Have we had enough

Of the culture of the day,

That wants to dictate

As to what we think and say?

Have we had enough

Of insincere friends,

Who use and manipulate

Time and time again?

Have we had enough

Of mainstream media,

With one lie after another

And with all they do feed us?

Have we had enough

Of a corrupt society,

Where greed and control

Is mostly what we hear and see?

Have we had enough

Of the enemy of our soul,

Who comes to kill, steal and destroy

To leave an empty hole?

And have we had enough

Of all the vanity,

Where we think it gives us joy

But disappointments we do see?

Unless we’ve had enough

We’ll never know our deepest need,

That nothing can ever satisfy

Unless the Lord will intercede.

There is One

Whom we can never have enough,

With His gentleness and kindness

And abundance of pure love.

‘Come to Me all you

Who labor and are heavy laden,’

He will calm and restore our soul

To provide His pure haven.

He will never disappoint us

Because the entire fruit of the Spirit,

Overwhelms Him and consumes Him

With all the beauty that’s within it.

Only God can satisfy 

The heart that He created,

When we worship and we give Him praise

And when upon the Lord we’ve waited.

Jesus will calm our every storm

When we confess to Him our sins,

As we sincerely desire a brand new start

And a life grafted in Him.
