When our dependency relies
On all external forces,
For our emotions to be satisfied;
Never enough will be all sources.
Because it simply cannot be enough
To satisfy our soul,
Since our insatiable hunger will increase
To create a deeper hole.
We’re not created to idolise
Money, silver or gold,
Neither people nor relationships
That can create strongholds.
We’re simply made to worship God;
Our sweetest Heavenly Father,
And in selfless ways with servanthood
To sincerely love each other.
But when our wandering hearts
Are constantly desiring,
For fulfilment from all worldly ways;
It’s God we’re not admiring.
Never enough when we don’t love God
Since a substitute is required,
To fill that vacuum from within
With all worldly of desires.
Jesus focused on the Father
And exhibited His ways,
As He’s the express image of Almighty God
And for our souls the price He paid.
When Jesus simply is enough
Our thirst will not remain,
As we’re filled and nourished from within
When faith in Him will stay.
When Jesus is enough…
That hunger from within,
Is satisfied once and for all
As we’re forgiven from all sin.
Worldly ways are never enough
Never have been or ever will,
It’s only God that fills that void within
When His forgiveness is instilled.

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.” 1 John 2:15-17
“Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.” Philippians 2:3-4
