Give...

With today being SONday, I'm letting you know here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) that I'll be heading to worship with my church family.  Just as I try to do, on every Lord's Day.

Once again, I will worship in spirit and in truth.  And, through music.

Like some that Don Moen recorded entitled, Give Thanks.  Here is a link for you to listen and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMTmZKotTYw.  The lyrics are below.

Give Thanks

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son

And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"

And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son

And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"

And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"
Give thanks

We give thanks to You oh Lord
We give thanks


As I said in the past, from September 30th, throughout most of October, it is a very stressful time for me.

Broken-heartedness isn't easy. 

Nor is pain.  Physical, and from issues that affect life. 

Like what happened on our Canadian election day.  And, how I believe it will hurt our lives, within time.

Sometimes people think I'm just looking to my life here on earth, when I feel overwhelmed, and speak up/out.  But, that's not what I do.

At times when I know things will affect my life, and speak up/out, I sometimes feel awful.  But then... I look up, and thank God.

Thinking of this, made me think of Ephesians 5:20, "Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;"

Giving thanks to God our Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, is necessary.

Not just because He told us to, in His Word, the Bible.  But, also because He truly loves us.

After all, God created His plan of redemption, to provide for us a way of salvation.  So, that we can spend eternity with Him, in Heaven, instead of being separated from God and spending eternity in Hell, with no chance of escape.

For this, I am thankful.  And, I'm thankful that our Lord, Jesus Christ came to earth to fulfill God the Father's plan of redemption.

By doing so, we now can gain salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Thankful?

Yes, I'm thankful. 

Hopefully, you are also.


Until next time...
