Heart after Your Heart, like David's
by Fenny West
6/18/2009 / Prayers
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 Holy Dew.
O that my heart will be a place
Of holy divine retirement and refreshment,
A place of your manifest presence and essence-
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 C.H. Spurgeon's devotional
