One Thing - A Poem

The other day a young lady from our church shared the following poem to me. It touched my heart as I had just been meditating on Psalm 27 which touches on a similar theme, especially in verse 4, and so I asked her if I could post the poem on my blog. She said, "Yes, but please don't mention my name." So here's the poem, it's written by a young, anonymous lover of Jesus! I pray that it blesses your day. 

One Thing
Only one thing in Life matters forever-
All that I am, all that I have
Poured out

All fears fade, sin burns away
in the Light and radiance of
His face

Every breath, every heart beat on
Burning with the purpose and passion of Jesus
To know Him, to love Him, to follow Him, every day

Light in my dark
Hope in my despair
Healer of my hurt
Holder of my heart

Light in my eyes
Dance of my feet
Joy in my soul

Rock in my storm
Sword in my battle
Victory's crown

Breaker of my chains
Death to my doubts
Answer to all questions

Word of God
Unshakable promise

And when life is over,
The Course I have run
Beyond the setting of the final sun
I'll see Him there,
He'll meet me there
Together, forever with
