Worship Wednesday…Just Want You

 

“Take the lead of every step I make
Even if You tell my feet to wait
‘Cause where You are is where I wanna be
The depth of me is calling for the deep

I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You
No, I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You
Your heart, Your ways
Show me Your face
Your song and Your voice
Break through the noise
I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You
No, I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You, God

Whisper to me secrets of Your heart
‘Cause I want to discover all You are
I’m leaning into Heaven for a glimpse
And I will partner with Your presence here again

I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You
No, I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You
Your heart, Your ways
Show me Your face
Your song and Your voice
Break through the noise
I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You
No, I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You, just want You
Just want You, just want You, God

All that I see, be my everything
All that I dream, lay it at Your feet
All that I am, falling on my knees
I surrender, I surrender
All that I see, be my everything
All that I dream, lay it at Your feet
All that I am, falling on my knees
I surrender, I surrender

I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You
No, I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You

Just want You, just want You
Just want You, just want You
Just want You, just want You”

Growing through Conflict and Misunderstanding

Being misunderstood and judged is one of my worst fears. I pride myself on being forthright and direct in what I do and say, so when someone misunderstands my motives, I am at a loss.

Not too long ago, I had an amazing experience at church — an ordained moment that surprised and encouraged me. It filled me with such life and hope that it felt as though I were on cloud nine. But soon afterwards, someone approached me and questioned my experience. I was taken aback by her words, and I tried to explain myself while holding back tears.

Though her intentions weren’t meant to offend me, her words still hurt, affecting different areas of my life, my thoughts, and my emotions. We prayed together over the situation and over my heart, and I was grateful for those prayers.

When conflict and misunderstandings come my way, I need all the help I can get. Usually when it happens, I tend to over-tell my side of the story so the other person could hopefully know where I’m coming from. And once the shock of being misunderstood wears off, I become angry — angry for having my motives questioned, angry at the whole situation. But that experience and in the days following it, the Holy Spirit reminded me of this truth:

Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;
for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.
James 1:19-20 (ESV)
