I Shall Seek My God...

I Shall Seek My God!


Oh God, you are my God whom

 I shall seek earnestly.

I humbly seek your face and

 wait patiently…


My soul longs for you...  In a dry land

 where there’s no water.

As I rest, my body is in pain

 and will soon falter…


I come to your sanctuary to behold

 your glory and power!

And I long for your

 presence this very hour!


Because your loving kindness is better

 than life, I will praise you!

Because of your love and mercy,

 I do exalt you!


I will bless you as long as I live, lifting

 up my hands to your name…

Your message of hope and mercy

 I will daily proclaim!


My soul is satisfied and I offer

 praise with joyful lips!

Your goodness in my life...

 Most certainly fits!


I remember you in bed and meditate

 on you each night…

And you tell me;  everything

will be alright!”


You’re my God and protector

 and best friend indeed!

And have blessed me in meeting

my every need!


You’ve given joy and health

 and have sought my well being…

Thank you my Lord and God... 

You are my everything!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
