Music Monday

Hey friends, it’s music monday. as you all read below i am in need of refinement. so my goal and desire is to sit and truly be with Him this week. i love this song for so many reasons. it hits me in so many moods. sometimes all i want to say is “stop the world, I want to get out” and yet then i’m reminded that we must stop the world to seek Him not to run…running is way easier in the beginning. so here is to stopping the world and slowing down a life i’m not even sure how to control or if i want to control it

Stop the World by Matthew West

The T.V. is talking
The telephone’s ringing
The lights are all on and the radio’s screaming
A million distractions are stealing my heart from You

I’m tired and empty
This life is relentless
It weakens my knees and it breaks my defenses
It’s wearing me down and I’m desperate to hear from You

Stop the world, I wanna get out
I need an escape away from this crowd
Just to hear You speak to me

I need to be still before I make a move
And I need to be humble with nothing to prove
And I need Your Word to show me the truth
I need time, precious time

Stop the world, I wanna get out
I need an escape away from this crowd
Just to hear You speak to me

Stop the world, I’m ready to listen
Show me a sign, just give me a vision of Heaven
That I can hold on to
Stop the world, I need some time with You

Before I can find my voice
I need to hear Your voice
Above all the senseless noise

Stop the world, I wanna get out
I need an escape away from this crowd
Just to hear You, I need to hear You, Lord

Stop the world, I’m ready to listen
Show me a sign, give me a vision of Heaven
That I can hold on to
Stop the world, I need some time with You
Stop the world, I need some time with You

i am tired. so tired. ultimately i am tired of anything getting a part of me and robbing me of what belongs to Him. i just want to be still. i need an escape and to be held by Him.

[Stop the World!
