Sweet Intimacy

Lord,

thank you for drawing up the emptiness,

exposing the loneliness,

showing me the depths of my heart

that only you are meant to fill.

I praise you that you’d draw me close,

close as a friend,

away into your chambers,

intimate as a bridegroom,

and I receive you Lord

inviting your presence,

fill me with your Spirit,

dwell within me.

Draw me close,

hold me near,

help me to follow where you call.

Let me not resist,

hold back, hesitate,

but grab hold of your hand,

and be with you,

as close as you would let me be.

I love you Lord.

Amen.

Draw Me Away

Lord,

Draw me away to rest in you,

kiss me with your Word,

revive me with your Spirit,

remind me again that your love is better than wine,

than anything this world has to offer…

for only you can satisfy.

Hide me under your wings,

for your nearness delights and comforts,

your presence is a fragrance

that soothes, restores, and calms.

Still my soul against your heartbeat,

your rhythm of love and melody of grace.

Let me rejoice and be glad in you,

remembering and praising your sweet love,

enjoying you, resting assured

that this is right where I belong.

I love you and bless you Lord.

Amen.
