Fall Afresh

This morning, "Fall Afresh" 
by Jeremy Riddle was on repeat.
My heart was responding to the cry
for the Holy Spirit to come and awaken my soul,
that the Spirit of the living God 
would fall afresh on me.
Spirit of the living God

Come fall afresh on me.

Blow through the caverns of my soul

Pour in me to overflow.

My cry is that the Lord come
into those cavern places
and pour out His life and light.
Holy Spirit, fall afresh on me.
In those places where I am not awake--
where I don't see You and hear You and sense You--
breathe Your life into me.
This has been a season of challenge, 
and I know there have been days of shallow breathing.
There have been days where I have felt the gasping.
But You want me filled with Your life.
I want You at the center of all I am.
I am asking that Your mercy blow through
the cavern places of my soul.
I stand in Your presence where the winds blow freely
and my soul can be filled with Your life.
It is where I am filled with Your peace.
It is where I am filled with Your love.
Help me not leave where You are.
Your love and mercy are the filters 
through which I find beauty and purpose.
Spirit of the living God, 
come fall afresh on me.
