waiting here for you

i want to be close

I need to be alone with You this morning, Lord.
My heart aches for You. I am in desperate need for the refreshing only spending time with You can bring.

Draw near to Me, and I will draw near to you. Pull on the strings of My heart for I long to be close to you. – Bethel Music

The loneliness which comes in waves only ebbs away when Your heart beats next to mine.

Strip everything away til all I have is You. Undo the veil til all I see is You. I will pursue You, I will pursue Your Presence. – Jesus Culture

As I deliberately pursue you, I find that all along I have been the one being pursued.

tethered hearts

While I rest in Your Presence, I find myself enthralled again with Your nearness and embrace.

It’s amazing how You take me just for who I am. In the valleys and in the mountains, I’m always in Your hands. – Steffany Gretzinger

There is no separation between us when I come to You, for not only do You make the way clear for me, You cleanse me and whisper in loving tones how much you desire to be with me!

Unreserved, unrestrained, Your love is wild. Your love is wild for me! It isn’t shy, it’s unashamed, Your love is proud to be seen with me! – Amanda Cook

As I come back to life again from under the shadow of Your wings, I determine to keep myself close to You throughout my day. Reminding myself:

  • You are but a split second of a thought away
  • When I make pursuing You my priority, You will direct me to the right way ahead as I closely follow You.
