A prayer more than a poem really, but the heart fixed on Jesus
finds reality in it.


Looking for better, a longing within,
God is the answer, the place to begin.
Oh, to be like Him, to gaze on His face,
Full joy and longing, to live by that grace.
But how the flesh pulls, it tugs on my heart,
Promises good times, it looks like it’s smart.
But, oh, it deceives, it robs you of joy,
Go ahead do it, no harm is the ploy.
The Spirit is strong, depend on His voice,
Listen, it’s quiet, His way the right choice.
Overcome the flesh, world, and the devil,
Peace and rest are found, vanquishing evil.
God’s Word is a sword, the truth in my hand,
It cuts to my sin, can heal all this land.
When with ears to hear, my cup is filled up,
The lost see Jesus, God is lifted up.
