My Desire

This poem was written with inspiration from Scott’s blog this morning.  You can read it at  THIS ADDRESS

I used to desire riches
I thought they would satisfy
And though I gathered up many
My heart had a lonely cry

I used to desire pleasures
That took all my riches away
They made me feel good for a moment
Then pay for them dearly next day

I used to desire real power
So I could feel big and alive
But pride was what then resulted
I fell flat on my face and I cried

Then I learned of someone named Jesus
Who would fill the desires of my heart
I did not believe it was possible
But I needed a brand new start

I knelt down one day at the altar
I slowly looked up to the sky
Then I cried out to Him
Asking Him to come in
That day my life changed on the fly

My desire is now for just Jesus
He is all that I want or need
He fills me with love
His joy fills my cup
And to top it all off I have peace

If your soul is longing for more
And you never are satisfied
Just cry out to Him
Asking Him to come in
And you’ll suddenly feel alive
