Heart to Heart
January 29, 2020

Whenever I read the Word of God, the Holy Spirit speaks to my heart. Then, I pour my heart back out to the Lord through my worship, prayer, and adoration of Him. This intimate dialogue between the Lord’s heart and my own occurs because the Word of God is living and powerful discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).  Also, Jesus – who is the Word made flesh (John 1:14)  – desires for us to draw near to him. In return, He promises to draw near to us (James 4:8).  During one of these “heart to heart” moments with the Lord, I began to meditate on the goodness of God.  As I meditated, I was prompted to turn one of my favorite scripture passages, Psalm 63:1-8 into a heartfelt poem.


A Poem of Psalm 63

O Lord, you are mine.
You are merciful, loving and kind.

I get up early to seek your face,
To fellowship with you, to get a taste.

Of your goodness, my soul hungers and thirst.
You are my God. You are first.

My spirit yearns to be with Thee.
Nothing else satisfies. I need you to be with me.

I long to see your presence like in the temple,
Glorious, Amazing, Holy, and Gentle

Because your favor is more valuable than anything,
Praises from my mouth will continue to ring.

I will magnify you in this earth.
I will lift up my hand showing your worth.

When I ponder about you at night,
Praise will come forth with all my might.

You have been my refuge, help and strong tower.
I rejoice about your wondrous acts and power.

I will cling and I will chase hard after you,
As long as I live, that’s what I will do.


I encourage you today to begin this year putting God first in every area of your life, and to open your heart to receive from his! Through these heart to heart moments, your relationship with Him will grow and deepen in ways you never could have imagined!
