TurnTurn my gaze to you.

But more than my eyes, turn my heart.

I want to feel Your heartbeat so loudly that mine begins to drum on rhythm with Yours.

Not to the things You do or the blessings You give, although they abound.

To You.

The beauty of Your face. The sense of Your presence. The calm. Peace. Joy. Rest. Of You.

Turn my thoughts and affections. Don’t let me fly by today on the seat of my pants. Always running. Panting. Past You.

I want to turn. Not in to feed my emotions. Not just out as I love on others. But up.

Captivated … I can’t turn away … from You.
