In light of recent blogging conversations, I awoke to these words running through my head; "Be near, oh God, be near, oh God"......I love it when the Lord speaks to me in a lyric of a song...particularly one that I'm not that familiar with and usually isn't part of my practice pieces (it is now)....and I know that it is a Word from Him.

Don't you love "church" every day?


be near
by shane barnard

You are all
big and small
beautiful
and wonderful
to trust in grace through faith
but i'm asking to taste...

for dark is light to You
depths are height to You
far is near
but Lord, i need to hear from You

be near, oh God
be near, oh God of us
Your nearness is to us our good
be near, oh God
be near, oh God of us
Your nearness is to us our good, our good

Your fullness is mine
revelation divine
but, oh to taste
to know much more than a page
to feel your embrace....

for dark is light to You
the depths are height to You
far is near, but Lord
I need to hear from You

be near, oh God
be near, oh God of us
Your nearness is to us our good
be near, oh God
be near, oh God of us
Your nearness is to us our good, our good
(psalms 73:28; 139)

Yes, I do like church every day. I like this network of Blogs that grows slowly as we share thoughts. I need to add you to my "Weblog Fellowship" links set.
