Go, Say, Be...

Being our Lord's Day, I'll discuss something here on Life with Lynnie (LwL). 

We all need to worship, today.  God expects us to do that.

I will.  Hopefully, you will also.

Of course, in addition to worshipping in spirit and in truth, I also enjoy worshipping through music.

The hymn I'm sharing with you today, is by Mary Brown and Carrie E. Rounsefell and is entitled, I'll Go Where You Want Me To Go.  Here's the link, so you can listen to and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWf-fJVfZZo.  The lyrics are below.

I'll Go Where You Want Me To Go

It may not be on the mountain height
Or over the stormy sea,
It may not be at the battle's front
My Lord will have need of me.
But if by a still, small voice he calls
To paths that I do not know,
I'll answer, dear Lord, with my hand in thine:
I'll go where you want me to go.

I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord,
Over mountain or plain or sea;
I'll say what you want me to say, dear Lord;
I'll be what you want me to be.

Perhaps today there are loving words
Which Jesus would have me speak;
There may be now in the paths of sin
Some wand'rer whom I should seek.
O Savior, if thou wilt be my guide,
Tho dark and rugged the way,
My voice shall echo the message sweet:
I'll say what you want me to say.

I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord,
Over mountain or plain or sea;
I'll say what you want me to say, dear Lord;
I'll be what you want me to be.

There's surely somewhere a lowly place
In earth's harvest fields so wide
Where I may labor through life's short day
For Jesus, the Crucified.
So trusting my all to thy tender care,
And knowing thou lovest me,
I'll do thy will with a heart sincere:
I'll be what you want me to be.

I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord,
Over mountain or plain or sea;
I'll say what you want me to say, dear Lord;
I'll be what you want me to be.

I'll say what you want me to say, dear Lord:
I'll be what you want me to be.
I'll be what you want me to be.

(This lyrics ending was written, but not recorded:
I'll go where you want me to go;
I'll say what you want me to say;
I'll be what you want me to be.)

Just as the lyrics state, I'll do thy will with a heart sincere, I'll be what you want me to be. 

Yes, I truly do what I believe He wants me to do.

After all, He does tell us what He wants us to do.

Thinking of this, made me think of Psalm 32:8, "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye."

He instructs us, and teaches us in the way we shall go: He guides us with His eye.

Knowing that our Lord instructs and teaches us, it means to me that we need to be what He wants us to be.

I do whatever I can to be what He wants me to be.

Are you doing that?

If so, you'll be blessed.


Until next time...
