Shaking the Tears

Worship. It happened this morning. I must confess my personal worship time has been growing small. I have been on the edge of tears about everything. I teared up at the mother/daughter banquet last week because after seating everyone I couldn't find a place for the girl and me. In the slightest shake the tears flow.

This morning as I met my living room floor I surrendered. Once again. It is something constant in my life. I realized that I had felt so guilty about having these emotions that I have not been bringing them to him. I just love his patience. I dropped it all. I left my hurt and my attitude. There was a song playing on the radio that was saying Sing with me, dance with me, cry with me....It is alright to cry and have emotion...Just do it with me. How I was trying to hide.

Then another song came on and I jumped up in order to worship him with my whole self. With tears streaming down my face his words fell...It's been a while...I missed you.

I missed him too.

Here is the song that made me stand to my feet. It was played for me. At this moment in life it speaks volumes.

When I see you I have strength to face this day. In your presence all my fears are washed away.

If you have a few minutes watch this and listen to the words.

i went to the passion conference in atlanta this past january, and i heard that song for the first time. those words struck me -"in your presence, all our fears are washed away." and i haven't heard that song since... until i saw this post. (perfect timing, Lord!)

i know what you mean... realizing how much you've missed him. hoping you have SWEET time with Jesus today.

Ohhh! I just got a hold of this song off of Travis Cottrell's blog (him mentioning it was one of his favorites right now - so I had to go check it out). Whew! Amen sister...glad He draws us to Himself with new mercies.

Oh...sorry - I hopped over here off of the LPM blog (I think!) :)

I appreciate this post. As I am dying to just break down and cry with Him. I struggle with feeling pent up and not being able to get it out.
