As Long As I Have You...

Hopefully, you read the posting I made here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), on Saturday, April 16th.  If not, you may want to click here, and check it out:  http://www.lifewithlynnie.com/2016/04/as-long.html.

If you did, you'll know that there was a song on the Elvis Presley movie, King Creole entitled, As Long As I Have You.  Here is a link for you to listen to and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPsEQnRziPk.  The lyrics are below.

As Long As I Have You

Let the stars fade and fall
And I won't care at all
As long as I have you

Every kiss brings a thrill
And I know that it will
As long as I have you

Let's think of the future
Forget the past
You're not my first love
But you're my last
Take the love that I bring
Then I'll have everything
As long as I have you

Let's think of the future
Forget the past
You're not my first love
But you're my last
Take the love that I bring
Then I'll have everything
As long as I have you

As long, as long as I have you


When I heard this song in the movie, my heart was truly touched.

No.  Not because I have someone to love, who loves me.  I am a widow.  I don't have anyone in my life.

However, the lyrics made me think of Jesus.

He wasn't my first love, even though I began loving him when I was about four and a half (4 1/2) years old.  But, He's my last love.

Love that will always be with me.

You see, I will always love Him.  And, I know He will always love me.

Thinking of this brought to mind, Psalm 18:1, "I will love thee, O Lord, my strength."

Yes, I love Him.  He is my strength.

He helps me every day of my life.  And, through every trial in my life.

Hopefully, He is this to you, also.

If so, when you love Him, He'll be your strength.


Until next time...
