Hand Over The Key to Love


Depths of purpose and layers of meaning saturate everything You do

(From the grace series)

It is so enjoyable to come before You with uncontainable praises spilling from our hearts! How we love to sing our praises over and over to You, to the matchless God, high and exalted over all! Psalm 92:1 TPT

Hand Over The Key to Love


Have you ever longed to hold

The key to another’s heart

To see them light up and glow within

Like light overtakes the dark



Have you longed to love

Be loved back with a vengeance

To know this kind of love

Oh feelings available and endless


What if you never had to fear

Afraid that love would leave

But you could fully trust

At last you had received



Oh to think of a love so pure

To imagine a love so strong

To truly know and understand

It is yours and to you belonged


That you were more than enough

To be loved through and through

Well I have come to share

That is exactly how God loves you


He sent His only Son

To come deliver the news

That God had made a way

For you beaten scourged and bruised


Why would He do this what was He thinking

He longs for you to understand

That you’ve held the key to His Heart

On your love He makes a demand


For God so loved the world

He gave His only begotten Son

That whosoever would not perish

Believe then rest secure in His eternal Love


A Father who comes to fight like this

Wow can you even imagine

Why would He do it what was His plan

You hold the key to His heart,

Can you just fathom


A love so strong that won’t let go

A love that will search you out

I know you’ve been feeling His draw

Reach in your pocket and pull it out


That key you’ve been holding

Fits the lock to open your heart

You closed it off long ago

And now is the time to start


Open and unclench your fist

You’re safe, hand that key to Jesus

That anger you held against God

It belongs to satan the lying deceiver


Jesus came to make a way

You’re safe in His love and Care

Jesus has come to rescue you

Follow Him! Unending love waits there

Melodies of praise fill the air as every musical instrument, joined with every heart, overflows with worship. No wonder I’m so glad; I can’t keep it in! Lord I’m shouting with glee over all You have done, for all You’ve done for me! What mighty miracles and Your power at work, just to name a few. Depths of purpose and layers of meaning saturate everything You do. Psalm 92:3-5 TPT

As God’s chosen instrument, He created as His masterpiece, a people to make sounds with our larynx and mouth, He created us to speak. So we are vocalist.  We therefore have instruments of percussion. We are His sumphoneo (pronounced soom-fo-neh-o) His symphony.  Our whole bodies are a praise. We bow our heads, we bend our knees, prostrate with faces to the ground, we fold or lift holy hands, we set our feet to dancing, we sing, we cry out, and when we do this in unity or harmoniously we become his sumpheneo, His symphony. May we not only lift our praises but become His praise. In the scriptures above we see what love really is. It comes from an internal deposit by Holy Spirit on the inside. This love is from the inside out. Love is much more than an emotion, it is an explosion of His goodness poured into us, then we in turn pour into others.

In this the week of love, I encourage you to learn of Jesus and grow  in love with Him. He is our pure Love and Valentine. His heart poured out His never ending love proving this.

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom.

Until next time, thanks for listening with me. Laurette
