Whispers In My Heart

Updated on March 18, 2010

Desire To Be Like You

Darkness will follow as we go through times of pain

Shelter is what I desire when the rain pours with no gain

I listen for whispers inside my heart

whispers from you can set my feet on solid ground

your whispers inside my heart keep me from falling down.


There are times in my life when I can't hold on

there are dreams that keep me going

but whispers from you are what I long for

whispers of love, whispers of joy, more of peace

that gives me this great release from darkness so deep

that only your touch can control.


There is nothing that can keep me from reaching out for truth

whispers inside my heart from you lead me on while storms try to take me

your love unfolds deep within.


Even when the pain is real, I stand for your ways and your truth

no matter how I feel.


So whisper Lord Jesus inside my heart,

help me keep the joy inside, help me know I'm still alive.

      Amen to all your comments, listening is hard, but being still and being alone with the Lord at times, we can hear His low whispers in our hearts.

      "Be still, and know that I am God." We have to be still to hear the whispers.

      As the deer pants for the water, so does my soul for you Heavenly Father. Despite I wonder away sometimes, my heart reaches for the things Yours delights in.

      The the Lord said, "Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by." Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountain apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. Then a voice said to him, "What are you doing here, Elijah" 1 Kings 19:11-13

      It's the whispers I long to hear as well. Life is never easy, but Oh the whispers that call us out - those that come from the Lord Jesus are so wonderful. thanks for the read. be blessed
