Like a flood; overwhelming, I let it come, crushing, defeating But, subside it must, let it fall again into the ocean Let it fall again into the depths of bottomless sea Let it not, wash over me Turning my back, I walk towards the still waters of Your presence It is the only place to be You love me, I feel the touch of your tender understanding You whisper words of hope, am I to listen? Can I go there again, believing? I had boldly come, asking You to step in, I stood on Your word Proclaiming - Declaring But all I now see is my shame, my confusion, all I now feel, is my pain But look up I must, I must see Jesus, I must see Jesus Right now, I am scared of my heart, because You see it I was tempted to stop trusting You, and even I saw that But I come to You, because You are Holy, and come I must Because I know You love me, You have my trust I will faithfully come, despite what I see, and I will declare victory And even though I see nothing, I will believe Cleanse my heart Lord, set me free Set me free from this threatening sea But look up I must, I must see Jesus, It has to be Jesus
Petrina Kent – March 2016
I wrote this at the beginning of the year after a month of fasting before God for breakthrough, which I thought we had – but then came the realisation that we were still held fast in the storm and nearly washed away. Forgive me if I’ve posted this before, but, I am now walking into a season where God is opening my spiritual eyes and I am seeing just how much He did hear my prayers and hearts cry, and I see the army on the hillside; I see the mighty hand of God at work. I am seeing Jesus. If we unwaveringly fix our eyes on Him – we will stand. I trust and pray that this will bless someone out there who reached out and touched the hem of Jesus garment. Please know – he felt it!
