More

We all need more of Him. More of His presence. More of His peace. More of His love. We have it all at our fingertips, it’s a matter of us reaching out and receiving it. Life gets busy, schedules fill up, kids need to be fed (3+ times a day, seriously what is the deal with that?), and we tend to lose sight of the most important aspect of our lives; the connection with our Lord Jesus Christ.

I don’t know about you, but when life becomes overwhelming, my first reaction isn’t always to run to Jesus. I tend to act in my flesh and retreat to my phone, social media, shopping, any excuse escaping the overwhelming and every day mundane moments of life. I tend to push away the still small voice calling me to His presence.

This song is one I love to listen to when I’m in a time of needing Him more. Through the simple lyrics it repeats the same truth, throughout: “I just want more, I just want more, more of you God, more of you.” His goodness is something I can’t get enough of. When I surrender my to do list, my everyday frustrations, my hopes, dreams, and desires at His feet, I can’t help but want more.

The verse in this song speaks of a surrender I want to have not only in my worship moments with the Lord, but in every moment of every day. It says: “I pour out all I have, and lay down all I am. I'm making room for You Lord, I'm ready to open up my heart, to receive not in part, but the fullness of who You are Lord, I'm ready.”

I encourage you, no matter how busy you are, how full your life is, take the time to get away and be alone with the Lord, even if it’s only for the length of this song. Lay down the busyness, the stress, the frustrations at His feet and He will give you peace. He wants to connect with you, speak to you, love on you. Just take the first step, reach out, and receive His love.

Lyrics:

I just want more, I just want more

More of You God, more of You God

I just want more, I just want more

More of You God, more of You

[Verse]

I pour out all I have, and lay down all I am

I'm making room for You

Lord, I'm ready

To open up my heart, to receive not in part

But the fullness of who You are

Lord, I'm ready

[Chorus]

I just want more, I just want more

More of You God, more of You God

I just want more, I just want more

More of You God, more of You

[Verse]

I pour out all I have, and lay down all I am

I'm making room for You

Lord, I'm ready    

He wants to connect with you, speak to you, love on you.
