The islands shall see your glory

The wars shall see your might

The nations shall see your beauty

Awestruck at your sight

.

The humble shall see your glory

The pure shall see your face

The oppressed shall see your mercy

The past to be erased

.

The earth shall see your glory

The works of your hand

Creation sings your melody

All across this land

.

Children shall see your glory

And babes speak your praise

Sons and daughters of destiny

Running to win the race

.

And we shall see your glory

As we overcome

Praying breathes of intimacy

Come Lord Jesus come

.

As I watch the hail fall outside our storefront window,

My mind is somewhere outside in the distance somehow.

.

O the places I would go,

And the cool things I would do!

.

Some dreams birth and burst and linger,

Others plague the heart forever.

.

(And I pray that a few would fit inside your master plan,

As I know all things You uphold in the palm of your hand)

.

As I watch the rain fall outside our storefront window,

Your mind is focused on me on the wet earth below.

.

As calm as the ocean sea

The sound washes over me

As healing as the soothing balm

Let the wave come, let it come


As still as the morning sky

It’s gentleness I shall ride

As bright as the closest star

Resonating strings on guitar


Colorful as the autumn leaves

The wind blows her breeze

As deep as the submarine

The stains are made clean


Notes sustained to signify

Worship, sung to glorify

Drawing near to the beauty

Of heaven’s eternity


Closer kneeling before the throne

Before the Father’s very own

Son I bow and wholly adore

I play the very chord

Rest in His faithfulness

That’s all I know to do

Ever pursuing His presence

Drawing near in truth


Ah I see the one I love

I admire with adoration

Captured, focused as a dove

With undivided attention


You wiped away my weariness

You destroy my fears

Break the yoke of heaviness

And vision becomes clear


I release the burdens

That has weighed me down

And I know for certain

You’ll never let me drown


In your house I will be found

Finding myself at home

In my weakness you have come

And called me as your own


Satisfy me today and forever

Satisfy my longing

Always extravagant and clever

To overwhelm my being


Fresh love for today

And tomorrow too

Always here to stay

So faithful and true

I lay myself down at your feet

Waiting just to hear You speak

Every word your lips declare

Is everything I want to hear


So I am hanging on these words

Believing it’ll erase my hurts

Reaching for your living breath

Knowing it will kill my death


Though I fall now and again

Slipping down yet never far

From your always reaching hands

Pulling back my reckless heart


So here I am found at your feet

Dying, longing to hear You speak

Determined to hold the precious gold

Which restores my soul, making me whole


Now I lay down at your feet

Falling ‘sleep into your dream

Sanctified, free and clean

In your presence, so sweet

welcome home…

...to a place where you can relax and refresh your spirit.

Draw close to God.
Get intimate with Him.
Drink until you overflow
with His love.

Here are some spiritual nourishments for your soul. Read the devotionals, poems, and songs. Soak and be filled in His presence. Enjoy!

Come to me,
all you who labor
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

Matt 11:28
