Do we swallow all we hear
And digest what society portrays?
Or do we trust in God’s foundation
To believe all that He says?
Our soulish hunger is never satisfied
When we need to continue to feed;
Our heart and soul with various ventures
With new things to do and read.
Because that void will always simply remain
Like a never-ending hunger;
With an insatiable appetite to consume
All things that are filled with wonder.
The craving for truth will always exist
Because we’re created to ask many questions,
About our existence and our life
And the deep things we hardly mention.
It’s easy to get indigestion
When we feed on unwholesome thoughts;
On all the selfish and the greedy ways
And all the lies that we have bought.
God’s ways are healthy and pure
And when we crave for same;
The fruit of the spirit will manifest
Where love and peace remains.
When we’re hungry for the truth
And when wholesome seed has been sown,
It will flourish into a refreshing spring
Where godly thoughts are grown.
Whoever is hungry for the truth
Will ultimately discover same;
Like a miner who digs deep to find
The most beautiful of remains.
Shallow ways are skin deep
And are always washed away,
Just like a house built on the sand
Where no true foundation will stay.
The truth is simply beautiful
Like a treasure that we discover;
When Jesus becomes our pearl of wisdom
A precious gem like no other.
