Matters of the heart

You weigh hearts

Should You weigh mine

May it weigh more than vapor

I pray that in my heart a seed you will sow

As seasons change and You pass by  looking expectantly

May the seed have begun to sprout

When You come looking for fruit

May you find some in me, not as the fig tree that looked promising on the outside

But had nothing to offer on the inside

 

In the deep

Where You call out

From the place of many waters enough to refresh, restore and satisfy our souls

Your heart calling out to mine

Deep calling upon deep

Come let us sit together

Let us eat together

Let us get to know each other

Let us reason together

Know Me my child, as I know you

 

The treasure in the deep

You come into my house- my life

You give me a clean heart

You pour Your very life in me

Your very presence poured out in a mortal being

As was with the with Ark of the Covenant

My body but a tent

Yet I carry a treasure

The presence of the Almighty God

the greatest treasure, for which my Jesus paid

A price so high, His body torn just as the curtains in the temple

So that my heart may be forever joined with Yours

“How beautiful are your tents, Jacob, your dwelling places, Israel!” Numbers 24:5

Oh that this I may grasp, and give You honor

The impossible made possible

By a God so great and precious

Whose love overrides time and space

That He would want to dwell in me

His love overriding time and space

Selah

Psalm 42:7 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

  Deep calls to deep at the sound of Your waterfalls;
All Your breakers and Your waves have rolled over me.

 

 Psalm 51:6 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

  Behold, You desire truth in the innermost being,
And in the hidden part You will make me know wisdom.
