expectation

i just heard this song for the first time a few weeks ago on a sunday night.

it absolutely melted my heart.

i can't even begin to describe the feelings of worship, devotion, love, and yearning that were stirred inside me. (and the beautiful voice of christal noland certainly didn't hurt it any!)

the words are so simple, yet so powerful.

the more i seek you
the more i find you
the more i find you
the more i love you

i want to sit at your feet
drink from the cup in your hand
lay back against you and breathe
feel your heart beat

this love is so deep
it's more than i can stand
i melt in your peace
it's overwhelming

it was sung again in last night's service. it's like i was hearing it again for the first time.

doug eccles spoke on why God moves in one place or one person and not another...is it the location, the timing, the speaker, the audience?

his answer...

EXPECTATION

one word...amazing how it puts things into perspective.

yes, the song is wonderful and the words hit home...but the song is not the source of my feelings.

when i hear the song begin to play, i immediately EXPECT God to stir something in my heart.

and what do you know? He comes through every time.

that first sunday i heard the song, i just cried out to God.

"Lord, i want to sit at your feet, drink from your cup, feel your heart beat. i can't wait for the day when i can just sit and bask in your overwhelming glory."

His answer...

"what are you waiting for?"

"Expectation is the breeding ground for a miracle". This was indrained in us at bible college. You must believe that something is going to happen. A little Faith goes a long way. Thanks for the reminder crys.

This song was part of our "Whatever" retreat last Fall and will be included in retreat this Fall as well. It speaks so deeply of my heart as well.

Jesus said "When you seek me with all your heart, you will find me."

May my heart be ever filled with "Expectation."
