I enjoy my quiet times spent in prayer and worship. But some of my most intimate conversations with the Lord have been silent heart- rendering deeply personal, encounters that caused a positively satisfying change to my life. Many times I have no real plan to have a heart to heart with God but I am sure they are lovingly orchestrated by the Holy Spirit.
Expressions of deep-waters flow,
To reveal the precious nuggets of the soul.
Sweet sounds of yearning burning desire,
Is brought to and comes from God’s loving fires.
Digging deep into the hidden places to find,
A selected sacrifice of praise at the appointed time.
Heart-talks speak in different dialects,
To the intended listener selected as best.
Love is the language all understand.
It is felt more than heard in all the lands.
Expressions, impressions, and confessions all the same;
Are personally-conveyed messages the heart proclaims.
Come, rest at the feet of the One you adore;
Heart-to-heart in touch with the loving Lord.
At worship, at work, in play and at rest,
Whole, happy and free, as His, you are truly blessed.
In trouble, in trial, in sickness and in pain,
Heart-talks with the Master breaks unneeded chains.
Jesus is the Word of God and He speaks clear.
With hearts in one-accord, loves- language the world can hear.
Lord, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me;
give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.
Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense;
and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
