Holy Spirit you are welcome here



In the middle of the prayer walk we stepping in to what will be our worship center / auditorium.  I shared how we desire for this to be a place where all different kinds of events happen as well as the place where people gather to praise the Lord each week and often.

One of the student leaders led us in worship.  It was a new song to me, but I had heard it on the radio some.  What an awesome and humbling time this was singing together, worshipping and sharing a sweet time.  Yet as we stepped out of worship area one of the student noticed that written on a door facing were the lyrics of this song.

That was a spiritual moment as we realized that we sang, voiced and shared the prayer others had offered in this same place.  You can hear the song at THIS LINK.  The worship was so fresh, real, exciting, drawing and almost electric. 

Here are the lyrics to the song Holy Spirit sung by Francesca Battistelli and others.

There's nothing worth more
That could ever come close
No thing can compare
You're our living hope
Your presence, Lord

I've tasted and seen
Of the sweetest of loves
Where my heart becomes free
And my shame is undone
Your presence, Lord

CHORUS
Holy Spirit, You are welcome here
Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere
Your glory, God, is what our hearts long for
To be overcome by Your presence, Lord

There's nothing worth more
That could ever come close
No thing can compare
You're our living hope
Your presence, Lord

I've tasted and seen
Of the sweetest of loves
Where my heart becomes free
And my shame is undone
Your presence, Lord

Let us become more aware of Your presence
Let us experience the glory of Your goodness

The chorus is a prayer and an invitation to the Holy Spirit.  In our worship it is the Holy Spirit that makes His home in our hearts, who fills our worship and who draws us closer to God.  I long for and love this.  How about you?

May we spend time seeking God and worshipping Him in sweet ways like this leads me to.

Through the power of the Holy Spirit who lives within us, carefully guard the precious truth that has been entrusted to you.
