“I hope to see you on my journey, and to be helped on my way there by you, if first I may enjoy your company for a while,” (Rom. 15:24b NKJV)
Enjoy your company for a while
Lord, I know you accompany me in all my ups and downs of this earthly journey.
Lord I know you help me on my way and never leave my side.
But today, Lord I just want to enjoy Your company.
I want to sit with You.
I want to rest in Your arms.
I want to know You better.
I want to be with You.
Probably no words. No deep theological insights. No life-changing, top of the mountain call to service.
Just being with You.

Thanks for all the comments. so many of us are thirsting to be closer to God. good to know I have many traveling the same road with me. Too often I get so caught up with the doing and striving and the trying and forgot just to be, to rest with our Savior.

Jean – I am pretty new to lectio divina, but I love the ways I get to know God by being present to his word. Your message here captures that so well.
Thanks for dropping by my place yesterday. I love being part of Michelle’s Monday community.
Sounds as if there’s no better place to be…
Sigh. It is so nice to just “be” with the Lord. Beautiful reflection and the picture was perfect. Thanks and God bless!
Phather Phil Malmstrom says
Amen Jean. I think I could use some of that time with Him as well today…
Thank you for the reminder!
Have a Blessed Day!
You know what, Jean? This really resonates with me, especially after what I wrote about today, in feeling the need to draw closer to God in a more heartfelt and comfortable way. I really like the way you put this — it gives me hope that this kind of comfortable relationship is indeed possible with God. Thank you for that….and for being such a loyal Hear It, Use It participant — I always love to see you there and read how God is speaking to you.
I’m so ready to be here — between this post and Michelle’s, I really feel that God is leading me to a new place in my relationship with Him.

This helps to remind me it is about HIm, not me. Thanks for your comments
A lovely day…I hope to have one!
Jeanie, that gave me such a peace and calmness just reading it. Thank you.
“Amen”! There is nothing like being in his presence just because of who he is.
Love ya 🙂
