Mellifluous – Speak!

Posted: September 27, 2010 in Mellifluous

Okay God you’ve got my attention. i am sure that i must have known this at some time or the other, but it must have escaped me. Circumstances, situations, nor “stuff” are what cause me to lose my peace. i can’t really blame it on people, although i try often. Here’s what i mean. i lose my job and i am upset. The job did not fire me, it was a person. The boss or his boss or the board of directors. For whatever reason a person fired me. my “stuff” can’t do anything.

Now… people on the other hand…. well, they can do a lot of things. But this is what i was tested… no, reawakened to last week. People can’t make me loose my peace.  They can do a lot of things to me or against me but they can not take away my peace. my peace is just that! It’s mine. And it does not come from circumstances, situations, or “stuff” working out as i think it should. mt peace is a result of relationship with God. The amount of peace that i have and walk in is in direct proportion to the amount of trust and relationship i have with Him. If the lyrics to this song were absolutely true in my life i wonder…? There are days when God has my attention and then others when everything but God has my attention. No wonder ” i almost let go” and have to go on a search to “find my peace.”

Today’s song is delivered by the ministry of Audio Adrenaline. The lyrics are a somber thought of how we often focus our attention on so many other things instead of the voice of God. The word i got while praying for today’s person and their song is at the bottom of the post.

01 – Attention

You call me here from all the things I’m chasing
You bring me to this place to lie down
You pull me from the wars I’ve been waging
And remind me there’s a table set for us

Exhale, shut my eyes and make me slow down and be still

Speak, You have my attention
You have my attention
You have my attention Lord

You called us here so we could find our purpose
You bring us here one body to find rest
You pull us close to You, close together
So close we hear Your whisper, feel Your breath

Exhale, shut our eyes and make us slow down and be still

Speak, You have our attention
You have our attention
You have our attention Lord

Oh, More than I need
More than enough
Are Your words, Oh God

All that I am
All that I have
Are Your words, oh God

Speak, You have my attention
You have my attention
You have my attention Lord

Abruptly Jesus broke into prayer: “Thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth. You’ve concealed your ways from sophisticates and know-it-alls, but spelled them out clearly to ordinary people. Yes, Father, that’s the way you like to work.”

Jesus resumed talking to you, but now tenderly. “The Father has given me all these things to do and say. This is a unique Father-Son operation, coming out of Father and Son intimacies and knowledge. No one knows the Son the way the Father does, nor the Father the way the Son does. But I’m not keeping it to myself; I’m ready to go over it line by line with anyone willing to listen.

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with mewatch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
