Come Away With Me

I’ve written about this a little before, but there are times when I hear a song on the radio, and even though it’s totally not about God, I can’t help but put a faithful spin to it.

So yesterday, after posting Matthew 11 where Jesus says, “Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest,” when I heard Norah Jones’ Come Away With Me, I couldn’t help but think about our precious God and how He sweetly calls to us, “Come.”  

In the midst our craziness and stress, Come

When we’re so tired we can’t feel like we can even move, Come.

In spite of our failings, sin, and shortcomings, Come

So in love with us is our faithful God, that He beckons over and over again, Come

If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.
John 7:37  
“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters…Give ear and come to me; hear me, that your soul may live.”
Isaiah 55:1,3
