Come Away With ME, MY Love


(Song of Songs 2:10 NIV- My Beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, My darling, My beautiful one, come with Me.)

My one word to focus on for this year is “be”. As I was spending the last few hours of 2015 entering into 2016 praying and just soaking in The Presence of God, He whispered to my heart, “Just simply be with Me.”. And so, my only focus this year is to just continually and intimately “be” with Him— reveling in His Presence and getting to know more of His heart every single day.

I’ve been meditating on the entire Song of Songs for the last couple weeks and if you’re a regular here at “AS-KS”, you know that my heart delights in intimacy with The Lord. But the reason today’s focal verse truly echoed within my spirit is because a few months ago, The Lord said to me, “I’m taking you higher in Me.” and so as soon as I read— My Beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, My darling, My beautiful one, come with Me”, those words came alive to me because the deeper The Lord allows me to experience Him and to know His heart— He’s still always in the midst sweetly and gently whispering to my soul, “And yet, there is deeper still. Come away with Me, my Love.” .

There have been days when I’m cooking or just doing simple chores and He’ll say, “Come be with Me.”. You would think that if The Lord calls you to the secret place it’s because there’s something urgent on His heart that He’s longing to share with you. Well, in my experience, sometimes that’s true and I love those moments, but sometimes it’s not and I love those moments even more because sometimes He just simply wants to be with me and know that I’ll be obedient when He calls.

I’m sharing this with you guys because I want you to know that mere words cannot express how deep The Lord’s love is for you. You are His most treasured. His heart desires and delights in simply being with you. (Song of Songs 7:10 NIV- I belong to my Beloved, and His desire is for me.)

And as His beloved, He lovingly calling out to you, “Smile, My beautiful one. Come away with Me, My Love.”.

Abba, today and everyday forth, our hearts will fearlessly and faithfully respond to the deep in You whispering to the deep within us to come closer. I ask that as You continually draw us near to Your heartbeat that You would give us a divine understanding of Who You are as The Lover of our souls and what it truly means to be Your beautiful ones. We are endlessly grateful for Your perfect, unconditional love for us. Lord, we love You, we exalt You, and we are lovers of Your Holy Presence.  In the name of Jesus Christ, Your precious Son, and our Lord and Savior— I pray, Amen and so be it.

The song below is my go-to song to sing to The Lord when I just want Him to know that I love Him and He’s on my heart. I encourage you to listen first and then sing along as token of affection from your heart to His.

  1. This is so beautiful! I love that your word for 2016 is “be”. I’ve felt a call from the Lord in the past several months to learn to BE instead of DO. I tend to find my worth in doing – obeying, serving, perfectionism, etc. But God has grabbed my heart and said, “Hey, just BE. I don’t require you to DO.” So, I’m in it with you! 🙂

    • Alison, trust me, I understand because I am naturally wired to be a doer. But it has been a beautiful change of pace in my life and in my relation with GOD to not do and simply “be”. And in me being obedient to that HE has just been overwhelming me with HIS PRESENCE. HE’S such a good, good FATHER. Thank you so much for visiting with me today, Love! GOD bless you, beautiful friend! 🙂

  2. I love your word for 2016 Tai. It speaks of my desire this year to respond to God’s call by making out time to intentionally be with Him. I had to come up with a ‘Be-list’ everyday rather than a ‘to-do list’.
    You always inspire me to go deeper with God. Thanks for being such a sweet friend.
    Have a great week.

    • Grace, you are most welcome and my heart truly delights in knowing that you’ve been blessed here, Love. That means so much. I love the idea of your be-list and I can only imagine how THE LORD is going to beautifully reveal HIMSELF to you during your time with HIM. Thank you so much for visiting with me! GOD bless you, beautiful friend! 🙂

  3. What a great word, Tai.
    To “be” in His presence. I can think of nothing better or more powerful that we can do!
