In You I’m Found

Nature PhotographyPoetry used to leap from my pencil onto the papers. I still have journals filled with poems from middle and high school. I have to admit that it’s something I’d lost touch with since “growing up.” But yesterday as I was spending some quiet time reading scripture and playing the ukulele, poetry started flowing once again. Though it could be a song/verse cause I wrote it to a tune in my head, and keep singing it on my ukulele.

Here’s something I worked on today:

In You I’m Found

I’ve been searching in all the wrong places.
I’ve been hoping in all the wrong things.
I’ve been longing in all the worldly things.
I’ve been hiding from all the things I know.

We go down this road together,
Oh so many times.
And even when I’m lost,
You’re still right by my side.

I go round and round in circles,
searching for the truth.
But it’s only in you I’m found.
Jesus in you I’m found.
Jesus in you I’m found.

And you’re patiently waiting,
For me to come right back home to you.
No matter how far I stray,
Your arms are open wide.

And you fill me with your love,
Fill me with your joy,
Fill me with laughter,
Fill me with a hope,
That only comes from you.
