Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I'd like to wish my grandson, D... and his girlfriend, W... Happy Birthday! Yes... they both have today as their birthday! I'll be happy to spend time with you, both. Happy Birthday!
Today, is not just a special family day. It's also a day of worship.
So, I'll share some music with you.
As I've said in the past, Keith Getty is from N. Ireland, where my grandmother and great-grandmother came from. He may be a family member of many generations.
Even so, I'm sharing music by him, and Stuart Townend entitled, Speak O Lord; it's sung by Kristyn Getty. If you'd like to listen and/or sing along, click on this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubRlJj8xkds
Speak O Lord
Speak, O Lord, as we come to You
To receive the food of Your Holy Word.
Take Your truth, plant it deep in us;
Shape and fashion us in Your likeness,
That the light of Christ might be seen today
In our acts of love and our deeds of faith.
Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us
All Your purposes for Your glory.
Teach us, Lord, full obedience,
Holy reverence, true humility;
Test our thoughts and our attitudes
In the radiance of Your purity.
Cause our faith to rise; cause our eyes to see
Your majestic love and authority.
Words of pow’r that can never fail—
Let their truth prevail over unbelief.
Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds;
Help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us—
Truths unchanged from the dawn of time
That will echo down through eternity.
And by grace we’ll stand on Your promises,
And by faith we’ll walk as You walk with us.
Speak, O Lord, till Your church is built
And the earth is filled with Your glory.
This music truly touches my heart.
It speaks to our Lord. And, asks Him to speak with us, and teach us.
Just as we read, in Colossians 3:16, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."
He teaches us, always.
As long as we read God's Word, the Bible.
Until next time...
