Constantly...

I'm sure you're not surprised that here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'm letting you know that I am going to spend time with my church family.  And, with my granddaughter, A.

After all, today is our Lord's Day!

We worship in spirit, and in truth.  Just as I've said in the past.  And, just as the Bible tells us to do.

But, I also am happy we worship through music, as well.

Here is a hymn that we have sung.  It's was by Anne S. Murphy and is entitled, Constantly Abiding.  Here is a link for you to listen and/or sing along: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqBG5Kn_vmM.  The lyrics are below.

Constantly Abiding

There’s a peace in my heart that the world never gave,
A peace it cannot take away;
Though the trials of life may surround like a cloud,
I’ve a peace that has come here to stay!

Constantly abiding, Jesus is mine;
Constantly abiding, rapture divine;
He never leaves me lonely, whispers, O so kind:
“I will never leave thee,” Jesus is mine.

All the world seems to sing of a Savior and King,
When peace sweetly came to my heart;
Troubles all fled away and my night turned to day,
Bless├Ęd Jesus, how glorious Thou art!

Constantly abiding, Jesus is mine;
Constantly abiding, rapture divine;
He never leaves me lonely, whispers, O so kind:
“I will never leave thee,” Jesus is mine.

This treasure I have in a temple of clay,
While here on His footstool I roam;
But He’s coming to take me some glorious day,
Over there to my heavenly home!

Constantly abiding, Jesus is mine;
Constantly abiding, rapture divine;
He never leaves me lonely, whispers, O so kind:
“I will never leave thee,” Jesus is mine.

“I will never leave thee,”... Jesus is mine.

Yes, Jesus is mine. 

And, He has me here doing work for Him.

Just as we read, in John 17:18, "As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world."

We were sent into this world.

We are to do what He would have us do.  Just as I'm doing.

Even though other people don't always agree.

Is this upsetting to me?  No. 

What others think, doesn't really matter to me.  For I do what God would have me do.

I do this to honour and glorify Him... constantly.


Until next time...
