Finding What I am Looking For

My heart longs for so many things

but whatever I may call it,

it is always Jesus.

My heart longs for significance

and I look for it in accomplishments,

praise, right actions, reactions of others,

success, achievement and recognition…

but ultimately, it only comes from Jesus.

My heart longs for happiness

and I look for it in pleasures,

meals, entertainment, comfort,

material goods, distractions, health…

but ultimately, it only comes from Jesus.

My heart longs for love

and I look for it from marriage,

children, family, friends, and self

but it is only when I turn to Him I find

the love my heart is truly looking for.

Everything else is just a shadow

of the real thing.

My LORD brings the only true significance,

the only lasting happiness,

the only unconditional love,

the only security that cannot be shaken,

He is what my heart seeks.
