Often there is a restlessness when the Lord is preparing for a move or a new work. May times it is a signal the eagle is stirring His nest. It’s as if one minute you are settled and suddenly a restlessness occurs that you are unable to shake. It’s our Master readying us from within. This is a good time to press into prayer for His heart. Many questions flow from my own heart when this begins to happen with me. Questions for direction and the ability to discern well His desire. Also, there becomes a deep hunger in my soul that longs for a deeper knowledge of His ways and a yearning to to draw near to His kindness and heart longings.
Oh Lord, what is this burden
Which presses onto my heart
A birthing of Your own longings
That soon will leave Your mark.
A grief that there’s no longer
A desire to know Thy heart well
But to surrender to man made antics
With no divine glory resting there.
O God where is Thy glory
It’s a dry and thirsty land
Your well is full of plenty
But draw it does not the man.
A valley full of dry bones
With graves covered in sand
You ask can these bones live child?
I answer “if You send Your wind.”
So breathe dear God till they rattle
Till bone to bone does stand
And those still covered in sinews
Do fill them with breath again.
Do stir up deep while we’re sleeping
Pursue Lord that which is dead
Pour out your lovingkindness
To make us a quite gentle man.
O’ Tender our hearts to Your longings
Rapture us into Thy arms
Awaken by waves of deep stirrings
A people to hear such alarms.
