am going to join my church family to worship God.  In spirit and in truth.  Just like normal.

Of course, I'll be heading to our Bible study/Adult Sunday school class, that happens before our worship service.

As I mentioned yesterday, I felt rather heartbroken throughout much of this week.  On both Tuesday, and on Thursday. 

When I went to bed Thursday night... well, actually Friday morning, since it was in the middle of the night, I thought I would sleep soundly.  However, I didn't.

When I awoke about every hour, music that honoured God resonated within me.  Hymn after hymn.  Song after song.  Different, every time.

The last time I woke up, and got up for the day, some music stayed with me.

It was written by Brenton Brown and Ken Riley and is entitled, Everlasting God.  Here is a YouTube link sung by Chris Tomlinhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gZ2LeFTQ4I.  The lyrics are below.

Everlasting God

Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord, we will wait upon the Lord
Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord, we will wait upon the Lord


Our God, You reign forever
Our hope, our Strong Deliverer


You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint
You won't grow weary


Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord, we will wait upon the Lord
Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord, we will wait upon the Lord


Our God, You reign forever
Our hope, our Strong Deliverer


You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint
You won't grow weary


You're the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on the wings
Like eagles


Our God, You reign forever
Our hope, our Strong Deliverer


'Cause You are, You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint
You won't grow weary


You're the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on the wings
Like eagles


From everlasting to everlasting
God, You are everlasting

Thinking about how short life truly is, here in this world, and thinking about how long life is, after we've left this world, made me think about God. 

After all, He is always there for us.  And, gives to His children everlasting life.

Thinking of this, brought to mind what Jesus said, in John 6:40, "And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day."

Wow!  Isn't it truly amazing, how God will give His children who believe upon His son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, everlasting life?!  Plus, we His children, will be raised up by Him, on the last day!

To me, this is just so very amazing.

Amazing grace.  Amazing love, from God, to be sure.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
