Here's My Heart, Lord...

I stood at the kitchen sink this morning rinsing the breakfast dishes, lost in thought, while David Crowder's "Here's My Heart" played on the stereo. Before I knew it, I was singing along at the top of my lungs on my knees in the middle of the kitchen floor, with arms raised high and tears streaming down my face, pouring my heart out to Jesus and, once again, offering him my heart and life.

I am found, I am Yours
I am loved, I'm made pure
I have life, I can breathe
I am healed, I am free

You are strong, You are sure
You are life, You endure
You are good, always true
You are light breaking through

You are more than enough
You are here, You are love
You are hope, You are grace
You're all I have, You're everything

Here's my heart, Lord….

I can honestly say that every one of those words, those stunningly beautiful and intimate lyrics, are true of my heart and life and what I've come to know and experience of Jesus. As I've walked a very dark and lonely path with him for many years now, those truths have been forever forged deep, deep down in the depths of my soul. They are truer than anything else I know, or anything else I've ever known, and the truth has set me so wonderfully free.

And as I'm coming to the end of that long and winding and difficult season, my heart is so very full. Brimming over and spilling forth. There is laughter and joy and strength and freedom and beauty and hope and passion like I've never known. I wouldn't trade the years of loss and suffering for anything, for what I've gained is a priceless treasure of heavenly worth that I carry with me now and will carry with me still in the beautiful world to come.

Here's my heart, Lord…

Here's my heart.

"How glorious the splendor of the human heart that trusts that it is loved."

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this. I'm still in a very long and difficult season. On and off for 6 years...anxiety, panic attacks, Graves disease. It seems to never end. And it may not, but these words are true. He is more than enough.

    1. Bless you, Libby… Thank you for sharing a bit of your story here. I'm sorry to learn of your struggle and suffering. May Jesus be ever so near, and may you find him in ways you may never have before. You're right… He is more than enough. 1 Peter 5:10
