Verse of the Day

I Miss My Time with You

Do we ever stop to think about how much God desires for us to spend time with Him each and every day? Do we think about Him sitting next to our favorite spot in the living room just waiting for us to get up in the morning to spend time with Him by reading His word and praying to Him?

There is a verse in Psalm 139:17-18 that says, How precious are your thoughts about me, O God! They are innumerable! I can't even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up in the morning, you are still with me!

I love the end of verse 18: when I wake up in the morning, you are still with me! I envision God watching over us all through the night, keeping us safe and just waiting for morning so that we will converse with Him and read about His faithfulness in His word and spend our time with Him, gaining our strength from Him. So many of us go out to serve Him in our day without ever meeting with Him in our mornings and God is longing to fill us up to give us what we need to go out and serve Him in our days.

For those of you who read our blogs, you know that I am a person who is greatly moved and spoken to through music and this is another song that I heard years ago and it has spoken to me so strongly about how deeply God desires to meet with us every day. I am going to post the lyrics because I want you to read them, but below it is the song. Oh sweet friends, God is waiting for you each morning just longing to see you and spend time with you. Take time this morning to just be with Him!

I MISS MY TIME WITH YOU
by Larnell Harris

There He was just waiting
In our old familiar place
An empty spot beside Him
Where once I used to wait

To be filled with strength and wisdom
For the battle of the day
I would've passed Him by again
But I clearly heard Him say

I miss My time with you
Those moments together
I need to be with you each day
And it hurts me when you say
You're too busy, busy trying to serve Me
But how can you serve Me
When your spirit's empty
There's a longing in My heart
Wanting more than just a part of you
It's true
I miss My time with you

What will I have to offer
How can I truly care
My efforts have no meaning
When your presence isn't there
But You'll provide the power
If I take time to pray
So I'll stay right here beside You
And you'll never have to say

I miss My time with you
Those moments together
I need to be with you each day
And it hurts me when you say
You're too busy, busy trying to serve Me
But how can you serve Me
When your spirit's empty
There's a longing in My heart
Wanting more than just a part of you
It's true
I miss My time with you

"How precious are your thoughts about me, O God! They are innumerable! I can't even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up in the morning, you are still with me!"
