Like water

The phrase “Like water poured out” has been going through my mind lately, it reminds me of when King David wanted a drink from the well of Bethlehem and three of his mighty men broke through the Philistine army’s line and brought him a pitcher of water from the well.

David refused to drink it because basically he knew that only God was worthy of a life sacrifice, instead he poured it out on the ground as an offering to God.

Sometimes it feels like the things/people we sacrifice towards have no reciprocal value, no one notices or somehow you begin to feel like people take a sacrifice for granted or worse yet, simply use you for their own advantage be it intentional or not.

I’ve decided that I want to GIVE people an advantage from my life, but that’s different than letting them TAKE an advantage of you.

So to help keep my heart aligned I spend time in His Presence, the ultimate wasted sacrifice…see there are a lot of people who go to hell and waste what Jesus freely offered them…

Like water poured out
On a dry and thirsty ground here is my heart.

Like the mother of a newborn waiting
For the faintest sound, well there You are.

You pick me up,
You dust me off,
You set me on my feet again.


You make my heart to beat,
You set me free,
And then you call me friend.

Dark the days when I forget how kind You are,
Dark my heart when I let fear take me that far,
Bright my path when You show up and sing my name,
And call me friend…(this joy will never end)

A thousand suns shining
At the brightest time of day would seem to dark.

When I compare it
To the brilliance of Your love and who You are.

If all the sea’s were ink
And the sky one giant scroll.
It’d be a place to small to write all the love You’ve shown.

Dark the days when I forget how kind You are
Dark my heart when I let fear take me that far
Bright my path when You show up and sing my name
And call me friend…(this joy will never end)

Like water poured out
On a dry and thirsty ground here is my praise.

I long to move You, long to touch You, leave my kiss upon Your face.

You rule the heavens,
Rule the oceans,
Rule the beating of my heart.

I long to know You, long to see You and to be right where You are.


Dark the days when I forget how kind You are

Dark my heart when I let fear take me that far
Bright my path when You show up and sing my name
And call me friend…(this joy will never end)
