Stay in my love.
Walk with me, beside me.
Don’t rush away into your day.
The distractions come.
Don’t run away, stay.
Sometimes I want to try harder.
Sometimes I let the world crowd in.
I long for comfort- and I deceive myself into believing that anything can feel better than you. It is so silly. And when I take time to think, to really look around and remember- I realize that with you is where I always want to be.
I want to stay. I don’t want to leave. I want you to hold me and tell me everything is going to be ok.
I want to linger and tell you all my secrets. As we walk together, I learn the blessing of staying.
You say-Abide. Remain in me.
Let me hold you with my righteous right hand.
I see you in your Word, I hear you whisper sweet words of truth.
And I want to stay with you- loosen my grip on the world and hold fast to what I know I can depend on.
As I become small- you become great…when I stay.
Stay with me, hold me -teach me and mold me.
When I stay, when I remain- you make me into something beautiful.
And I see the light in others eyes- the hope that you can bring.
Words of truth pour from my lips and my heart leaps- for I see you in me. I know you are here. You are staying- working- lovingly leading me.
Eyes look up at me in trust- and I believe- in who I can be- In You.
When I stay.
