Dancing with my heart, my words, my song, and my love, before my God…

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who
LOVE YOUR NAME may rejoice in you. Psalms 5:11

You Belong Here

Your name has me looking to something so fascinating.  

Like a mist I walk into, 
I release the process of the kingdom that came, 
and I begin to feel the moisture that refreshes my soul.  

Lifting my face, 
I ask for this shower to soak me.  

Weakened by darkness that presses, 
I run to this open heaven 
and wonder about, 
for Your Name gives new signs and wonders 
to the thirst of my craving heart.  

I move my hand through my hair 
as my eyes close 
and I ponder what will arise from our walk?  

I know only that I have leaned forward 
to lay close to the fire of this call 
which takes me in like sinking quick sand; 
slowly determined to not let go 
until I am swallowed by its power.   

I find this substance becoming a voice 
that produces a knowing, 
a knowing that love is now breathing for me, 
love is now moving my spirit 
to take hold of what is coming.  

Can the air speak?  

Can the light transform before me a form?  

Can the way I bat my eye 
be a million ways to worship 
the Name Jesus?  

Can I dance such a glorious move 
by simply running my belief 
around this Name 
that breaks my lips into a smile?   

Has my tongue found a new way to sing?  

Oh what lies before me, 
the float of a thousand words 
I cannot speak but hear; 
a thousand tones I cannot sing 
but I play with them 
up and down the scale of eternity… 

for I have wondered into His arms 
and goodness has given me reasons to stay here.  

My name, who I am, 
dances with 
His Name, who He is; 
and we go beyond words 
the mind tries to attach to love.  

Higher and deeper, 
wide as the thought of never touching; 
His realness fills me 
and I am stunned with His Words, 
you belong here!’  

Oh Lord, I ask 
what are You wanting me to know? 
I often feel it is a visit only.’  

His power begins to soak me 
so that I will receive 
as it carries a message 
I am too weak to hear without, 
He speaks again…
'you belong here, I never leave!

My mind swirls, my heart leaps, 
He finally gets to tell me
what He has been wanting me to hear
for such a long time...!

And I heard Him.
