Tomorrow? Today...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), today is when I usually mention something.

It's our day of worship!

I worship.  Do you?  Hopefully, so.

This day is also a day when I share music.  After all, I also like to worship through music.

Today's music is by Diana Ross that is entitled, Touch Me In The Morning:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckWYk4_31GU.  If you click on the link, you can listen and/or sing along.  The lyrics are below.

Touch Me In The Morning

Touch me in the morning
Then just walk away
We don't have tomorrow
But we had yesterday

Wasn't it me who said that Nothing good's gonna last forever?
And wasn't it me who said, Let's just be glad for the time together?
It must've been hard to tell me
That you've given all you had to give
I can understand you're feeling that way
Everybody's got their life to live

Well, I can say goodbye in the cold morning light
But I can't watch love die in the warmth of the night
If I've got to be strong
Don't you know I need to have tonight when you're gone?
Till you go I need to lie here and think about
The last time that you'll touch me in the morning
Then just close the door
Leave me as you found me, empty like before

Wasn't it yesterday We used to laugh at the wind behind us?
Didn't we run away and hope that time wouldn't try to find us (Didn't we run)
Didn't we take each other to a place where no one's ever been?
Yeah, I really need you near me tonight
'Cause you'll never take me there again

Let me watch you go with the sun in my eyes
We've seen how love can grow
Now we'll see how it dies
If I've got to be strong
Don't you know I need to have tonight when you're gone?
Till you go I need to hold you until the time
Your hands reach out and touch me
In the morning (Mornings where blue and gold and we could feel one another living)
Then just walk away (We walked with a dream to hold and we could take what the world was giving)
We don't have tomorrow (There's no tomorrow here, there's only love and the time to chase it)
But we had yesterday
(But yesterday's gone my love, there's only now and it's time to face it) touch me in the morning

Yes, we had yesterday.  Gordon and I, when he was alive. 

Why did I decide to share this music with you?  After all, it's not Christian.

For some reason, it was on my heart and mind, day after day, after day, after day... for quite a while.  Even though it was a while ago.  It was during a time when I truly was missing Gordon, my husband who died close to 10 years ago.

Why this happened so much, I didn't know.  At first, I thought that maybe my deceased husband, Gordon was touching me with that music.

But, eventually I realized that God was helping me.

He was helping me to deal with the grief I felt.  And, feeling brokenhearted.

After all, God has told us that we do NOT have to think about tomorrow. 

That reminded me of Matthew 6:3134, "Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.".

Amen!  Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.

Just as I've mentioned many times in the past, life isn't easy.  But, God is good.

He truly loves us.  And, doesn't want us to think of tomorrow.

We need to do what we can... today.  And, He will help us... who belong to Him.

I belong to Him.  How?  By trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  

Do you?  If you have done what I did, then you will have gained salvation, everlasting life, and love... from God.

For Him addressing that issue with me that I discussed today, I'm truly thankful.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
