My face lifted toward Him

I sink to my knees. I fall on my face.

Searching,
Yearning,
Seeking.

Looking for answers. Looking for revelation.

Praying,
Listening,
Praising.

Enlightened, delighted and realizing;

He hears my cry. He cares about me. He speaks to my heart.

He is Creator, Savior, Redeemer, Sustainer.

He is my Comforter, my Strength, my Breath, my Life.

He delivers,
He fills,
He satisfies,
He completes.

He astounds,
He surrounds,
He amazes,
He perfects.

He's present and past. He is light. He is all.

He is brokenness, Holiness, Righteousness, Mercy, Truth.

He is worthiness, faithfulness, forgiveness, grace.

My face turns toward heaven and my hands reach up, thirsting..

Fill me up to overflowing.
Refresh my Spirit.
Restore me.
Equip me.

Satisfy my thirsty soul with a splash of your glorious Splendor.

You are King.
You are Lord.
You are God.

I will worship You and praise You forever.

"Rain down you heavens from above,
And let the skies pour down righteousness;
Let the earth open, let them bring
forth salvation.
And let righteousness spring up together.
I, the Lord, have created it"

(Isaiah 45:8)
