Please Stay Here With Me – Song Of The Week

“I’m too busy. I just don’t have any time.” Sound familiar? Well, it does to me, too. Many times we are spread too thin, we say “Yes” too often, or maybe we just don’t stop. We run the kids to school and dance/ball practice, then we have doctor’s appointments, work, church, and then we have to cook supper and wash the dishes and fold the laundry and oh goodness, we forgot to feed Scruffy!

We love God, we appreciate His blessings and we tell Him thanks. We even pray before our meal and might find the time to read a few scriptures or squeeze in a bedtime prayer….that is if we don’t fall asleep. But is it enough?

It’s great to do things for other people, to take care of things, raise children, be a wonderful wife, volunteer, work with your church, etc. And I believe that if you are doing it all in the right spirit, God will honor it. However, I also believe that God truly wants us to take a breath, relax, chill. He longs for us to take a moment (even longer!) and just be with Him…..to simply stay in prayer, in His word, in His presence just a little longer.

So go ahead. Go ahead and allow yourself extra time. I promise you, when it comes to Him, everything else can wait. You may have to cancel something, wake up earlier, or you may even have to –DEEP BREATH HERE– say “No” to some things. It’s completely okay if you don’t say yes every time. Whatever it is in your life that you have to tweak in order to allow yourself the time to simply be with the Lord, it is definitely worth it.

What can I do for you
What can I bring to you
What kind of song would you like me to sing
‘Cause I’ll dance a dance for you
Pour out my love to you
What can I do for you beautiful king
‘Cause I can’t thank you enough
‘Cause I can’t thank you enough

All of the words that I find
and I can’t thank you enough
No matter how I try
and I can’t thank you enough

Then hear you saying to me
Listen you, don’t have to do a thing
Just simply be with me
and let those things go
‘Cause they can wait another minute
Wait, this moment is too sweet
Would you please stay here here with me
And love on me a little longer
’cause I like to be with you a little longer
I love to be with you a little longer
‘Cause I’m in love with you
I’m in love with you
