“But let those who run to You for safety be glad they did; let them break out in joyful song.
May You keep them safe— their love for You resounding in their hearts. You, O Eternal, are the One who lays all good things in the laps of the right-hearted. Your blessings surround them like a shield.” Psalm 5:11-12 (VOICE)

“But the unfailing love of the Eternal is always and eternal for those who reverently run after Him. He extends His justice on and on to future generations,  To those who will keep His bond of love and remember to walk in the guidance of His commands.” Psalm 103:17-18 (VOICE)

{heart cry} My passion for You, Lord, knows no bounds! I will run to You with joy overflowing from my heart. You refine me and bless me with hope, Your angels comfort and protect me, and Your glory shines forth in and through my life. You are beyond my wildest expectations! I surrender my will to Yours and offer You my heart, which beats for You alone. Overflow me with Your love.

Intense energy falling like waves, stirring up the atmosphere with hope and joy, childlike faith, increasing your passion exponentially. Overflow, overflow, overflowing. Hear His roar – possession in its sound – He is proclaiming you are His! His hosts surround you and the supernatural is ripe, wanting to break forth. Your heart cry is echoing forth, pouring from you like the sweetest of songs. Rejoice in His love. Rejoice in His sovereignty. Rejoice in Him. The hour has come for the bride to meet the Groom. Freedom reigns in this place and the angels in heaven are rejoicing crying, “Holy! Holy! Holy is the King!” Arise beloved, your King is here and He delights in your praise. Raise your banners of love to the sky and rejoice!

The name of the silk in this image is You are My Passion. The colors in it are fuchsia representing passion, pink representing passion for Jesus, and black representing deep calls unto deep. The lyrics to Jesus Culture’s “You are my Passion” are connected both to this silk and the art. “I’m alive to bring glory to You, King. God of victory, You are my passion. It’s in the way You are, You don’t change at all. Great and humble God, You are my passion. | My strength in life is I am Yours. My soul delights because I am Yours. Your will on earth is all I’m living for. Jesus, I glorify; Jesus, my love is Yours. You are my heart’s desire; I live to know You more. | Light that breaks the darkness, showing what true love is Always full of goodness, You are my passion. You never do me wrong, the meekest Man, but strong. The most perfect song, You are my passion.”

Father, thank You for loving me. Thank You for playing with me and drawing me in, for rejoicing with me – my cup overflows! You are righteous and holy and Your love endures for ever, yet I have captured Your affections and You take delight in me. May I never lose sight of the gift of Your love.
