We've sung a song recently in church (these FMF's always make me think of songs) by Matt Redman "Here for You."
It talks about welcoming God into our presence with praise and the fact that the reason that we are here is for Him. The part that sticks out to me every time is:
To You our hearts are openGod is my ultimate guest but too often when I come into His presence I am thinking about me too. Just like with house guests distractions abound: my to-do list, my wants, so many other things when I should be focusing on my Guest. I can't close the cupboard doors to hide the mess with Him. He knows it all and He wants to be with me in spite of it. How grateful I am.
Nothing here is hidden
You are our one desire
You alone are holy
Only You are worthy
God, let Your fire fall down
Oh Lord, please help me to open both the door to my heart and the door to my home. I've neglected that word lately... so here it is. I welcome You to open me.
