Peaceful Yearning

Jesus is with me, yet how much I long to see him! He gives me all of himself, yet I long for more of him. In my imperfection, I’m unable to be totally surrendered to him or to be truly like him.

This poem expresses my desire for Jesus.

Peaceful Yearning

Jesus, you are my Saviour, Lord and Bridegroom!
I love you so much!
I want to love you more.
I need you so much!
I’m dependent on you,
for you are my life!

Help me to trust you fully,
to love you with all I am,
to be surrendered completely to you:
at rest in you, yet yearning for more of you;
at peace in your love,
yet thirsty for your living streams of life.

Search me and know me!
Wash me clean and make me pure.
Count me worthy
to be with you forever.
