It is wonderful to have the ability
To enjoy many things in life,
But as satisfying as it can be
It will never truly suffice.
Because enjoyment is temporary
It’s like a thrill for the soul,
And as wonderful as the feeling is
There will always remain a hole.
Have we noticed on occasion
When we acquire something new,
That it’s most exciting initially
With a renewed passion too.
But over time the satisfaction
Will fade just like a leaf,
As we take the item for granted
Or no longer wish to keep.
Because our Creator created us
To find true satisfaction in only Him,
As He satisfies the longing
And the deep desire for truth within.
Depression can come so easily
When circumstances don’t go our way,
But when we trust in God to meet our needs
There’s a hope that will remain.
When God satisfies our soul
Nothing ever will compare,
Because the beauty and the joy within
Is from His tender love and care.
True satisfaction will only come
When God’s hand will touch our heart,
And when we receive a deeper revelation
To be truly set apart.
People will always disappoint us
No matter how wonderful they may be,
Because the fallen nature of mankind
Most times loves conditionally.
But the heart of God will satisfy
When our faith is found in Him,
And when Jesus becomes our Lord and Savior
So we’re satisfied in Him.
