With all your heart
With all your soul
With all your strength -Deut 4:29;Jere 29:13;Deut 6:5

Let your whole being follow hard after Me -Ps 63:8
The more you seek Me with your whole heart
The more you will find Me

… to those who love Me
… to those who know My name
… to those who earnestly wait in hope for Me

In the shadow of My protective wings
… they sing for joy
… rejoice with gladness
… celebrate in joyful triumph!
