Only You

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Your face will I seek, Lord. 
Not Your will
Not Your way
Not today
Only Your face –
the essence of who You are
just to BE with You
to know Your grace
To feel Your eyes
smile down on me
and know that here
we begin again
like Your every morning manna
and mercies
Just You
falling on me
that I may know You
For someday
I will
But for now…
You invite me.
So my heart with David’s says
Your face, Lord,
Will I seek
“When You said, ‘Seek My face,’
My heart said to You,
‘Your face, Lord, I will seek.'”
Psalm 27:8 NKJV
