The Door – Revelation 3:20

The Door – Revelation 3:20

Once I found myself
Keeping endless days
In lost solitude
It seemed like just a cell
Four walls yet no door
No window and no daylight
Trapped here forevermore
But at the last I heard a knocking
Upon a door I’d never seen
With trembling hands I reached
And slowly opened
Not knowing what to find
There He was, the Risen Saviour
And in He came into my life
For those walls just disappeared
There was daylight
Where once only night
In that moment I came alive
Turned my back upon my death
Now when the walls
Start forming once more
I find I reach
Right out for that door

At The Door – Revelation 3:20

At The Door – Revelation 3:20

For oh so long
I could hear the rhythm
Of knuckled flesh
Upon the door it tapped a beat
Of a heart awaiting
A soul to hear
Over and over
Day after day
That beat rang within my ears
Still time and again
My hands cover these ears
That was until
I grew so, so weak
To hold up these arms no more
And as I fell
I heard that beat no longer
And You were there
Stepping within the threshold
Of the cell of all my pain
And as the light hit the walls
The scene so transformed
The cell faded far from view
We sat within the banquet hall
And there I was fed
With truth time and time again
From my hands fell the bottles
From my wrists fell the chains
Beyond death I found a life
And now
There is a beat I still hear
Of a heart so ever near

Closed Door – Revelation 3:20

Closed Door – Revelation 3:20

Is my door open?
As I hide within my walls
Though I sit here
Deep within my chaos
I still hear a knock
On my distant door
Will I rise from my lethargy
To open my door to Him
To let my Lord into my room
To occupy the space within
SO many times I close the door
Trying to refuse His knock
But today I can no longer deny
Here I cross this room
To throw wide open my door
To let Him into my space
To bring peace upon this life

The Banquet & The Door

The Banquet & The Door (Revelation 3:20)

In my shadows
Your light
Fell upon the door
Behind which I heard Your call
With the rhythm of Your knock
I found the strength
To throw wide the door
In You walked
And You sit with me
At the banquet
I could never deserve
Yet Your grace is greater
Your mercy unbounded
So here I can sit
With the humble food
I bring to the table
Made plentiful in Your presence
Made perfect by Your love

Verse of the Day – Revelation 3:20

Revelation 3:20

Revelation 3:20

Last year when I was in the midst of depression, I was put through some training at work that I really wasn’t in the frame of mind for, when it came to the test I sang the lyrics to “When You Walk Into The Room” over and over in my head, I had to remind myself to open the door to Him, there was no way I could do it on my own, I needed Jesus, but I had to open myself up to Him, stop shutting myself off in a room of my own isolation.

WHEN YOU WALK INTO THE ROOM by BRYAN & KATIE TORWALT
When you walk into the room
Everything changes
Darkness starts to tremble
At the light that you bring
And when you walk into the room
Every heart starts burning
And nothing matters more
Than just to sit here at your feet
And worship you
We worship you

We love you
We’ll never stop
We can’t live without you, Jesus
We love you
And we can’t get enough
All this is for you, Jesus

When you walk into the room
Sickness starts to vanish
Every hopeless situation ceases to exist
And when you walk into the room,
The dead begin to rise
‘Cause there is resurrection life
In all You do

Come and consume, God
All we are
We give you permission
Our hearts are Yours
We want You
We want You
