Pause In My Presence

Pause In My Presence

Take a deep breath in and out.


Pause in my presence for a moment. Breathe, pause, rest. When you do move forward again, simply move one step at a time. As for right now, I want intimacy with you in this time of rest.

I’m asking that you would drop the to-do list and sit with me, just as Mary sat at my feet. Do not be distracted by all the ‘good things’ you could be doing; choose to be with me instead. This time is a privilege, a rare moment to drop all the distractions that normally interrupt us.

Recall, for a moment, what it was like to be in school. Did you ever prepare well ahead for an exam? Did you feel at ease the night before the test, knowing that you had done all you could do to prepare already? That is this season for us! You have been well prepared to meet with me; all I desire is that you would enter into that place of rest. There is nothing left to study, and nothing that needs your attention more than my presence.

Be a kid again with me; rest and wait, and you will step into the fullness of my Love.
