Longings

December 17, 2013

~

Two things will anchor your life

The first is God does not lie

You can overflow with hope

Heaven is for real
~

The Holy Spirit

Gives you the power to see

And experience the hope

Overflow with joy

Anchored in reality

Illuminated by love

~

In marriage a struggle comes

Aware of the weaknesses

Others failings and my own

There’s war in the soul
~

What do I yearn for

What is my greatest longing

Is it for real love

The ever lasting friendship

Of the beloved who’s near

~

We unconsciously expect

For a person to provide

Those deep internal longings

It never happens

~

Only God can give

A deep soul rhythm of joy

And dance with the soul

Others can participate

Celebrate with you his love

~

There is a separateness

For there to be a oneness

A paradox discovered

When we come in trust

~

This is discovered

Through a life time of seeking

Making choices to trust him

With impossible

Circumstances we live in

We choose his voice to follow
~
“God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which (1) it is impossible for God to lie, (2) we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor of the soul, firm and secure……” Hebrews 6:16-18

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13

~

“….we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently….” Romans *:23-25
