SILENCE

Silence beckons me ….

Silence beckons me and I sit before her and I am still

Waiting

Waiting for a word, a touch, a direction in which I am to go …. 
 

Longing ….

LONGING engulfs me

Wraps me like a blanket pulled tightly around me
 

MUFFLED

MUFFLED are my cries as I hear you speak … and
 

I FIGHT

FIGHT to give up my fleshly desires, wants and needs and ask YOU

 

YOU to replace them with YOURS …
 

Quiet

Quiet falls over my soul as the battle ends and I give all of me to all of YOU …
 

Three in ONE a trinity a cord that binds and holds me together …. 
 

Wanting

Wanting nothing more than all of YOU

 

Lead me

As the Dawn Breaks

As the Dawn Breaks

As the dawn breaks, I think of you

 As the darkness gives way to the rising sun, I think of you

As the birds raise their voices in praise to you, I think of you

As the dew refreshes the earth, I think of you

As the mist of night lifts and a new day is birthed... I think of you

OH GRACE, your wonderful GRACE ...... A NEW DAY is dawning with the promise of more of you

You, withhold nothing from those that seek you

A NEW DAY is dawning

You wait so patiently for me to rise from my slumber to meet you there in our secret place

You wait with anticipation as the sweetest of lovers ... the LOVER of my soul

As the Dawn Breaks, you greet me there

Fourth Watch

In the early morning hours

I hear you beckon me

 

Awake, arise my love!

 

In the early morning hours

I hear you beckon me

 

Come

 

In the early morning hours

I hear you beckon me

 

with the names of your children

 

In the early morning hours

I hear you whisper their names

their needs

 

 

You Press

upon

my heart

Pray

 

 

(selah)

 

 

In the early morning hours

You set 
a watchman
upon the wall

 

(selah)

 

I stand upon the wall

feeling

small

 

I stand upon the wall asking

why me?

 

I stand upon the wall

and I listen

 

I hear the enemy say

Your broken and flawed

- you -
sinner that faulters

stumble

stumble

stumble

from the wall

 

I SAY

YES, I am broken and flawed and I stumble often

BUT it is by

GRACE

 

That HE

That HE

That HE has chosen me
 to
STAND 
UPON the WALL

 

 

I am HIS

WATCHMEN UPON THE WALL



I harken unto
HIS CALL


I 
pray

 


"But in the fourth watch of the night, Yeshua came unto them while he was walking on the water." Matthew 14:25    (this is about 3:00am)
“I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower and will watch to see what He will say unto me and what I shall answer when I am reproved.” Habakkuk 2:1

" I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night.
You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest,  and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth." Isaiah 62:6

YOU

YOU

 

You asked for me

AWARE - of who I am and who I was

And yet YOU asked for me

You waited for a yes

"YES LORD JESUS" is my reply

But "why?"

Why did you ask for ME?

I’ve lived a life that’s messy, full of stories and mishaps, bad choices, broken hearts and tattered dreams

"Why?"

"Why did you ask for ME?"

“I’ve asked for you because you would say YES!  Yes, to share your mess and your life, to be transparent and full of grace and mercy to my children”  I’ve asked for you because you do not know all the answers or do all the right things but you say YES to me”

“YOU say YES to me, you want to be MY hands and feet… you share my loving kindness”  .........“you say YES to ME. “   

“You see these places that are broken and hurt?  These are the places I fill with my grace and glory.  Those places create in you a tenderness and a readiness to reach out and touch my children……………. Not with words of condemnation or reprimand but with your YES TO ME, your YES to my loving kindness running over from you ……………………………………          to those seeking ME.

"I chose you....

For your YES to ME "
