Heart after Your Heart (2)

Post  Fenny West on Fri 19 Jun 2009, 11:42 am


Lord, my heart is your garden
A place to be better than Eden
Place purchased with your blood
Where I cherish what I heard
Where I nourish with your word.

O that I will keep it open to you
Make it a place for separation
Consecration- not an open common.
But walled, hedged in with the word.

O that it will not be a wilderness
Wild with worldly wares, tares and cares,
But a place of peace, beauty, serenity;
Blooming and bubbling with You.

O that it will be a place of growth
In grace and the knowledge of the Lord
Yielded to Jesus the Husbandman
and the Holy Spirit the dew.

O that my heart will be a place
Of holy divine retirement, refreshment;
A place of your manifest presence
Three in One, Father, Son and Spirit.

Keep the gate of my heart, O Lord
O that it’ll see the sweet showers
Of your grace, new every morning.
Triggering the choicest, rarest
Unspeakable bloom of roses and lilies;
A place imitating Mary and not Martha;
A heart after Your heart, like David's.




Inspired by a C. H Spurgeon devotional
