“I Just Wanna Be Here With You!”

This morning I was enjoying my usual devotional time that I call  “Coffee with the Lord.”  Part of my Bible reading was Psalm 84, the Psalm where God’s people express the longing of their hearts with these words:

“How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts!  My soul longs, yes faints, for the courts of the Lord!  My heart and flesh sing for joy to the Living God! …

“For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere!  I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness!

“The Lord bestows favor and honor!  No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly!  O Lord of Hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!” (From Psalm 84 ESV)

As I reflected on the longing expressed by the Psalmist, the lyrics of this contemporary worship song came to mind… enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWv6rDamuO4

“Beneath the surface
Of my anxious imagination
Beckons a calmness
That is found in you alone
It washes over every doubt, every imperfection
Jesus your presence is the comfort of my soul

“There’s nowhere I’d rather be
When you’re singing over me
I just wanna be here with you
I’m lost in your mystery
I’m found in your love for me
I just wanna be here with you

“Here in the waiting
I won’t worry about tomorrow
No need to focus
On the things I can’t control
All my attention
On the wonder of this moment
Jesus your presence is the comfort of my soul

“There’s nowhere I’d rather be
When you’re singing over me
I just wanna be here with you
I’m lost in your mystery
I’m found in your love for me
I just wanna be here with you

“So let all that I am
Be consumed with who you are
Oh the glory of your presence
What more could I ask for?

“You’re all I’ve ever needed
You’re everything to me

“There’s nowhere I’d rather be
When you’re singing over me
I just wanna be here with you
I’m lost in your mystery
I’m found in your love for me
I just wanna be here with you

“And I just love your presence
I just really love your presence
What could be better than this moment with you, God?

“I’ve never known a love like you
I’ve never known a peace so real

“Oh, there’s nothing, there’s nothing I want more than you, Jesus
We’re here to meet with you Father
We’re here to give you every part, every part
You deserve it
You deserve it

“So let all that I am
Be consumed with who you are
Oh the glory of your presence
What more could I ask for?

“So let all that I am
Be consumed with who you are
Oh the glory of your presence
What more, oh let’s sing it out

“There’s no one else for me, Lord!”
