Never Going Back

Never going back

To the world

And vanity


I am now filled

With Christ.


No more yearning

No more longing

No more searching


I have found my hidden treasure.


I am now content

And full of peace

Mixed and spiced

With joy.


I was previously married

To the world

Enjoying its pleasures

And ways

But I have found

Another love.


Never going back

To the world


I am now married

To Jesus

And He is now

My pleasure

And treasure.


Goodbye world

I am no longer

hungry, thirsty, dry

And broken.


I now have a different

Kind of hunger and passion

The right hunger and thirst

That I was created for.


The more hungry

And thirsty I am

The more I am filled

And soaked

With the latter rain.


I am now full

Of Christ

My King.



May we constantly

Hunger and thirst

For the living water.

  8. For forty years the Israelites looked back.

    • They yearned… but for more bondage.
    • They were longing… but to be appressed.

    Their hearts should have been searching, for the hidden treasure; found within Gods love. Contentment was their great gain. God had so much peace and joy for them, but were still married to Egypt.

    For forty years they could have been filled with the living water, but instead they died; of thirst!

    We can all learn from them; what not to do!

    Nice post; Good Bless!
