Dad & Somebody Like Me...

Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I'd like to say that if my dad were alive, today would be his birthday.  Since he's not here on earth, I cannot wish him... Happy Birthday!  But, I think of him...

As I'm sure you realize, today is our Lord's Day.  A day of worship.

Since I enjoy worshipping through music, in addition to worshipping with church family, I decided to share some music with you.

The music is by Jason Crabb and is entitled, Somebody Like Me.  Here is a link, for you to click on to listen to it and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fC-MyglVbCc&feature=youtu.be.  The lyrics are below.

Somebody Like Me

The congregation parted like the Red Sea
When that old drunk stumbled in down the aisle
And took a seat
Right in the middle of Amazing Grace


He could feel the judgment they were passing
Thought to himself "Ain't that just how some folks acting"
He'd rather be on the street than in this place
And with tears on his face


You'd think somebody would put their arm around him
You'd think somebody would hit a knee
Pull him in, say a prayer
That's what I'm talking 'bout right there


You'd think somebody would practice what they're preachin'
Well, I wonder who that somebody could be
Probably somebody like me


Well, he's got problems nobody wants a part of
When he got up and slipped out nobody stood up
They don't wanna make a scene
So they let him walk outta there without a prayer


You'd think somebody would do something different
You'd think somebody would go against the grain
Be the one to run him down
Bring him back and turn him around


You'd think somebody would wanna make a difference
Well, well I wonder who that somebody could be
Probably somebody like me


Oh can I get a witness
Oh yeah


You'd think somebody would put their arm around him
You'd think somebody would hit a knee now
Pull him in, say a prayer yeah


You'd think somebody would put their arm around him
You'd think somebody would hit a knee
Pull him in, say a prayer
That's what I'm talking 'bout right there


You'd think somebody would wanna make a difference
Well, I wonder who that somebody could be
Probably somebody like me


Amen!

Somebody would wanna made a difference.  

It could be you.  Or, it could be me.  

But, truthfully, it would be our Lord. 

After all, our faith is so important to Him.

Much like we read, in Romans 12:6, "Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;"

Amen!  Receiving gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith.

No matter what we deal with in life, and no matter what we receive from others, we need to look to our Lord, through faith.

I do.

Do you?

If you do, I know you'll be blessed.


Until next time...
