Just Sit


Picture this~

An empty room

Totally white

with only

2 chairs~

One for you

&

One for

JESUS.

What thoughts are running through your head?

Tears fill my eyes

just thinking about it

& right now I don't know why.

Could it be that

I have complicated my relationship with JESUS?

Have I made it about wanting blessings from HIM,

instead of just desiring HIM?

Have I become so distracted that I have filled the room

with so many other things,

that I can't even see HIM?

Just you

&

JESUS,

sitting in an empty room

What would you say? How would you feel?

I would say that

I am sorry

because I haven't always

put HIM first.

And then I can picture

JESUS

looking into my eyes with

such

Compassion

Gentleness

Sweetness

Without Condemnation,

even though I would want to hide my head in shame,

as these words would be swirling in my head~

"I am not good enough to be sitting here, just YOU & I."

"Why would you even want to spend time with just ME?"

And

JESUS

would still be looking

into my eyes & into your eyes with such

Compassion

Gentleness

Sweetness

Without Condemnation

because that is

Who

JESUS IS

&

nothing

that you or I feel

or

have done or not done

can ever change that

because

it has always been about

You & I

because

JESUS

made everything

about US

the moment

"HE made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant,

being made in human likeness.

And being found in appearance as a man,

HE humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—

even death on a cross!" (Philippians 2:8)

Just so

HE

could sit with

each one of us~

ONE on one~

every second of every day,

so that

we can be filled with

HIS Compassion

HIS Gentleness

HIS Sweetness

HIS Acceptance~

making every moment

the best moment

if only

we always picture ourselves

alone

in

An empty room

Totally white

with only

2 chairs~

One for you

&

One for

JESUS~

"Find me here at YOUR feet again" ("Touch The Sky", listen below)
