What I'm Listening To: "You Revive Me" by Christy Nockels

When my heart is heavy, my soul is thirsty, and life feels like a desert... the air so thick and suffocating, God draws me to worship. He invites me to rest, to lay down every struggle and heartache, every need and longing, and find comfort in him. He breathes his life into me and the dry and waterless desert becomes instead a river of joy where his power reigns and his grace and mercy are abundant. 

Strength and life flow freely and lavishly as he revives me...

"O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land where there is no water. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
~Psalm 63:1, 3-5

"The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it." 
 ~Matthew 13:45-46

"Oh Lord, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts."  
~Isaiah 26:8

This is the third post in a series called, "What I'm Listening To: How God is Wooing My Heart Through Song"
