Centered On Jesus

For some it is power and others seek fame
Some long for riches and many play games
Then there are those who make knowledge their aim
I’d rather seek after the Lord

Some find that drugs help them get through this life
Some use their strength to make others comply
Then there are those who can’t make up their mind
I’ll set me mind on the Lord

Centered on Jesus
Seeking His way
Knowing His truth
His words I obey
Mercy He gives me
Grace flows so free
I’m centered on Jesus
That’s where I will be

If you’re looking for me I’m not very far
Just find out where Jesus is I’ll be right there
Sitting beside Him and hearing His word
Learning His truth forevermore

Jesus has everything I’ll ever need
Jesus has wisdom to help me succeed
Jesus has promised that my life He’ll keep
My life is centered on Him

Centered on Jesus
Seeking His way
Knowing His truth
His words I obey
Mercy He gives me
Grace flows so free
I’m centered on Jesus
That’s where I will be

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

My Heart Sings

I’ve sought after riches, wealth and fame
I’ve done what I could  to bolster my name
I’ve traveled to places and then back again
I’ve lived a life full of good things

Then I looked at what I had come to possess
And I realized all this was meaningless
Because in the end, my life was a mess
The result of this life would sting

For I had neglected my soul in all this
I decided to give up the life I thought bliss
And give my life to the Saviors sweet kiss
He came and made my heart sing

If you’re in a circle of meaningless life
Why not come in to the Saviors sweet side
And in Him forever you can abide
Safely in love with the King

 

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Meaningless

Escape The Rat Race

There’s a pattern this world likes to follow
Of hustle and bustle and fame
Go after riches and fortune
Live life and never be tame

I use a pattern that’s different
That seeks peace and joy, love and hope
Following Jesus is simpler
Then the pattern that makes this world cope

Why not step out and come with me
Escape the rat race as they say
Come to the Savior, He’s waiting
To change your life’s pattern today
