Sit with God

I absolutely love this song “If I could just sit with you a while” written by Mercy Me, and covered by Todd Agnew in this video. It speaks of a hurting Christian kneeling before God and giving his life to him. What a beautiful line: “Lord, you are my life, so I don’t mind to die, just as long as I am hidden in you“. This simple song speaks volumes to me these days.

Here is a video of the song.

If I could just sit with you a while. If you could just hold me. Nothing could touch me, though I’m wounded, though I die. If I could just sit with you a while. I need you to hold me. Moment by moment ’till forever passes by.

When I cannot feel. When my wounds don’t heal. Lord I humbly kneel, hidden in you. Lord, You are my life, so I don’t mind to die, just as long as I am hidden in you.

If I could just sit with you a while. If you could just hold me. Nothing could touch me, though I’m wounded, though I die. If I could just sit with you a while. I need you to hold me. Moment by moment ’till forever passes by.

When I know I’ve sinned, and I could’ve been crying out: “my God” and hidden in you. Lord I need you now, more than I know how. So I humbly bow, hidden in you.

If I could just sit with you a while. If you could just hold me. Nothing could touch me, though I’m wounded, though I die. If I could just sit with you a while. I need you to hold me. Moment by moment ’till forever passes by

Bring the rain

I really enjoy the lyrics to this Mercy Me song Bring The Rain that I stumbled across on youtube.com. It’s a song that shows a mature believer’s attitude to God and his leading in my life. The chorus goes like this: “Bring me joy, bring me peace, bring the chance to be free, bring me anything that brings You glory. And I know there’ll be days when this life brings me pain. But if that’s what it takes to praise You, Jesus bring the rain“.

The apostle Paul put the same truth in more theological terms in Romans 5:2-5 “(…) we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, who he has given us” 

Here is a video with the song:

Torben – who wants to grow more and more in understanding that God truly and always knows what’s best for me, even when I don’t understand or agree!
