In the stillness of the night, the sanctuary beckons to me.
I can hear the voice of my Father calling my name.
I can feel His Spirit drawing me to a place of quiet communion.
God's House is my refuge. My peace. My joy.
As I walk through the doors, I am enveloped in His Spirit.
Strong. Fragrant. Heavy.
As I approach the altar my heart beats faster as I am filled with:
Anticipation. Relief. Hunger.
As I fall flat on my face before Him, I am:
Crying out. Pressing in. Seeking deep.
In the intimate confines of my heart, I am:
Pursuing knowledge. Embracing surrender. Experiencing His Wonder.
I soak in.
I am filled.
As I prostrate myself before Him, I give Him my all. My heart lies open before Him. The tears fill my eyes and flow freely as I am overcome with love for Him. His mercy overwhelms me and I am in awe of His grace.
My prayers become utterances as I let the Spirit have freedom. My barren souls thirsts and hungers.
I seek nourishment from His Word.
I feel Him exhaling His Spirit to cover me.
His presence abounds and I can't move.
As He manifests Himself in the depths of my being, I don't want to leave His presence. I desire to stay right where I am. On my face at His Feet.
My soul worships and He refreshes me like a spring rain. He saturates me with the fullness of Him.
I arise with new awareness of my Jesus. Delivered. Free. I surely received a glimpse of His splendor.
As I leave the sanctuary I take His presence with me. I am surrounded in His glory. I am astounded by His love. I am in relentless pursuit of a deeper knowledge of my Christ. My King. My Redeemer.
His Spirit will draw.
His voice will call.
His Sanctuary will beckon.
Praise you Lord for your amazing grace. Praise you for the wonder of who you are. You complete me. You are my God and my King.
"Your way, O God, is in the sanctuary;
Who is so great a God as our God?
You are the God who does wonders;
You have declared Your strength
among the peoples"
