Worship Wednesday…Nothing Else

 

I’m caught up in Your presence
I just want to sit here at Your feet
I’m caught up in this holy moment
I never want to leave

Oh, I’m not here for blessings
Jesus, You don’t owe me anything
More than anything that You can do
I just want You

I’m sorry when I’ve just gone through the motions
I’m sorry when I just sang another song
Take me back to where we started
I open up my heart to You
I’m sorry when I’ve come with my agenda
I’m sorry when I forgot that You’re enough
Take me back to where we started
I open up my heart to You

I’m caught up in Your presence
I just want to sit here at Your feet
I’m caught up in this holy moment
I never want to leave

Oh, I’m not here for blessings
Jesus, You don’t owe me anything
And more than anything that You can do
I just want You

I just want You
Nothing else, nothing else
Nothing else will do
I just want You
Nothing else, nothing else
Nothing else will do
I just want You
Nothing else, nothing else
Nothing else will do
I just want You
Nothing else, nothing else, Jesus
Nothing else will do
I just want You
Nothing else, nothing else
Nothing else will do
I just want You
Nothing else, nothing else, Jesus
Nothing else will do

I’m coming back to where we started
I’m coming back to where we started
When I first felt Your love
You’re all that matters, Jesus
You’re all that matters
I’m coming back to what really matters
Just Your heart
I just want to bless Your heart, Jesus

I’m caught up in Your presence
I just want to sit here at Your feet
I’m caught up in this holy moment
I never want to leave

And oh, I’m not here for blessings
Jesus, You don’t owe me anything
More than anything that You can do
Oh, I just want You

A Word for Those Who Feel Unseen

Okay, here I go. I am about to admit something that I rarely say out loud. It’s something that I feel shame and guilt about. It’s something that I wish with everything in me wasn’t as big an issue as it is. But I’ve been wanting and needing to challenge myself to be brave and confess my struggles more so that God’s light can be shed on them and they lose their power over me.

I often feel very unknown and unseen. I know I am not the only one who feels this way, and yet, it is one of the most isolating feelings. I’m not sure when I began to feel this way. I imagine this insecurity stems from several origins. I grew up very alone without a ton of connection. Some people and friends have actually made me feel unimportant, and I suppose some of this insecurity has been self-imposed.

Whatever the root cause, I want freedom. As much as I want it, God wants it more. He longs for His children to be set free from their sin and struggles so that they can fully engage in intimacy with Him and thrive in every purpose He has set in front of them.

A couple of weeks ago, I was at a Women’s Leadership conference and had a conversation with a dear woman in my life. Her name is Lisa. We hadn’t seen each other in at least a year, but she told me she had been praying for me. I couldn’t believe it. She believed that I was on the verge of something and that God was about to open some things up for me. Needless to say, I received all of the prayer and encouragement. In that moment, I felt so seen and known by her and by the Lord.
