Growing Weary {#FMFParty}

Growing weary in the searchwpid-wp-1447466668046.jpeg
For what the future holds
Content in what I have
But dissatisfied
Knowing there is more.

Searching day and night
Wondering what the next step
will be
not seeing anything
except the ground beneath.

My desire changes
My strength renewed
As I realize that my search
I never gave up
But found something
I wasn’t looking for.

Growing weary is gone
As I realize that
In my search
You are there
You are not answering
My quest for the future
Because you are
In the here and now.

  1. Oh how this resonates! Especially this: Searching day and night
    Wondering what the next step
    will be
    not seeing anything
    except the ground beneath.

    I read Psalm 112 this afternoon and it really convicted me of how I am too often “shuffling or stumbling” through life (as the Message version puts it) rather than having “sunrise break through the darkness” because I “cherish and relish His commandments”- i.e. meditate on them regularly. Such a powerful image of our need to “turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full into His Wonderful Face” (as that worship song says!). Thank you for these words.

  2. Isn’t it so very hard to let God be in the here and now? It seems we’re always trying to rush Him into making it clear what we should do? Love your poem. I’m stopping by from FMF – sitting at #76.

    Blessings,
    Lynette
