A Little Longer

The title of this post is actually unoriginal on my part. It’s the title of one of my favorite songs, and it goes like this:

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, I can’t thank You enough. Then I hear You sing to me… You sing “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 with Me and love on Me a little longer, ’cause I’d like to be with you a little longer. I’d love to be with you a little longer, cause I’m in love with you.”

It’s by Brian and Jenn Johnson. Listen to it if you haven’t. May our hearts maintain this attitude in all seasons; may we desire nothing more than to lay down everything we are and all that we have at the feet of Jesus in exchange for more of Him; may we want HIS desires to be fulfilled and HIS plans to prevail, and not our own; may we relish in the beauty that is His presence, and rest humbly in the knowledge that He simply wants US; may we love Him with all that we are because He first loved us, and loves us completely; and may we overflow with thanksgiving because He is so beyond any meaning of the word “good”.

Stay in awe.
