My heart listens, yes, my heart is tuned in
To the only One who can speak with pure Life,
The truths of wonder that set me free from sin.
My heart listens as my heart leaves all strife.
As I sit here with nothing, yet I know I have all
I am open before Him so my heart sings,
I have the Son! My spirit is open, I hear His call. .
And I will rise unto Him with my wings.
I’m listening, Lord, please speak to me
Your loving servant is present before You
Without You I’m lost and have no cause to be
No sense to my breath unless You come to me anew.
Now my heart quiets and is open and hears
The One I love, I see Him now, He is the only One!
Hush, my spirit, for He is here
What Joy! I have the Son! I have the Son!
“Where did you meet Him?” You ask. Oh, how can I express this wonder to you?
He Met Me in places so very unexpected. He Met Me in my many and deep losses, for sure, to comfort me and hold me till my exhausted body, soul and spirit melted in His arms…there I laid upon His Heart in great sobs. He Met Me in my times of breaking down, of what seemed to be every fiber of my being, which caused me to barely gasp in His quiet Presence. He Met Me as I cried my heart out in deep loneliness and let me feel His personal love for me. He Met Me in my quiet walks in the fields under His beautiful blue sky, reminding me of my eternal home with Him above. He Met Me as I tried to pray, yet could only murmur a sigh, but also in the moving rivers of prayer that seemed to flow out in torrents as well. He Met Me in great joys, in sobering sorrows, in my quest for Him and in my quest for light and truth and peace. He Met Me when I was sure it was time for me to pass over into glory, as I was totally enveloped in peace that was unearthly, yet recovered me to walk with Him still more upon this earth. He Met Me when I was with my family and others and let me know what He was feeling so I could grow in understanding, loving them with joy and experience that closeness with Jesus. He Met Me when I felt alone or rejected or misunderstood so I could feel that intimacy with Him, for He, Himself, felt those same emotions just as I did. And He Met Me when I was hopeful and happy and expressed my deepest desires for more of my Father’s Heart, for more of Him, My Love, My Everything…for more intimacy with Him. He met me Face to Face.
He Always Met Me, for I am His own possession, for all Eternity.
