Just Be – Paul Arnold

At the moment I am taking a kind of sabbatical from my ministry following God’s very clear message that I was doing too much. I have stopped to reflect on who I am before God and what shape my ministry should be. Stopping and pausing is difficult for me I like to be busy in a perverse way. I am too often a Martha rather than a Mary.

One Sunday during lockdown I heard a song on Songs of Praise that suddenly struck a chord:

Everything else can wait

I’ve come to seek Your face

So everything else can wait

I’m here for You, I want to

 

Just be, here at Your feet

Just be, here on my knees

Everything else can wait

I’ve come to seek Your face

So everything else can wait

I’m here for You, I want to

 

Just be, here at Your feet

Just be, here on my knees

Here in Your presence, I am complete

Jesus, You’re all that I need

 

So everything else can wait

I’ve come to seek Your face

Everything else can wait

I’m here for You, I want to

 

Just be, here at Your feet

Just be, here on my knees

Here in Your presence, I am complete

Jesus, You’re all that I need

 

The song is called Just Be and is on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wI-ulpVhFAs

Something for us all to ponder and act on this Advent.
