Simply yours

A Poem by   carole l. haines

Jesus, you are not merely a means to an end,  You are the end, the destination

and You are not just the way to go, You alone are the very road

Not only are You, Lord the road I travel, You are the place I am yearning for

and so I’m being still and knowing God

a knowledge that goes far deeper than I can understand

so as I begin the breathe the fragrance of who You really are

I find contentment in being lost in You and never found again

Jesus, forgive me for wanting the love, at times, more than You, the Lover

and forgive me for the times went I want the gifts, more than loving the Giver

Forgive me wanting to be something more than the joy and peace of being simply yours

and so I’m being still and knowing God

a knowledge that goes far deeper than I can understand

so as I begin the breathe the fragrance of who You really are

I find contentment in being lost in You and never found again

I’m counting all things lost and simply knowing You

and what I’ve left behind will ever prove

that reaching higher for You, Christ, to touch your heart

is the only way I’ll have know my part

 and so I’m being still and knowing God

a knowledge that goes far deeper than I can understand

so as I begin the breathe the fragrance of who You really are

I find contentment in being lost in You and never found again

LORD, I NO LONGER DESIRE TO LEAVE MY MARK UPON THE WORLD

THE ONLY MARK I WANT TO LEAVE NOW, IS YOURS

amen and amen

    Carole,
    I have found what you said about the Psalms: It’s like having someone sing you to sleep, which is exactly what God is said to do ( see Zephaniah 3:17)- to be true in my life. For the past decade, I have been memorizing and meditating on the Psalms- they have become the song I hear upon waking and the words of comfort & wisdom I cherish throughout all the busyness of life.
