When you open your generous hand,
it’s full of blessings,
satisfying the longings of every living thing.Psalm 145:16 The Message
A few years ago I wrote my first song, it came from a deep place of longing to meet daily with the Lord.
Basically, it was a journal entry- as I was wrote the words, a melody swirled around and I realized that it was a song.
In the morning I will seek you
I will listen for your voice
I tune my heart to sing your praise
And you will be my joyI Am Satisfied Carly Carey
For most of my life I’d tried to read the Bible and pray everyday, knowing that it was good for me.
I longed to know Him, to be in communion with Him.
Time. That was the issue. Or at least that’s what I thought.
At night I will remember
That in You I find my rest
The countless times Your grace has found me
I am filled with thankfulnessI Am Satisfied Carly Carey
So I made a plan!
Before the rest of the house would wake up I’d sit with Him. Read His Word. Pray. Write down bits and pieces of my heart…
and He used it all.
I am satisfied
My lips will glorify
The One who sets me free and saves my life
Lord You’re my supply
The One who fills my cup, who hears my cryI Am Satisfied Carly Carey
I built in a routine that now, five years later, is still in place. It has been life changing. Bringing forth the passion and purpose that I was created for!
Many more Songs of Deliverance have surfaced through this intentional space- created for daily communion.
Your Living Word guides my heart
Draws me close to You
Quiet waters to my soul
I cling to Your truth
My heart is full and overflowing
With this treasure I have found
Blessings beyond measure
Lord, my life, You’ve overwhelmedI Am Satisfied Carly Carey
Day 13- Make space.
