yearn…

“…nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist…”
–Acts 17:25-28

It was happening! Acts 17! I found myself singing this prayer one evening a few months ago in my living room. No guitar. No music. Just a lovesickness. And a groping…because of my lack of it.

I never want to be ok with singing. I never want to be ok with just bringing grain in light of out Jesus. I want to yearn! A deep down, guy wrenching yearning for the Father. “Let us show gratitude, by which we may offer God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.” (Hebrews 12:28-29)

Yearn
by Shane Bernard

Holy design
This place in time
That I might seek and find my God
My God

Lord I want to yearn for You
I want to burn with passion
Over You
And only You
Lord I want to yearn

Your joy is mine
Yet why am I fine
With all my singing and bringing grain
In light of Him

Oh you give life and breath
Through Him You give all things
In Him we live and move
That’s why I sing
