More than authenticity, I ask for a yielded heart
More than anointing, I long to see you rightly
More than talent, I ask that you posses my heart with more of you
More than singing well-thought-out lyrics,
Or running on the hamster wheel of performance,
More than the tickling of ears,
Greater than hype or emotion,
More than gifting, acknowledgement, or the climax of a song-
My hearts greatest desire is you.
I shift my gaze to your precious, holy presence.
I submit my personality & choose to consume of you
I surrender my casualty in exchange for great hunger
I lay down all of my observations & judgements at your feet and choose to participate in extravagance
I refuse to approach you pretending that I do not know your nature
My eyes have seen and my lips have tasted
For I have learned that you have not set yourself on reserve for eternity
My passionate heart overflows in gratitude & praise-
for I have footsteps full of history
incomprehensible love is this?
Jesus, it’s you.
