There’s this one song nearly always in my head. It’s a worship song by Hillsong United called You’ll Come. Today I listened to it on my iPod since it was already playing in my head and I was reminded how the words resonate through my whole being.
“I have decided, I have resolved
To wait upon You Lord
My rock and redeemer, shield and reward,
I wait upon You Lord…
As surely as the sun will rise, You’ll come to us
As certain as the dawn appears
You’ll come and let your glory fall
As you respond to us
Spirit rain, flood into our thirsty hearts again
You’ll come, you’ll come
Chains be broken, lives be healed
Eyes be opened, Christ is revealed“
Basically, my desire is to be with God. Not like in this kind of churchy, self-righteous sense but, like for real. How does that happen? Like in Psalm 27 where it says “One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord”.
Who is this God? He’s not the shaking finger of judgement in the sky, He is the wild and creative and eternal being who made silly things like gooey ducks and crabs. He has a beautiful sense of melancholy- you can tell by the Willow Tree and the Crane. And his sense of adventure and play can be seen all over the Grand Canyon and the Cascade Mountains. All over the world, in every mysterious corner and vast desert, every forest cluster and every joyous water fall.
And I want to know Him. I want to be with Him.
So, Lord, come. Be here with us and give us the grace to Be with You.
