“And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind; for the Lord searches all hearts, and understands all the imaginations of the thoughts:  If you seek him, he will be found…but if you forsake him, he will cast you off for forever.”  1 Chronicles 28:9

We try to fill the void inside with what the world provides,

In hopes we will find happiness for our dreary, empty lives,

But, my friend it’s only temporary, like chasing after the wind,

The things of this world simply won’t fulfill, the emptiness within.

We waste the time in mundane things, but the world won’t satisfy;

For we can never know what’s missing, until Christ comes inside.

For God created us to need Him, and to that end He gave,

His only begotten Son, Jesus, who defeated death and grave.

He died, then rose in three days to bring new life and peace,

And reconciled us to Himself, as it was meant to be.

We need to stop and ask ourselves, “What are we looking for?”

And can we truly be fulfilled, if we don’t ask the Lord,

To come inside and bring the change that’s needed in our lives,

So we will find true happiness…which is only found in Christ!
