such richness

I have come to this place in my life
I’m full but I’ve not satisfied
This longing to have more of You
I can feel it my heart is convinced
I’m thirsty my soul can’t be quenched
You already know this but still
Come and do whatever You want to

I’m standing knee deep but I’m out where never been
I feel You coming and I hear Your voice on the wind

Would you come and tear down the boxes that I have tried to put You in
Let love come teach me who You are again
Take me back to the place where my heart was only about You
And all I wanted was just to be with You
Come and do whatever You want to

Further and further my heart moves away from the shore
Whatever it looks like, whatever may come I am Yours
Further and further my heart moves away from the shore
Whatever it looks like, whatever may come I am Yours …”

And this idea that when I lose myself in God in daily life. when I make the choice right now to focus my thoughts on whatever is true, honorable, just … {phil 4:8}. when I choose to seek even though I’ll never fully comprehend – to be ok with being “in over my head.” when in my longing to know and worship God more fully I let go of my pride and ego and worry so that I can raise my hands in worship. raise them in worship of this God Who pursues me because He loves me unexplainably. and He wants me to be vulnerable and real and to keep nothing hidden from Him. because there is no fear in love {1 john 4:18}.

And, God, wrap my heart in Your loving, strong arms. protect it from what would hinder my vulnerability, my relationship, with You. and let me be willing to give up the things that are between us. because what else have I got that compares with You {phil. 3:8}? and what else could I need that You don’t provide {matt. 6:31-33}? and Who else could guide me to do relationships and life with such richness {2 pet. 1:3; 1 john 3:16}?

and, God, may this not only be putting You first in my life, but embracing You as my very life …

“Then You crash over me and I’ve lost control but I’m free”
