The last time I wrote a poem it was during lunch. It came to me within minutes. Click here. I’m not a poet, but I love poems. My desire to know God better inspired this. It’s called Longings.

My heart longs for You
My spirit craves intimacy with You
My desire is to know You better

The shadows of life engulf me
The limits of time constrain me
The laziness of my soul refrain me

Who else knows me better?
Who else loves me like You do?
Who else can I trust with my deepest fears?

The longing I feel
The longing that drives me
Is placed inside of my heart by the One who longs after me

What a beautiful poem. It could be a great prayer I think.

I love the bit about the longing "being placed" inside of my heart by the ONE WHO LONGS AFTER ME!!!

That is an awesome poem! You should write more.

Art said...

That is great. I think that is one thing God really wants - for our hearts to long for God!

I am afraid I must insist that you stop the "I'm not a poet" talk. You are. Just as you are a writer.

God has given you a voice. He is urging you to share it in the written word. It is His gift to you, and yours to us. And we love it.

Thank you for sharing your heart, my sister.

Oh I love that! I write poetry some, I actually used to write more when I was younger. There's nothing like it, I think.
