Search Me

Search Me

search me
try me, Oh God
and see if there’s anything wicked in me

for I long, I long to be so close to You
to commune with You, to hear You

in the secret place of the most High
theres no other place, I’d rather be

the heart is deceitful
change my heart, Oh God
take the stony heart
give me a heart of flesh
no one knows me like You
You read my heart well
intentions that burn within
purified, tried and true
like fire purifies gold
like diamonds from coals

search me
try me, Oh God
and see if there’s anything wicked in me

for I long, I long to be so close to You
to commune with You, to hear You

in the secret place of the most High
there’s no other place, I’d rather be

charm is so deceitful
change my heart, Oh God
beauty is fleeting and vain
give me clean hands
give me a pure heart
teach me to number my days
in humility I vow on my knee
what separates me from You
let sin be far from my life
deep that calls me unto deep

for I long, I long to be close to You
to commune with You, to hear You

in the secret place of the most High
there’s no other place, I’d rather be

search me,
try me, Oh God
and see if there’s anything wicked in me

Total Surrender

There is a moment of quiet surrender in every storm. A hush as the whispers quietly breeze through the leaves. A steadfast resolve with roots planted deep, to be unmovable by the winds and rain that will soon rage again.

There is a pause when the noises thundering around you cease. The whisper of love brushes against your ear and the kiss of peace is planted on your cheek.

That place comes with a fierce determination to see things through Gods eyes. An unshakable, gut-turning desire to show and be love to the dark that threatens the world around you. That place is typically found on your knees.

When you get your knees under you, the sound of your breaking heart isn’t so loud.

When you get your knees under you, the strongholds start to break.

When you get your knees under you in total surrender, the truth can be seen clearly. Forgiveness can be easily given. Grace can be extended past lengths that seem to be too far.

Maybe, it’s not about the storm strengthening you, maybe it’s about total surrender to the King of Kings.

Change your view and maybe you can change the world.

“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14

Technologies Screams

Ticking of clocks

Dinging of texts

Ringing of cell phones

Oh – what is next?

Demand

Demand

Demand

All day and all night

It separates me from you, there is no finish in sight

I battle through the masses

You’re all I need

I turn off the ticking, the dinging, the rings

I soak up the silence, the peace like a dream

You’re right beside me

You silence technologies scream

You tell me you love me

And you were here before

But now I can hear you

The world’s roar is no more

—Erin Bovat

Walk Into The Fire

Now is the time to rise from our rest

To rise up stronger & pass the test

Walk into the fire

Let’s build something new

Get our lives restyled

Change our point of view

Be spontaneous & wilder

Release passion untamed

In glorious disorder

Energy unrestrained

Crazy & unplanned

Drop out of the chorus

And play with the band

Be feisty & fiery

Frantic & furious

Embrace the unexpected

Be blown by the wind

Wherever it take us

With love in our hearts

Intense & reckless

We will climb higher

Than ever before

Seeing new vistas

That stir & inspire

We’ll capture our dreams

Motivate & create

New connections

Restyle our lives

Cross over mountains

Tame raging seas

Let us be the pioneers

The explorers

The emotional engineers

That unite hearts & minds

With the intensity

The amazing creativity

In our desire to walk onwards

In the fire of love.

A Song From The Soul

poetry
is a song from the soul
what do I sing about today?
everything is so different than “normal”
i’ve worked so hard to convert my perspectives from death, into life
and I have changed
am i in a new forging fire?
what will my new “normal” become?
my brain wants to shift backward
fiery darts fly
butterflies flutter
i wet my shield with The Water of The Word
lessons of Faith on recall
have i learned them well enough to hold steady?
having done all to stand
the outcome is not in my hands
except
to remember
He is making all things new.
