Take time to behold Him

Take time to behold Him,
  Speak oft with Thy Lord,
Abide in Him always,
  And feed on His Word.
Wait thou in His presence,
  Submissive and meek,
Forgetting in nothing
  His blessing to seek.
Take time to behold Him,
  The world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret
  With Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus
  Like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends, in thy conduct,
  His likeness shall see.
Take time to behold Him,
  Let Him be thy guide;
And run not before Him
  Whatever betide;
In joy or in sorrow
  Still follow thy Lord,
And, looking to Jesus,
  Still trust in His Word.
Take time to behold Him,
  Be calm in thy soul,
Each thought and each temper
  Beneath His control.
Thus led by His Spirit
  To fountains of love,
Thou then shalt be fitted
  His mercy to prove.

To absorb God takes time. May we not be rushed in our time with Him!

Lord, no matter what, we would just follow You and trust in Your Word. Everyday, all we would do is give Your our time to experience and enjoy all that You are. Amen<3

In joy or in sorrow

Still follow thy Lord,

And, looking to Jesus,

Still trust in His Word.

Oh! , dear brothers and sisters, if we just realize that on our everyday THIS WORLD RUSHES ON to take us away from spending adequate time with our precious dear Lord Jesus. The key of been a living member of the Body of Christ is just absorbed and been absorbed by our dear Lord Jesus Christ; by Taking time to behold Him

speak oft with thy Lord.

"Take time behold Him, the world rushes on; spend much time in secret with Jesus alone. By looking to Jesus, like Him thou shalt be; your friends, in your conduct, His likeness shall see."

Recently I've really been touched by the matter of spending time with the Lord. From our local winter retreat, I saw that I must redeem the time, and to redeem my time is to spend time loving Him. Nothing else compares to Him - there is no one else like our dear Lord Jesus. So shouldn't I be spending the most time loving Him, enjoying and conversing with the Lord? I love Him, I've consecrated my college life to Him, so why aren't I giving Him my full attention, my all? It is because I fail, constantly. And often times after I rebelled, I felt so unworthy and disheartened that I run away from Him. But Hallelujah, we can turn back to Him by choosing our spirit at ANY time! Whenever we fail, it's just another opportunity for me to turn back to Him. We need to PAY THE PRICE to take a stand to our soul life, but in the whole New testament we are never told to REPAY anything. The Lord just wants me to love Him, that I'd willingly pay the price to give my time and life to Him. I love You Lord!
