Holy Spirit

Holy Spirit, you are welcome here

Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere

I love this song. I have sung it at camp and truly felt the presence of God. I have sung it at church and my heart prepared for the teaching to come and God’s spirit to enlighten new truth in me.

Your glory, God, is what our hearts long for
To be overcome by your presence, Lord

But the other day this song was playing on repeat in my head and I was softly singing while I was at home going about normal household duties. Then I suddenly stopped and thought- YES! This is exactly the song that should be the soundtrack of my home. These lyrics should be the prayer of my momma/wife/ministry leader heart as I go about all my day.

Let us become more aware of your presence
Let us experience the glory of your goodness

Not at church camp, not in a beautiful chapel- in my everyday life. In the boring, in the messy, in the victories and the defeats I want to be aware of His presence. I want my home to say- Holy Spirit you are welcome here.

There’s nothing worth more that will ever come close
No thing can compare, you’re our living hope

I believe this is the key to having that kind of home- making God’s favor worth more than anything else in my life. It has to be worth more than an organized schedule. Has to be valued over a clean house. Has to be sought after harder than well behaved kids. It has to be greater than an outward ministry.  Those are all good things, and those are all things that my heart desires so much especially as school starts back up and we get back to a ‘normal routine’.  I am so tempted to make those things the goal.  But when the goal of my heart becomes to experience God, I can truly sing-

I’ve tasted and seen, of the sweetest of loves
Where my heart becomes free, and my shame is undone
By your presence, Lord

Holy Spirit, You are welcome here
Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere
Your glory, God, is what our hearts long for
To be overcome by Your presence, Lord
