It's All About You! 2/14/16




HAPPY VALENTINE DAY!!

I LOVE YOU!

Nehemiah 8:10 (KJV)
10  Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

THIS DAY IS HOLY UNTO OUR LORD!!

NEITHER BE YE SORRY!!!

FOR THE JOY OF THE LORD IS YOUR STRENGTH!!!

And NO, I am NOT talking about Valentine Day!!!

TODAY is just another day in this journey called life!!

I woke up (PTL for waking up AGAIN), to the usual, THANK GOD!

Amanda crying, others UN-happy with who I am and NEVER able to make everybody happy!!

AMEN!!??

But I WOKE UP thinking about a silly song I used to perform at Church entitled:

" I'VE GOT THAT JOY, JOY, JOY, DOWN IN MY HEART!"

Do you remember its silly, BUT truthful lyrics???

" I'VE GOT THAT JOY, JOY, JOY, JOY DOWN IN MY HEART!

WHERE?

DOWN IN MY HEART!

WHERE?

DOWN IN MY HEART!

I'VE GOT THAT JOY, JOY, JOY, JOY DOWN IN MY HEART!

DOWN IN MY HEART TO STAY!

SECOND VERSE:

I'VE GOT THE LOVE OF JESUS DOWN IN MY HEART!

WHERE??

THIRD VERSE:

I'VE GOT THE PEACE THAT PASSES UNDERSTANDING!

WHERE?

LAST VERSE:

I'VE GOT THAT WONDERFUL LOVE OF THAT BLESSED REDEEMER WAY DOWN IN THE DEPTHS OF MY HEART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WHERE?

DOWN IN MY HEART TO STAY!!

Now, if you have ever herd or sang this song, IT is "WAY DOWN IN THE DEPTHS OF YOUR HEART NOW"

SHO NUFF'!!!

You see, JOY is, as my dear friend Ronnie J. posted Friday, NOT happiness!!!

JOY is simply this:

Jesus

Others

Yourself!

J-O-Y!!! JESUS-OTHERS-YOURSELF!!

That is the ONLY order where one CAN find SATISFACTION "in this life!"

If my memory holds correct, that was the underlying theme of Rick Warren's EXCELLENT book, "THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE!"

It has been several years since and read and re-read this book, but I DO remember a line, I believe?, he wrote:

" IT (life) is not about YOU!!!

The quicker WE realize and understand this concept, the quicker JOY will flood OUR hearts!

I close this VALENTINE DAY message with a SONG I hope/PRAY you take the time to listen to and HEED its lyrics:

HEART OF WORSHIP

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0a9T0UtJBQ 

When the music fades
All is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring
Something that's of worth
That will bless your heart
I'll bring you more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what you have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You're looking into my heart
I'm coming back to the heart of worship
And it's all about you,
It's all about you, Jesus
I'm sorry, Lord, for the thing I've made it
When it's all about you,
It's all about you, Jesus
King of endless worth
No one could express
How much you deserve
Though I'm weak and poor
All I have is yours
Every single breath
I'll bring you more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what you have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You're looking into my heart
I'm coming back to the heart of worship
And it's all about you,
It's all about you, Jesus
I'm sorry, lord, for the thing I've made it
And it's all about you,
It's all about you, Jesus
I'm coming back to the heart of worship,
And it's all about you,
It's all about you, Jesus
I'm sorry, Lord, for the thing I've made it
And it's all about you,
It's all about you, Jesus
It's all about you
It's all about you
It's all about you
It's all about you
It's all about you
It's all about you
It's all about you
It's all about you
It's all about you
It's all about you
I'm coming back to the heart of worship
And it's all about you,
It's all about you, Jesus
I'm sorry, lord, for the thing I've made it
And it's all about you,
It's all about you, Jesus

TODAY, IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU, JESUS!


HAPPY VALENTINE JESUS!!
