I need to be still.....

Today's sermon ended with a wonderful song.
A song that brought me to my knees. Some of the words were:

I need to be still and let God love me,
I need to be still and let God love me,
When this old world starts to push and shove me
I need to be still and let God love me.

I need to know the name of this song. I want to download it.

I was just saying to a friend earlier this week how I feel so lost sometimes. A few months ago things were bringing me to my knees. When I prayed, when I sung I just felt like dropping to my knees. It hadn't happened in a long time. I was missing it. I was missing the power I felt behind it. The power of God's touch. Then today... That song played and it hit right at my heart and I dropped to my knees. I didn't care who saw or who didn't. God saw.
That was a call for me. That is exactly what I need to do. I need to be still. I need to listen and open my heart to Him. When I start to get pushed around or flustered I need to learn to be still and stop and let Him love me. How many of us forget to do that? Just thinking of the song makes my heart tighten. Makes me long to do that. I need to stop. I need to listen. So hard sometimes.
It's funny how something so simple like a song will stop me to think. God's gentle reminder to me and to all of us.

I know, I just blogged but here I am again. James and Michelle and I were all trying to find the song I mentioned (and James posted). I found it. I also found another song.
It is Called I leave the 99. He leaves the 90 and 9 to find the one. Not sure where it is in the bible, something I need to research but it really makes me proud to be His. He will leave the 99 to find me. He will leave the 99 to find you. Thanks Susan for reminding me in your sermon. God works in wonderful ways.
Wow, today is a day I have been wanting to experience for a while now. God answered. I feel Him so much, and the way I feel is so amazing. I feel so blessed to be His child.

Thank you Lord for the gentle reminders you give. Thank you.

"How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? And if it so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish." Matt. 18:12-14
Yes makes one feel pretty important, huh? Also... I'm grateful to you for sharing your experience with us. I need to hear stuff like that! IT was an awesome service. :)
