Instantly my heart is awakened.
The Breath of Heaven that carries His Voice is summoning me again, the
word of the Lord has come.
Captivated by His Voice, I surrender my soul to embrace His Words.
Time ceases to exist as eternity invades in Heavenly visitation and I am
transported into heavenly realms.
Overwhelming light, overwhelming love HE is near.
His Presence engulfs me, the fragrance of His Name ravishes my heart.
I am totally His in that moment of unspeakable joy.
I hear and feel the majestic force of His spoken Word as my entire being is
