Longing

As I survey the life that has passed,
And beckon the future that awaits,
All worldly treasures, trappings and triumphs,
Remind now; this is not what I was made for,
The heart's been left with this divine ache,
Fashioned and formed as an artery of old by the good great Lord.
Pulsating time and again, stirring the holy pining.

Mundane hours of existence go by,
The twitch of pain surges into longing,
For His presence and for secrets of His heart,
Longing so much to be in a better place
Far more pleasant and beautiful than these dry parched lands.
Where Creator Father rules and resides,
His light illuminates the very aching heart so wild.

Tragedies and life's lowest pits,
Conflagrating the search and longing as a forest fire,
That stops at nothing, turning where the wind takes it,
Knowing, tranquility and rest is almost near,
The sweet desire to quench the thirsty soul,
In Him everything then will be still, Lifter of every sorrow,
Bridegroom of heaven, the bride awaits your rescue.

In life's electrifying moments of earthly glory,
The anguish annoyance lingers again, oh this eternal longing
To be home with the maker of this heart,
Sitting on His lap and reveling in His delight
Ever yearning to leave this earthly tent
But yet living with this longing, the age-old aching
Will only end in His presence when we meet face to face.

We all have this urge to unify with our Creator and Sculptor. Its the echelons of divinity and faith that up us in the ladder nearer and nearer. For when the real time comes its the light of ray I seek and fly my way with the angels into eternity.

PS:- Haven't been blogging in a while. Somehow was browsing and found your blogs. You surely have come a long way in the last year. Congrats on being blessed with such a lovely daughter. May God bless you and your family.

A part of me yearns to unify with our Creator and Sculptor as well and with the ever increasing echelons of faith and divinity I will up myself in the ladder. For when the time comes I shall seek for that ray of light and fly into enternity with angels by my side.
