Listen to Your Craving

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“He has also set eternity in the human heart…”
Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV
“Listen to your craving” –
That’s what the billboard said,
As larger-than-life snack cakes
Loomed high up, overhead.
But what if we instead would
Attend the need within
To know our Heavenly Father,
Have Him forgive our sin?
The Psalmist knew that craving,
And knew just where to run.
He sought only the favor
Of the Almighty One.
God puts that same desire
In every human heart.
But how we satisfy it
Is what sets us apart.
God wants to be your answer.
He’ll quench that thirst within.
You’ll find Him in His written Word.
Friend, won’t you run to Him?
“As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, my God.”
Psalm 42:1 NIV
