My Desire

In Deuteronomy and John the writers say, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength,” and “A time … has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.” After continually being drawn to and spending time in these scriptures, and after really pressing in to searching for the answer to the question ‘what is God looking for?’ my earnest response was a desire to give the Lord my whole heart in worship for all He has done for me. I know these verses speak also to a broader act of living a lifestyle of worship and not just musical worship, but because the Lord continues to draw forth a song-response from me, I knew this heart-cry needed to be written and sung in order to be fully realized by me, for me. It needed to become a part of me. This song has even aided in the process of what God is still doing in redeeming the gift of music, redeeming my voice, and continuing to draw me towards composition and songwriting. My hope is that these words and this song will become a heart-response for you as well in your pursuit of loving God with your whole heart.

Here are the lyrics to “My Desire.”

My desire is to worship You
With all I am in Spirit and truth
So come and wake this heart of mine
Bring me in, into your presence

With all I am
With all I know
With all my strength
I give you now
I worship you
I worship you
Redeemer and Deliverer

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord
