One Unbroken Gaze

"One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
and to seek Him in His temple."
Psalm 27:4
Beholding is becoming.
Turn up your volume a bit. This worship song has blessed my heart the last few days. Just love it! It has become my heart's prayer. "May my life be one unbroken gaze fixed upon the beauty of Your face."
CAPTIVATED (By Vicky Beeching)
Your laughter it echoes like a joyous thunder
Your whisper it warms me like a summer breeze
Your anger is fiercer than the sun in its splendour
You’re close and yet full of mystery
Ever since the day that I saw Your face
Try as I may, I cannot look away,
I cannot look away…
Captivated by You
I am captivated by You
May my life be one unbroken gaze
Fixed upon the beauty of Your face
Beholding is becoming, so as You fill my gaze
I become more like
You and my heart is changed
Beholding is becoming, so as You fill my view
Transform me into the likeness of You
This is what I ask, for all my days
That I may, never look away, never look away…
No other could ever be as beautiful
No other could ever steal my heart away
I just can’t look away…
Captivated by You
I am captivated by You
May my life be one unbroken gaze
Fixed upon the beauty of Your face

This is just beautiful Sharon. How wonderful it will be when we will be able to forever look upon His face. I do look forward to that day. Have a great weekend!

Sharon - I'm amazed and well, loving God right now. He is so amazing and I am captivated. You see, I am speaking next week at a church (my first time speaking away from my home church). The title of my talk...CAPTIVATED. And I was praying for a song. And so I listened to the Christian radio today...nothing. And then I came to your blog. God was here today, Sharon. He used you BIG today, as an answer to prayer for me, for a song for my talk, CAPTIVATED. Thank you.

I am just so in awe of a God who answers our every prayer so amazingly and so perfectly. Praise your holy name, Jesus!

Wow. Wow. Wow. And did I mention.....wow!?!?

God is amazing! He is going ahead of you and preparing for whatever He has you sharing as you speak next week. May His touch and annointing be on you and all of the hearts there! Can't wait to hear about it.

How encouraging that HE gave you this song CAPTIVATED through this little thing we call "Bloggityville". You have encouraged me today as well by reading this. He has used you to answer a prayer for me. I am humbled and thankful.

Beholding is becoming.

May our lives be one unbroken gaze fixed upon the beauty of His face.

Thanks for your comment at my blog! (I often don't come back to read comments after I've left one, so I'm glad you did leave it at my site too!)

I am blogging about this on Monday, and linking to you. It is just too amazing not to share with this whole bloggy community.

And yes, God's sense of humor never fails. (musical blogs!) That is why I love him. I need a laugh now and again. But I did tell you that I always enjoy the music on your blog. I wonder if that is why He met me here?

Have a blessed Sunday. We're off to church.
