I want to be where You are…..

This has been the cry of my heart as long as I can remember. There’s nothing I want more than to be in God’s Presence, where all things that surround become mere shadows in His Light. In God’s Presence, there’s healing, there’s peace and there’s wholeness. There’s forgiveness, mercy and compassion. There’s love and acceptance like you never dreamed possible, no matter how bad you might feel about yourself. And the most important thing is that God is there, and He’s wanting to spend time with you!

Here’s a lovely song, written and performed nice and simply by Don Moen, which you can use as a prayer song. Listen to it, join in where you can, but own the lyrics. Make it your own song; make it your prayer. Desire to be in His Presence.

You see, God promises to draw close to all those who seek Him. Feel His presence right there with you. Everyone feels that presence slightly differently to others – some might feel a burning in their chest, some might feel a lightness of spirit, some might feel what seems like a cloak around their shoulders, some feel an overwhelming sense of love and acceptance, some see the air sparkling, some hear heavenly music – however you feel Him there, let Him draw close. He won’t scare you or do anything uninvited; He’s the perfect gentleman.

So, make this song your prayer, and then follow on into the next song, Here we are in Your Presence. Believe that He’s there in His life-changing power. Worship Him for His greatness and His love for you, for you personally. This is real; this is where it all happens!

I just want to be where You are,
dwelling daily in Your presence
I don’t want to worship from afar,
draw me near to where You are

I just want to be where You are,
in Your dwelling place forever
Take me to the place where You are,
I just want to be with You

I want to be where You are,
dwelling in Your presence
Feasting at Your table,
surrounded by Your glory
In Your presence,
that’s where I always want to be
I just want to be,
I just want to be with You

I just want to be where You are,
dwelling daily in Your presence
I don’t want to worship from afar,
draw me near to where You are

Oh, my God,
You are my strength and my song
And when I’m in Your presence
Though I’m weak You’re always strong

I just want to be where You are,
in Your dwelling place forever
Take me to the place where You are,
I just want to be, I just want to be with You

I just want to be, I just want to be with You

We want to be where You are,
dwelling in Your presence
Feasting at Your table,
surrounded by Your glory
In Your presence,
that’s where we always want to be
I just want to be, I just want to be with You

I just want to be, I just want to be with You

I just want to be with You

Here we are, in Your Presence
Lifting holy hands to You
Here we are, praising Jesus
For the things He’s brought us through

Here we are, in Your Presence
Lifting holy hands to You
Here we are, praising Jesus
For the things He’s brought us through
