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-
Jesus.
All that I am, all that I have
Poured out
for Jesus

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

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

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

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

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

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

Word of God
Unshakable promise
Faithful
Jesus

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
Jesus.
