Following God is not a moral,
A regimen of self-serving compliance,
Seeking the right combination of good deeds,
Abstinence and perfectly phrased prayers
In order to ‘secure’ God’s blessing.
It is the journey of a lifetime.
It is finding what our hearts are continually longing for.
It is stepping into satisfaction,
Walking into peace.
Tasting and seeing
Knowing Him for yourself-
God tells us to come to Him
Not out of ego
But for our own greatest good.
With money, sex, power and
The pursuit of happiness.
He offers us Himself
Knowing that there is nothing better
We could ever find,
He is literally the sweetest thing we will ever taste,
The most fulfilling Thing we will ever encounter
The greatest Beauty to behold
The song we’ve been longing to hear
All our lives.
I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
