Last year God rocked my heart by introducing me to this song.
Jenn Jonhson- A little longer
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 for You
What can I do for You beautiful King
‘Cause I can’t thank You enough
‘Cause I can’t thank You enough
Then I hear You say
You don’t have to do a thing
Simply be with Me and let those things go
They can wait another minute
Wait this moment is too sweet
Please stay here with me
And love on Me a little longer
‘Cause I’m in love with you
So I’ll wait here at Your feet
It’s where I want to be
Your voice I’ll follow
Jesus You are everything to me
And I’ll pour out my life
Worship at Your feet
Love on You a little longer
‘Cause I’m in love with You
I heard her story behind writing this song and it Rocked me to my very core.
It overwhelmed me because you can really feel her and God’s heart in this song!
Even while writing this i feel such an overwhelming love, tears of joy and His presence while listening to her song. I could listen to this song for the rest of the day!
It’s such a revelation when you as a Christian find out it’s not about yourself. It’s about God and everyone except yourself. Sometimes God shows me moments in my life when i was younger when i still thought it was all about me, myself and i.
There are days where i still need to look in the mirror and not try to see me… but look at myself and see His son. But i’m growing and stretching, at first it hurts because of the growing pains and stretching pains, but now i enjoy it. It doesn’t hurt anymore because of the different perspectives you grow in to when you get revelation and when you are willing to renew your mind.
You see.., You are not a Christian for what God can do for you…
Romans 12:3The Message (MSG)
3 I’m speaking to you out of deep gratitude for all that God has given me, and especially as I have responsibilities in relation to you. Living then, as every one of you does, in pure grace, it’s important that you not misinterpret yourselves as people who are bringing this goodness to God. No, God brings it all to you. The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him.
The fact is that He already GAVE His Son, let’s be intimate with the One Who Gave. Not go into a relationship so we can get. Let’s take the time to just be still and listen to Him.., how will we ever hear Him if we’re the ones always talking about our problems and issues? Let’s be interested in Who He is.
Let’s be Jesus followers who deeply care about what our Father cares for. Let’s put Him first in everything, let’s look in the mirror and see Jesus. Let’s take responsibility for the trail we leave behind and the ceiling our children walk on as their strong foundation.
Do we look at other people and see Him?
I know this can be hard, but let’s grow together!
