My Soul's Desire





I Am Striving
To Receive The Commendation
From
The Saints' Commander In Chief!
AND
I Desire
With My Whole Heart
To Meet The One Who Died
So That My Soul
Could Have Eternal Peace And Relief!

I Think Often
About The Lord Christ
AND
Today
My Thoughts Took To Walking A Different Way
AND
I Wondered ...
What Is There In Mankind
That Made The Godhead Decide
Before Man Even Had A Mind
That Jesus Christ Would Die
In Their Stead
AND
Before They Had Even Sinned
To Return Them
To The Bosom Of The Divine King?!

This Is Lofty Thinking
 Outside Of My Realm
Outside Of My Pay Grade
Outside Of My Operating Brief
Outside Of My Understanding
But
Totally Inside Of Jesus' Faith
Of Which
In This Hour
I Have A Measured Piece!
The Answer Is God's To Give In His Time
AND
 If ... He So Chooses!

I Am Made
In God's Likeness
In God's Image
AND
Within Me
Is God's Breath Of Life
AND
If That Does Not
Make Me Special
Then
I Don't Understand Anything
About Christ's Devoted-To-Me Dying Love!

I Say My Prayers!
God Hears Them!
I Tell Of Worries And Woes!
I Tell Of Fears
Frets
AND
Family
AND
I Even Complain Of
Un-opening
Non-Locking Doors!

I Tell Of My Hope For Salvation!
I Give Utterance To Pleasures Of Delight
That Are Wrought
At The Hand Of My Master
AND
Given To Me
Before
For It
I Had Even Given A Faint Thought Sunlight!

I Love The God-Man Jesus!
I Believe
That Christ The Lord
Is My Shepherd Divine!
AND
Through The Struggle
I Am Striving To Walk In His Way!
AND
I Humbly Recognize
That Mere Man Am I
AND
Plead
For Godly Illumination
To Shine In
From
My Dim Clouded Eyes!

I Cannot Wake Myself
Come The Morning!
I Can't Shield Myself
From Things That Terrorize The Night!
I Can't Get Victory Over Sin
WITHOUT
King Jesus
AND
I Can't Utter A Single Earnest Faithful Prayer
WITHOUT
The Holy Spirit Leading The Way To The Light!

I Know
AND
I Accept That
There Is Nothing That I Can Do
That I Can Do Without My Lord
Save
Refuse Sure Salvation
To Run Wild
With The Wily Wicked Fraud
AND
I Am Grateful To God
That Full Disclosure Is Mine
AND
No One Can Make The Decision For Me
To Worship The Great God
AND
To Do It Gladly
Answering The Sounding Salvation Call!

I Desire To See
The Lover Of My Soul
In All His Majesty
AND
As My King
AND
To Worship Before Him
AND
Handle Him
AND
To Have That Face-To-Face
Personal Interview With Him!
That ... Is My Soul's Goal!
