Five-minute Friday: Here


A song immediately comes to mind. Ava Sophie starts singing:

Here I am to worship,

here I am to bow down,

here I am to say that you’re my God’

It’s something about those lyrics.

Here I am.

Here I am to(….)

She’ s thinking about how dependent she is on remembering to tell God:

‘Here I am. I stand silent before you, just as I am, only with one need: your presence.’

She’s thinking about all the times she feels lost. The times when she wonders why God is so far away, and no matter what she does He won’t answer. And then when she remembers to come into the presence of God and just say: Here I am. All yours’, she understands that: ‘Aha! I forgot this part. I forgot that I am the one who makes me feel so lost! I am the one who cut myself off, so I can’t feel God’s presence! No wonder I’ve been struggling’. And in the moment she says ‘here I am’, she can feel the presence. She can let down her shoulders, accept and feel the peace she’s offered, just BE.

Ava Sophie sends up a prayer:

‘Thank you, Lord!

thank you for moving into my neighborhood.

Thank you for giving me everything I need and more!

Thank you for being there for me, ALWAYS, no matter what!

Thank you for loving me just the way I am.

Thank you for liking me, even with all my flaws.

Thank you for being the air I breathe!’

STOP(20 minutes, getting better at this;) )
