Nothing I Lack: A Poem of Pursuit

Be still my restless heart and running soul

I hold onto the reins like it’s me that has control

There are days I sink; days I swim

All while the waves crash around the river’s bend

I’m called to walk beside you and not run ahead

With all of life’s mysteries, that is easier said than done

There are days I cling to faith and others I doubt

I need Your Spirit in this drought

Lord, I’m caught in this holy place

With Your sweet aroma and saving grace

Lord, I feel You drawing me near

But what tends to happen next is what I fear

One step forward, two steps back

Lord, remind me in You

There is nothing I lack

The years are short, but the days are long

Fix my eyes on You; be my light and my song

On the days I drift away, God keep chasing me still

All while teaching me Your perfect will

I sense Your presence in the storm

But I’m prone to focus on the winds that misinform

Standing here right now, I’m still not sure

Lord give me a faith that will endure

In You, there is rest for my heart’s plea

In You, I’ll dwell and see

In You, I’m running back

In You, there’s nothing I lack

Lord, I’m caught in this holy place

With Your sweet aroma and saving grace

Lord, I feel You drawing me near

But what tends to happen next is what I fear

One step forward and two steps back

Lord, remind me in You

There is nothing I lack
