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.
