THE HEART HUNGERS
The heart hungers for more than food
Confused mind torn by stress
Merciless money pressures of the world
Systems and ways of men and women
Weak, foolish and most often not satisfying;
Appetites stirred but never completely filled
Thirst agitated but never fully quenched.
Mind and thoughts of man without peace
Soul of a woman without true rest
Who can find lasting comfort in what human hands have made!
The colors of a sunrise or sunset dance
Stir a few moments of external pleasure
offer calm, and soothing comfort,
Waves along any shore invite rest and wonder, even the Lost Coast,
A pleasing time at the footstool of an invisible throne
Majestic images of something greater that must be.
Eyes close into the peaceful wind
Ears begin to hear something, something more
The search begins as the heart is drawn
A greater purpose, a deeper meaning
An ultimate reason, passion for being alive
That mysterious inner desire for eternity that pulses on,
God given hunger to seek Him
Perhaps one day to even reach out and find Him in belief
Destiny of eternal desire
To one day know our Creator
And find ourselves in Him.
