Here is a good reason to go to Church -- to find God...
Lately, and by that I mean the last six months, I have been reworking poems. Here is one I workshopped on Blueline Poetry. My visits there have been helpful. This poem is about wanting God in one's life. More so, it says "yearning." Advent and Christmas are good seasons for finding God. We ask that the Lord Christ be born in our heart at Christmas. Advent is the preparation for the birth of Christ.
A Man finds he Yearns for God
by Peter Menkin
Shall I be personal about it.
I have begged the holy spirit:
Lead me in reading the Bible.
For my hope is in the Lord.
Nothing matches for me
this hope of knowing God.
I have implored the spirit of truth.
Reveal to me the Word
of God in the Bible.
I yearn, this is a man's truth.
To live the life--
The promise I want
to have this language in my heart,
in my mind, on my lips. This is an earnest need:
yearn. God chooses us first.
We go to his call.
