My Soul Crying Out...

My soul cries out....
From a dry and dusty land it cries....

I feel like David today.
Crying out with everything in me... toward My Heavenly Father.... for more... for things beyond my comprehension.


I don't have anything eloquent or praise worthy of my own to speak.
But what I have.... I want to give.

Lord.... Father.... God.... Come....
Come Holy Spirit into all that we don't even know that we need yet.
Come and eradicate the dark places and shatter the things that are holding back the things that you are wanting to do in each of your peoples lives.
Shatter our pride.
Shatter our wounds.
Shatter our held back hearts that ache because we have lost our focus of You.
Shatter God.....
And cleanse.
Cleanse us of hearts that are un-pure... daunted... and full of all the things that You don't have for us. And fill us God.
With more.....
With things that we can't even ask for... but all the things that we know that we need.
More of Who You are God.
More of You Holy Spirit.
Let us be bold.... righteous... and unafraid to live lives that are louder than the growls of the enemies around us.
Let us know God that your armies outnumbers all others.
Let us us love more and with the width God that will expand our hearts to be more like yours.
Expand us God.... and help us to see that which can not be seen with our own eyes... but that which is seen through Your eyes oh God.
Show us Father!!
Show us so that we might know that You are mighty! That You are on the move....
And Father... Father.... don't let us miss it.
Don't let us miss it!

I don't want to miss it.

So Lord.... as I sit and move and go about my way of being today....
Father I am calling out to You.... from my small spot on this earth....
And I am crying out for more.
You see us God. Whether we acknowledge you or not.
You see us.
See us God.
We want to see you Father.
Bring more God.
I don't want to settle anymore.
We can't settle anymore.
Not life as usual.
Shake us up Lord.

Shakina glory.

Come Lord.

We need You.

More than we have ever needed you before.

Father God Come!!
In Jesus name!

A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah...

 1 "O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly;
My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You,
In a dry and weary land where there is no water.
2 Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary,
To see Your power and Your glory.
3 Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips will praise You.
4 So I will bless You as long as I live;
I will lift up my hands in Your name.
5 My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips." Psalm 63:1-5
