My Burning Obsession


 


 


Lord, may it be my


burning obsession... 


To love YOU!


With an undivided attention!


 


May you consume me


 with a deep passion... 


And fill me with your


 love and compassion!


 


You bought me with a price—


I’m not my own! 


YOU are the invited guest


 in my heart and my home.


 


By your word, my mind


will be daily renewed... 


Throughout my whole life...


  both digested and chewed.


 


In my heart... May your light


continually shine... 


For YOUR LOVE has


stood the test of time…

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!
