A poem on life’s meaning

This life that I live is filled

with both pleasure and pain.

But the reason I am here

is to know the LORD who reigns.

 

Knowing Him is my purpose.

Knowing Him meets my needs.

He created me for love;

On His love my spirit feeds.

 

He has given me new life.

He has given me a home.

I am His adopted child,

never more to blindly roam.

 

Though today I may feel pain,

I may yet feel pleasure too.

Though my flesh still yearns to sin,

I will choose to trust in You.
