thank you for your Spirit
that infuses me with revelation of who you are,
an awareness of your presence,
how real you are.
I am but dust without you,
dry, weary, devoid of life,
and I praise you for saving me to life,
life abundant, eternal in you.
Help me Lord.
Topple the idols in my heart,
sear away the distractions, busyness,
all of my excuses for sin
that all lead to death.
Restore my heart to first love,
that when you come again soon,
I’ll be watching, waiting, looking for you
with clear eyes and spirit, a pure heart,
and my cup will overflow,
my gladness and joy fulfilled
to see you face to face,
taken up in the clouds,
in a blink of an eye,
in the midst of all rejoicing lovers
surrounding the King of kings.
Have your way in me,
enable me by your Spirit and grace
to work out my faith with fear and trembling,
let your perfect love cast out all fear,
loving you in heart and obedience,
going boldly where you lead and call,
standing firm in faith,
faithful to the end
and shining your light.
Make it so Lord,
I bless you.
