For Me, This Says It All...

I purposefully didn't make any New Year's resolutions this year; instead, I made a New Year's promise: To pursue the heart of God.

About two months ago, I was introduced to a song by Amber Brooks that has literally become my heart's cry for this coming year. The name of the song is
Come Like You Promised...

Check out the lyrics:


Stir these stagnant waters of my soul,
Merge me with Your river which springs life,
I don’t have all the right words to say
That will provoke You to want me
Anymore than you already do.

So won't You come,
Come like You promised
Pour out Your Spirit,
Pour out Your Spirit!
(repeat)

Come into the darkness where I hide,
Jesus, be the strength of my life.
Reach in past my hiding,
Oh, reach beyond my running,
Oh Lord, flood my soul with Your love!

So won't You come,
Come like You promised
Pour out Your Spirit,
Pour out Your Spirit!
(repeat)

You love like a Father!
You love like a brother!
You love like a Lion,
Fierce Like no other
You violently chase me
Down, to embrace me.
Engulf me,
In who You are!

We want for You to come!
Lord, come like You promised!
Pour out Your Spirit!
Pour out Your Spirit!
We want for You to come!
Lord, come like You promised,
Pour, out Your Spirit,
Pour out Your Spirit…
(repeat)
