Stop The World

I was listening to Matthew West’s new album “Something to Say” yesterday and a song really touched me deep in my soul. I think it applies directly to the mission of Yosemite Summit.

We are all so very busy everyday and we don’t take time to spend time alone with God. I really love this song. Here are the lyrics:

The TV 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 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
I need to be humble with nothing to prove
I need Your Word to show me the truth
And 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 sign, give me a vision of Heaven
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

Matthew West

That pretty much says it all. Take time for God today!

    That’s good and that is exactly what I’m believing for the “summit” to be. Honestly though, I want that now and every day before the summit. Had a great prayer time this AM and am believing that all of us will, as Toby Mac sings, “catch a fire-let it burn within.” Not only to catch it, but to pass it to the kids we minister to and kids outside the four walls of the church, so they can be a generation that turns the tide in this nation and the world!!!
