Something About Everything

Something….
Missing inside me is something,
Missed by a heaving heart.
Like a separation,
From somewhere I’m meant to be.
Like a separation,
From someone I’m meant to be with.

Nothing….
To quench the thirst there is nothing,
To quench the thirst in my soul.
There are places that can enchant,
And make you feel alive,
But only for a while.
There are people who fill the void,
But never ever, forever.

One thing….
Can there ever be any one thing,
That I could need, more than this..?
To eternally be,
In that place,
In the loving embrace,
Of the Person,
Who is the Father,
To Christ the sinless One,
And to me, His sinful son..?
The Father,
Who loves us both,
All the same..?

Everything….
All I can have is everything,
When I have Him, I have all there is.

Without Him

When you see yourself as strong,
Remember how weak you were.
When you see yourself as kind,
Remember how reckless and rude you were.
When you see yourself as wise,
Remember the fool that you once were.
When you see yourself as bold,
Remember the coward that you were.
When you see you have a heart that loves,
Remember how cold it were.
When you see you have unbreakable faith,
Remember how brittle it once were.
When you see yourself as a righteous man,
Remember the sinner that you were.
At the end of it all,
When you see that you’ve done your duties in life,
Remember the nothing that you were,
When you stood by yourself,
And leaned not on Him.


Help me remember, Lord. Amen.

A New Season

How long..? How long..?
Can I stay away..?
How long can I stay away,
From all I’m meant to be..?
The desire,
Is no passing thought,
But a longing
Deep within me.
Memories though,
Like pictures on the wall,
Remind me of all
The times I tried,
And failed.
“Pick up.
Pick yourself up.”,
He says.
“Just try.
Just try again.”
