This morning I awoke aware of these lyrics echoing over & over again in my spirit & mind.
“All you ever wanted was my affection
All you ever wanted was love from me & just sit here at your feet. “
(Arms wide Open by Misty Edwards)
As the sun rises on this 11/11/11, I sit with the deep longing, the deep realisation of these words. These are the pained words of a lovesick bride who’s heart He has stirred & awakened. Who’s heart He has begun to steal again.
The awakened heart carries an ache, a longing for Jesus. It is filled with a heavy simple love and adoration for Him alone. A building hunger. Sometimes unable to eat nor sleep. Often finding the normal stuff excruciatingly boring. Crying out for His beauty night and day, gloriously heavy in desire for more of Him.
Dripping with Him.
And this is all He ever really wanted…
On this day of worship globally, may He awaken & stir up love… for Him again. For a lovesick bride worships from a whole other place!
As you read these words, may He stir up such a longing & hunger in you again. I bless that in you today.
“For love is as strong as death, jealousy as cruel as the grave. Its flames are flame of fire,
A MOST FIERCE flame.” Song of Songs 8:6
