NOTHING ELSE will do…

NOTHING ELSE will do…


It is in those sweet moments, when you quiet your heart and shut off all of the worldly noise…and just sit.  Sit at His feet and worship Him…


I never wanna leave…


No agendas. No requests.

I just want You, Jesus.

Nothing else will do…


When His Peace enters and the atmosphere shifts.  When His very PRESENCE surrounds you and enters your heart, spirit and soul. 


PEACE. JOY.


But ‘How do you get there?’ you might ask.  My good friend, Barbara, imagines walking up the staircase that is in her secret place.  And as she walks up, there are baskets on the steps where she shrugs off “the cares of the world” and they fall into these baskets.  By the time she has reached the top landing, she has rid herself of everything that would keep her from from His presence.


In my own experience, I will write those “cares” down in my journal.  Anything that crosses my mind, no matter how mundane or weird, is written down and removed from my mind and then, as I close my journal,  it is as if I have put those thoughts into a file cabinet and closed the drawer.


On occasion, I will play my worshipful playlist as I write and worship. Most of the time, for me, it is completely quiet.


I am ready, LORD.


And then I begin to talk to the Lord.  And with a grateful heart, I thank Abba Father for the many blessings He has poured out over me and JUST FOR ME.


Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things He does for me.  Psalm 103:2 NLT


No agendas. No requests.

 Just Jesus. 

Just Abba Father. 

Just Holy Spirit.


My spirit becomes still.


🎶 I'm caught up in Your presence

I just want to sit here at Your feet

I'm caught up in this holy moment

I never wanna leave


Nothing else, nothing else

Nothing else will do

I just want You…* 🎶


Sometimes, it only takes a few minutes to get to that HOLY MOMENT. 

Sometimes it is instantaneous and no journaling is done at all.

Sometimes it takes longer.

Sometimes I don’t get there at all.  A distraction may come or there’s still too much “noise” going on in my head that I didn’t file away in my journal.


I am in awe of You, LORD.

 I NEVER WANNA LEAVE.


🎶 I’m not here for blessings

Jesus, You don’t owe me anything

More than anything that you can do

I just want YOU* 🎶


THIS SONG YA’LL!  I can’t believe this song has been out for a few years and I am just now “grabbing on to it”.  It ministers to me.  When I listen to it; sing along with it and soak in it, I can sense His presence and His peace envelopes me.  It CATAPULTS me into that HOLY MOMENT.


Honestly, it is  a testimony of God’s perfect timing.  This song came to me when I was having such a difficult time of shutting down the accusing voice of my enemy, satan.  It was during a time when I felt so unworthy of God’s love for me.  Thank You, Abba Father, for Your perfect timing!


🎶 I'm sorry when I've just gone through the motions

I'm sorry when I just sang another song

Take me back to where we started

I open up my heart to You


I'm sorry when I've come with my agenda

I'm sorry when I forgot that You're enough

Take me back to where we started

I open up my heart to You


I'm caught up in Your presence

I just want to sit here at Your feet

I'm caught up in this holy moment

I never wanna leave* 🎶


Yes.  Yes, I am in tears right now.  That the LORD of all creation would draw near to ME.  This ordinary lady who fails Him daily.  ME. He loves ME. He has things He wants to show ME and share with ME.


And YOU too, my friend!


“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” Jeremiah‬ ‭33‬:‭3‬ ‭NIV‬


You are loved!
