WHAT'S THE RUSH'?

Be anxious for nothing...
 
I had an especially long time with God yesterday. I spent an extended time worshipping, praying and interceding but then I had a longer time just sitting in His presence enjoying Him. He began speaking to me then, telling me how much it meant to Him that I would take the time to be with Him, how special I was to His heart and how much He longed for me to do this more! It was truly awesome, so wonderful! He wants so much for all of us to set aside the time for Him like this. I encourage you to do this. You may have to wrestle with your flesh some. Your thoughts might wander and try to drag you back into the world and earth bound activities. But make the effort, pull your thoughts back to Him and let Him know He means enough to you to really try. There's no telling what He might do or speak into your heart if you will but truly 'disconnect' and let Him have your undivided attention...

SOMEHOW
 
I JUST CAN'T LEAVE
 
I LOVE IT HERE
 
IN THIS LOVELY GARDEN
 
 
WITH YOU
 
SOMEHOW
 
I JUST CAN'T PULL MYSELF AWAY
 
THOUGH THE WORLD OUTSIDE
 
DOES BECKON
 
OH WITH YOU, I WANT TO STAY
 
IN THIS SANCTUARY
 
IN THIS SECRET PLACE
 
I JUST WANT TO LINGER
 
NOT PASSING BACK
 
THROUGH THAT GATE
 
HUNGERING, THIRSTING
 
FOR WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY
 
 
NOW I HAVE YOU HERE WITH ME
 
YOU CAME AS I DID WAIT...
 
OH LINGER HERE A LITTLE LONGER
 
MY SWEET LORD,  I PRAY....
